Forgotten Runes: Wizard’s Cult, by writer Joe Rechtman and artist Reilly Brown, will be a 10-issue series that starts as stories about different wizards in different situations, including trying to steal a treasure chest, fending off accusations of kidnapping, and suspecting their master has been replaced with an impostor. Eventually the stories merge into a larger narrative with a wider scope and higher stakes. The first issue will be released on November 22, 2023, with covers A and B by Brown and cover C by Ivan Tao, and the print edition will include an in-game code worth $20 and redeemable within the upcoming Forgotten Runiverse MMORPG.
Forgotten Runes is a Web3 fantasy franchise that includes animation, the video game, and comics, all based on a set of customizable NFT characters that are playable characters in the game. The company has produced a prequel comic, Forgotten Runes: Wizard’s Cult #0, and they have printed 200,000 copies as well as putting it online for free.
Brown was the artist for Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point (see “DC Comics and Epic Games Team Up for ‘Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point’”).
