IDW announces ‘Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves’ movie prequel comic

‘Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves-The Feast of the Moon’ comes out February 2023.

Press Release

IDW has announced a new 96-page graphic novel, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves-The Feast of the Moon, a prequel comic to the upcoming Paramount Pictures film. Written by Jeremy Lambert and Ellen Boener with art by Eduardo Ferigato and Guillermo Sanna, the comic will introduce Edgin, Holga, and other antiheroes from the movie. Fans can expect to find it in February 2023, wherever books and comics are sold.

“I can’t begin to describe how fun it was to open up my notebook filled with scribbles for old D&D campaigns and start a new chapter for a different kind of story,” says Lambert. “What I love about these characters is that they aren’t the brave, gallant, all-powerful warriors that will forever win the day—they’re regular people, just like you or me. They’re emotionally messy, and they are completely in over their heads.”

So what’s Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves-The Feast of the Moon about?

Stranded in a town under siege after their latest heist goes awry, Edgin and his band of thieves find themselves enmeshed in a bitter conflict between the town’s inhabitants and a tyrannical Bandit King who has exploited the town’s resources for years under threat of violence and ruin. With their backs against the wall, Edgin and his associates vow to help the townsfolk repel the Bandit King’s forces once and for all—but as the danger escalates and the thieves’ loyalties are tested, allegiances begin to shift, and it soon becomes clear that all is not as it seems.

“I’ve always been a huge fantasy fan,” says Ferigato. “Dragons, dwarves, elves, and barbarians are all among my favorite things to draw. I think of my style as very cinematic, so I’m really excited for the film and eager to see how it’s going to turn out. I hope the fans will have as much fun reading the finished comic as I’ve had drawing these pages!”

Written by Jeremy Lambert (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Ellen Boener with art by Eduardo Ferigato (Last Flight Out) and Guillermo Sanna (Luke Cage), Feast of the Moon introduces Edgin, Holga, and more of the movie’s ignoble antiheroes, and tells the thrilling, hilarious, and unexpected story of events leading up to the epic calamity that will ultimately ensnare them.

“Creating a comic set in the world of this exciting new film means we get to enjoy the fun of bringing together all the elements that make D&D so versatile and well suited to different mediums,” says IDW editor Jonathan Manning. “Not only did we get to build and expand on the personal histories of these exciting new characters, but we also got to explore so many of the elements we love the most about the game of D&D—its class systems, its creatures, and its mechanics. Feast of the Moon is the perfect introduction for anyone looking to get into the world of D&D for the first time, as well as for longtime fans. Play the game, watch the movie, read the comic!”
