I've been all over Dark Horse's Mass Effect comic tie-ins because I love that series. But I haven't really sampled any of their Dragon Age books. That may all change on August 22 when the first issue of Dragon Age: Those Who Speak is released. This three issue comic book mini-series is written by Dragon Age lead writer David Gaider and senior writer for Star Wars: The Old Republic Alexander Freed. But the real reason I'm intrigued by the mini-series is because it stars the handsome (but unfortunately unromanceable by guys) Alistair.
The plot involves King Alistair traveling to an empire of evil mages to uncover the fave of his lost father. His companions will be the pirate captain Isabela and underworld merchant Varric. I appreciate that David Gaider is at least behind the story, but I'm more interested in who the art team is going to be. Because I had a huge crush on Alistair, so I'm less interested in the plot than how pretty he's going to look. Yes, I'm that shallow!
