The Critical Role: The Mighty Nein Origins line from Dark Horse Comics and Critical Role continues to grow with Critical Role: The Mighty Nein Origins – Nott the Brave. Writer Sam Maggs (Captain Marvel, The Unstoppable Wasp) is joined by Critical Role Game Master Matthew Mercer and cast member Sam Riegel, with art by William Kirkby (Rat Queens, Regular Show), colors by Mildred Louis (Agents of the Realm, Invader Zim), and letters by Critical Role comics alum Ariana Maher (Prism Stalker, Ringside) for a heartbreaking tale about a halfling’s end and a goblin’s beginning.

Veth Brenatto doesn’t have an exciting life, but she likes it that way. Unlike her childhood, it’s safe. Predictable. And her husband and son love her as fiercely as she loves them. But Veth’s cozy existence is turned on its head when she and her family are captured by raiders. In order to save them, Veth will commit an atrocity that will sever her from all that she loves––maybe forever––and lead her to become Nott the Brave of the Mighty Nein.  

Critical Role: The Mighty Nein Origins – Nott the Brave graphic novel will be available everywhere books are sold April 6, 2022. It is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop and bookstore.

The Critical Role: The Mighty Nein Origins line is presented in hardcover format and volumes will retail for $17.99 each. More from Dark Horse Comics and Critical Role include the ongoing Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins comic series, the upcoming Critical Role: The Tales of Exandria comic series, and the Critical Role: The Chronicles of Exandria art book.

Praise for Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins:

Vox Machina Origins is a triple-threat treat to fans new, old, and uninitiated. Awesome artwork = check. Superb storytelling = check. Humour, heart, and a heavy right hook of action = check, check, check.”–Fantasy Hive

“Those who are versed in the different mannerisms and personalities of Vox Machina will be thoroughly impressed in how they are captured in Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins. From Scanlan’s vicious mockery and high sex drive to Keyleth’s naivety to Vex’ahila always looking for the best deal, it is presented brilliantly through the writing of Jody Houser and the art from Olivia Samson.”–butwhytho
