It seems that R.A. Salvatore is everywhere these days. And I love it! He and his son, Geno Salvatore, are writing all-new adventures for Drizzt in The Legend Of Drizzt: Neverwinter Tales #3. I’m always a sucker for new dark elf adventures. I miss his old allies but, as with all stories, things change. As always he has Guenhwyvar with him, plus his unique unicorn steed. Dahlia, his dark-hearted elven companion, accompanies him as well. Unfortunately, I didn’t read the first two issues, so I’m playing catch up with this one…luckily, it wasn’t difficult.

Our first exposure to the story in this issue is with Thimbledorf Pwent, once a mighty dwarven warrior, who has risen from the grave as a vampire. He is being tempted by a ghost to seek out and drink from nearby creatures but refuses to do so. We transition to Drizzt and Dahlia seeking the killer of a goblin tribe when they stumble upon a group of humans that are not what they seem to be. One quick little fight later gives us quite a bit more information about the unfriendly group.

The last words we hear from Drizzt in this comic are inquisitive ones regarding Valindra Shadowmantle…a deranged lich from their past. As we move back to Pwent, we see a beautiful girl being led to the cave where he is hiding. His stomach rumbling, he tries desperately to ask her to go elsewhere, though she cannot hear him. The last panel of the comic removes all doubt as to who is pulling the strings in this charade.

Beautifully rendered art from Agustin Padilla and expert colors from Leonard O’Grady really help to complete this great tale. Everything about this comic makes me happy. If you are a Drizzt fan, there is no reason why you shouldn’t buy this. Actually, I feel quite remiss for not having picked up the first two issues…something I am inclined to correct immediately. If you aren’t a fan, pick this up and you will be. Definitely worth the four bucks it will cost you.
