It’s Dragon Age day and while the tributes and studio reflections are still ongoing, BioWare and Dark Horse revealed a special edition of a recently announced comic called Dragon Age Blue Wraith. Not only will Dragon Age fans get a special variant copy of the new comic, but they’ll also get an exclusive art print as well.
The art seen below features the stylings from the talented Matt Taylor and honestly? It’s about time Fenris got some love!

Say what you will about Dragon Age 2 (and there is a lot to say, those repetitious environmentals were rough), it had some incredible character arcs throughout all three chapters. Fenris started out as a least favourite of mine but quickly rose to the top through his character development, so when Dark Horse announced that my beloved broody Tevinter elf is back and bigger than ever in a brand new post-Inquisition adventure with a new Dragon Age comic, I was beyond hype.
The new comic series is called Dragon Age: Blue Wraith and will see a Fenris set in a time when the hunt for Solas is on. The team behind Dragon Age: Blue Wraith is thankfully similar for those that are familiar with some of the past Dark Horse Dragon Age Comics, featuring writers Nunzio DeFilippis (Dragon Age: Knight Errant, new X-Men) and Christina Weir (Dragon Age: Deception, New X-Men). Artist Fernando Heinz Furukawa (Dragon Age: Knight Errant, God is Dead) is also returning, with the colorist work done by Michael Atiyeh (The Orville: New Beginnings, Halo: Escalation).
According to the description of Dragon Age: Blue Wraith courtesy of Dark Horse:
“Dragon Age: Blue Wraith starts off with the fanatical Qunari seeking to topple the Tevinter mageocracy. Caught in the middle, one powerful young mage’s desperate search for her father brings her face-to-face with a notorious mage hunter—Fenris, the Blue Wraith.”
The new adventure arrives on January 15, 2020 and will feature 3 issues in total. Are you excited? Because I’m excited. Hit me up and geek out with all things Dragon Age with me over on Twitter @DirtyEffinHippy!
