Dynamite Entertainment, as part of their partnership with Atari, recently launched a new line of comics based on Atari’s library of game titles. Kicking things off was a miniseries based on Atari’s unfinished series of video games, SwordQuest. Now, Dynamite has released an over 144-page paperback collecting issues 0-5 of this series along with bonus material!
When Peter Case was a young boy, he embarked on an epic adventure to claim the golden sword worth over $50,000 and be crowned the 1984 Champion of SwordQuest. Unfortunately, the game was discontinued. Now 30 years later, Peter is trapped in the game of life – and he’s losing. But after learning the SwordQuest prizes will be on display at the World Arcade Museum, Peter’s life gains new purpose. Teaming up with a band of like-minded losers, Peter prepares for his greatest quest yet – stealing the Sword of Ultimate Sorcery. Easier said than done, when mysterious strangers and conspiracy theories lurk around every corner.
Written by Chad Bowers and Chris Sims this journey into the past is laced with humor and adventure. Meanwhile, the retro art by Ghostwriter X transports readers to the world of old school video games. Don’t miss out, grab your copy and “claim a prize most rare” today!
