The next three issues are scheduled to release monthly following the first issue’s debut, and the entire series will ultimately be compiled as a full-color, printed graphic novel, which will be published by Dynamite in early 2015. Additionally, each issue will be available as part of an optional bundle containing an exclusive in-game bonus for players of  Path of Exile, such as cosmetic armor effects, among other surprises. The standalone issues and bundles will be priced at $4.00 and $20.00 USD respectively.

In close collaboration with Grinding Gear Games’ Creative Director Erik Olofsson and Narrative Designer Edwin McRae, the  Path of Exile  comic series is illustrated by Carlos Rodriguez and written by Royal McGraw.
