New Dragon Age comic this summer

It’s not Dragon Age III, but it’s something; Dark Horse is releasing a new three-part comic for the franchise, called Dragon Age: Those Who Speak, bringing Alistair back into the spotlight once more.

The story is to follow up The Silent Grove and also includes Isabela and Varric from Dragon Age II. Their destination? “An empire of evil mages.”

David Gaider, Dragon Age‘s lead writer, and Alexander Freed, Star Wars: The Old Republic‘s senior writer, are penning the series, with the first issue out this August.
