I finally had a chance to go by my LCS and pick up the set of issue #0. Turns out that one of the writers, Chris Sims, lives in Durham, so the store owners had him autograph several issues and saved one for me. Plus, I got a free Fireworld cart that a local used video game store had donated as part of the writer signing event. Not too shabby! (Turns out that the store also is promoting another video game comic, Little Nightmares, based on the recent PS4 release, specifically the artist Thomas Boatwright and his variant cover versions, and as issue #1 had just come out, he was there to promote the comic and signed my copy for free and gave me a free watercolor he had done of Six, the protagonist in the game. It was a wonderful cross-over day of gaming and comics.)
Anyhow, I am curious to see where Swordquest goes as a story. Clearly the creators and Dynamite have a lot of enthusiasm for the project (and Dynamite is still heavily promoting Tim Lapetino's Art of Atari, which is great.) I felt like the setup was a bit better than what I was expecting based on reading a summary.
My LCS also has a ton of issue #0 left (at least 50 copies).
