Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides Comic Book Heats Up IDW Publishing in November

The Creative Team of Jim Zub and Max Dunbar Delve Into Upcoming D&D Sourcebook for Inspiration

IDW Publishing reunites the Dungeons & Dragons: Legends of Baldur’s Gate creative team of writer Jim Zub and artist Max Dunbar for an all-new adventure: Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides! Debuting in November 2019, the five-issue miniseries delves into the mythology established in the highly-anticipated D&D adventure Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus arriving on September 17.

In Infernal Tides, fan-favorite Minsc and his friends are caught in the middle of devil-tainted corruption that has taken hold of Baldur’s Gate. Unravelling the secret of its source will take the heroes to unexpected places and threaten the sanctity of their very souls. Even if they survive this perilous journey, there will be Hell to pay!

"Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides is a wild ride through some of my favorite parts of D&D lore," says Jim Zub. "Getting the chance to help develop the story and setting for a brand new D&D sourcebook directly with the D&D team, having Max Dunbar contribute key concept art to that adventure, and then getting both of us back at IDW to create a brand new comic story that propels Minsc and the rest of the Baldur's Gate heroes into the same kind of devilish danger is an absolute dream come true. This comic is going to be pure D&D-fueled adrenalin. I can't wait for readers to see how it all rolls out.

“I’m so connected to these characters,” Jim continues, “that I’m shaving my head and donning the purple makeup and leather armor to play as Minsc at D&D Live 2019: The Descent. Watch me roll some dice with Chris Perkins as DM and Matthew Mercer playing Boo in the final part of The Descent at dungeonsanddragons.com on May 18 at 8pm PT.”

"I am so thrilled to be able to return to D&D comics with Jim Zub in Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides," says Max Dunbar. “This story plunges our Heroes of Baldur's Gate into an adventure of a scope and scale we haven't seen yet in these comics. We'll dive into the heart of locations and events that are absolutely legendary to D&D. I feel incredibly lucky to be working with Jim Zub, incredible colorist Sebastian Cheng, IDW, and Wizards of the Coast on this vast and diabolical story!"

"We are so excited to be bringing back the original Baldur's Gate creative team for this new series," says David Hedgecock, associate publisher at IDW. "What an incredible privilege it has been to watch these creators and this story become such an important part of D&D canon!"

Infernal Tides, while an accommodating entry point for intrepid new readers, rewards longtime fans as the continuation of Jim Zub’s epic comic book storyline which began with Dungeons & Dragons: Legends of Baldur’s Gate and continued into Shadows of the Vampire, Frost Giant’s Fury, and Evil at Baldur’s Gate.
