    Collects the original Dragon Age trilogy plus the next two miniseries. They are all solid stories. I like how they mix and match characters from the video game and characters brought into the comics continue to pop up in later miniseries too. For the most part the art is good. Chad Hardin and Carmen Carnero drew the first 4 miniseries. They have both moved onto working for DC and Marvel. Received a review copy from Dark Horse and Edelweiss.

Some were authored by Dragon Age lead writer David Gaider (The Silent Grove, Those who Speak) while another is a Gaider/Alexander Freed collaboration (Until We Sleep). Greg Rucka helms Magekiller and Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir head Knight Errant. These are not all the Dragon Age comics out there: note that e.g., newer titles like Deception and Blue Wraith are not part of the collection. At a whopping 800 pages, this is very nicely value priced and a great way to delve more into the great lore of Dragon Age. Nearly all the stories take place right before Inquisition (3 of them) or around Inquisition time. The last series takes place just after the Trespasser DLC. Characters from the games spring up often but are rarely the main protagonists of the stories. Instead, we can get new perspectives on the lore and story of Dragon Age through these fresh faces. The artwork can vary a bit but for the most part the characters look as they did in the game. I liked some stories much more than others and the pacing can be very very slow. As we wait for Dragon Age IV, this is a good survey on the lore and a great way to get ready for the new game, Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.

    With several different authors and artists involved in this collection, I was quite impressed with the cohesive branch of the Dragon Age Universe that these creators have produced. A step removed from the games, each of these stories enhanced my understanding of pre-existing characters, but it was the final two stories, Magekiller and Knight Errant, that really stood far above the others.

A step removed from the games, each of these stories enhanced my understanding of pre-existing characters, but it was the final two stories, Magekiller and Knight Errant, that really stood far above the others. The introduction of new characters, the mage hunters Tessa and Marius, and the landless knight and his elven squire, Ser Aaron and Vaea, brought an exciting new direction for the story as they find themselves caught up in the actions of the Inquisition. The first three of the stories, The Silent Grove, Those Who Speak, and Until We Sleep were all enjoyable as well, but despite being written by one of the brains behind the original franchise, David Gaider, the story contained within was not as powerful as the latter two. Telling the story of King Alistair's quest to find out the truth behind his father, Maric, these stories play directly with characters who fought alongside the player in the games and, honestly, wasn't as engaging for that reason. The stories felt constrained by the roles that Alistair and Varric would have in the game Dragon Age: Inquisition, and it shows with how tame the adventures are. Where the latter two can add high stakes, this narrative relies on visual spectacle. And what a stunning spectacle it is. All five of the graphic novels contained within are a delight to look at. I'm most partial to Knight Errant because of its slight manga-esque leanings. However, all these works are striking and their use of both bright, and dark, colours to populate the page deserve a lot of the credit. Everyone involved in these stories deserves a lot of credit as they are fun, and pulpy, fantasy adventures that are enjoyable whether you've been exposed to Dragon Age before or not. I highly recommend them.

    When it comes to graphic novel collections - especially ones such as this, where there are several different artists and authors- it can be really easy for the collection to feel all over the place. Luckily, this is a surprisingly cohesive collection that does a good job of blending in aspects from the each games plotline. Each graphic novel is solid; none of them struck me as lacking, though I was also not blown away by any of them. Just good, solid writing. Still, it’s definitely deserving of When it comes to graphic novel collections - especially ones such as this, where there are several different artists and authors- it can be really easy for the collection to feel all over the place.

    The art differs considerably in style volume to volume, to varying effect, but the writing makes for highly enjoyable, canonized stories that feature more than a few appearances by the cast of the video games. The last of the stories, Knight Errant, ended up being both the most lighthearted and my favorite of the bunch -- it felt most like a story you might see in the game in either its computer or tabletop formats -- but there isn't really a dud in the set. I'm into these enough to continue on The art differs considerably in style volume to volume, to varying effect, but the writing makes for highly enjoyable, canonized stories that feature more than a few appearances by the cast of the video games.

    I've not played the game, but you don't have to to enjoy these stories. This collection has everything you could want in an epic fantasy saga- lots of action, magic, unnecessarily scantily clad women, pirates, evil bad guys, elves, dwarves, some kind of horned people, a quest to find a missing king, all kinds of intrigue going on in the present and the past, and, oh yeah! Dragons! And that's just the first three books! We also get Magekiller and Knight Errant to finish things off. The first thre I've not played the game, but you don't have to to enjoy these stories.

The first three books, The Silent Grove, Those Who Speak, and Until We Sleep, are one continuing story, told from different perspectives. The story is nicely paced, full of action, a good amount of backstory and character development, and some gorgeous art. Magekiller is okay, it's a decent story, though the pacing is all over the place. Again, gorgeous art on this one too. Knight Errant is a fun story with some new characters, and an appearance from an older character; a good story, great characters, a M/F relationship that has depth and (gasp!) isn't a romance! The art style is different on this one, almost anime-ish, but still lovely. Overall, a solid collection, worth reading.
