Drizzt returns to the Underdark! The pall that had descended over the North is gone, and a new day has dawned on a victorious Mithral Hall, but no matter how bright things seem on the surface, Drizzt know that what lurks just under his feet remains steeped in evil and charged with unimaginable power. Archmage has everything Drizzt’s fans crave: action, adventure, characters that resonate with equal measures of warrior spirit and deep compassion, and no shortage of wicked dark elves!

Oni Press, Portland’s premier independent comic book publisher, announced today that iconic Los Angeles comic shop Meltdown Comics will be hosting Executive Producer & Writer MARC GUGGENHEIM in their store on August 26th at 7:00 PM.
Guggenheim is the Executive Producer behind the CW’s ARROW, and mastermind behind the recently announced LEGENDS OF TOMORROW. When asked to describe his creator-owned passion project STRINGERS from Oni Press, Guggenheim stated:
“STRINGERS is based on a real life profession: Freelance videographers. Those car chases, shootouts, and fires you see on your local news? You can thank these “stringers” for ‘em.
One night in Los Angeles, two struggling stringers capture something on their camera that they shouldn’t have. And now our heroes have to survive an adrenaline-fueled night in Los Angeles with street gangs, crooked cops, and a rival stringer after their heads.”

The pall that had descended over the North is gone, and a new day has dawned on a victorious Mithral Hall, but no matter how bright things seem on the surface, Drizzt and his companions know that what lurks just under their feet remains steeped in evil and charged with unimaginable power.
The dark elves of Menzoberranzan, including the powerful Archmage Gromph, aren’t done with Drizzt yet. And consumed by their own power struggles, feeling backed into a corner, the drow may just be desperate enough to call on demonic forces from the deepest reaches of the Abyss, and unleash a disaster even the Underdark could never have prepared for. Archmage has everything Drizzt’s fans crave: action, adventure, characters that resonate with equal measures of warrior spirit and deep compassion, and no shortage of wicked dark elves.
