IDW Publishing is thrilled to announce another action-packed entry in their line of Dungeons & Dragons comics! This April, DUNGEONS & DRAGONS: CUTTER, a five-issue miniseries written by R.A. and Geno Salvatore with art by David Baldeon and covers by Steve Ellis, weaves the tale of a family fiercely divided and at odds with itself, with a legendary sword hanging in the balance!
When the battle-hardened Drow renegade Tos’un must choose an heir to his legacy, his half-Drow son Tierflin and daughter Doum’weille become locked in vicious competition. But what will the prize, the bloodthirsty sword Khazid’hea, have to say on the matter?
“These comic series have become a wonderful tool for me to fill in the blanks and to crystallize my thoughts on the Legend of Drizzt novels going forward,” explains R.A. Salvatore. “The fallout from the twisting events in Neverwinter Tales not only came into play in the last couple of Drizzt books, but allowed me a strong plot line for an upcoming novel I’ve yet to pen. The same is true for Cutter – I see it already. So while these comic stories are self-contained, they open up to the wider stories going forward.”
From the writing team of powerhouse Dungeons & Dragons veterans R.A. and Geno Salvatore comes a tale steeped in action and intrigue, woven into the fantastically imaginative world that can only be found in the Forgotten Realms of Dungeons & Dragons. Rounded out by the vivid art of David Baldeon and Steve Ellis’ striking covers, DUNGEONS & DRAGONS: CUTTER is sure to be a wildly fun ride for fans of Dungeons & Dragons and comics everywhere, not to mention an unexpected tie-in to this summer’s blockbuster R.A. Salvatore novel!
Join us as we host the exciting launch of a brand new series from IDW Publishing, with our VITRIOL THE HUNTER launch event!
This exciting new series is a must for fans of HELLBOY, BPRD, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, and BALTIMORE: THE PLAGUE SHIPS.
Drawing on folklore and old monster myths prevalent in today’s society, shaping them into a story that’s one part classic horror film, and one part futuristic fantasy; imagine Hammer Studios’s Horror of Dracula by way of Blade Runner.
A self-proclaimed vigilante, Vitriol leads a mission to cleanse his homeland of the malicious monsters that have overtaken it, led by a brutal vampire with some tyrannical inclinations.
Set in the city of Basilika in the year 2127, Vitriol the Hunter chronicles Vitriol’s encounters with werewolves, hordes of hellions, and other walking myths.
Co-created, and featuring the artwork of GOOD CHARLOTTE’s Billy Martin, and written by Brent Allen, VITRIOL THE HUNTER is set to be one of the breakout hits of the Spring, and we’re honored to be the official launch spot for the book this March!

Mega-City One, 2099. This vast urban nightmare has sprung up from the post-apocalyptic ashes of North America’s east coast. Each of the 400 million citizens based there is a potential criminal and only the Judges can prevent total anarchy. These future lawmen are judge, jury, and executioner.
