Dark Horse Comics and Critical Role have announced three new projects set to release in 2019. Based on epic tales from the world of Exandria, these new comics, art books and more will explore this universe in new and original ways! The most popular digital tabletop game in the world, Critical Role is live-streamed every week and set in Exandria. In each episode, veteran voice actor and Game Master Matthew Mercer leads his nerdy ass and wildly entertaining friends (also fellow voice actors!) on a thrill ride of turmoil and adventure. The cast includes Matthew Mercer (Overwatch, Final Fantasy XV, Fallout 4), Travis Willingham (Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers Assemble, The Legend of Korra), Marisha Ray (Star Wars: Battlefront, Batgirl: Spoiled, Metal Gear: Survive), Taliesin Jaffe (Street Fighter, World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy XIV), Ashley Johnson (Blindspot, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teen Titans Go!), Sam Riegel (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, One Punch Man, The Amazing Spiderman), Liam O’Brien (Star Wars Rebels, Transformers: Robots in Disguise, Wolverine and the X-Men), and Laura Bailey (Dragon Ball Z, Fullmetal Alchemist, Gears of War 4).

The six-issue series will be available through Dark Horse Digital and through retail stores and continues to follow the origin stories of engaging characters, material hinted at but not fully disclosed in the live-stream. From award-nominated writer Jody Houser and first series artist Olivia Samson, with colorist MSASSYK and letterer Ariana Maher comes Critical Role: Vox Machina Originsseries II, the highly anticipated sequel to Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins series I. The beautiful first issue cover is by artist Fiona Staples. The series will be collected into a trade paperback collection in summer 2020. 

In Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins series II, familiar faces from Critical Role’s smash-hit first campaign return as their escapades in Stilben lead them towards their next adventure—and a dire threat to Grog Strongjaw, the goliath barbarian, when he goes missing in the night. Tracking him down will see the party lose one member, gain another, and reveal parts of Grog’s secret past. But first, his friends have to actually find him.
