Pathfinder: Origins #2 Review


In the next part of the origins of Pathfinders, Kyra is up next and she is has one hell of a story but is it as good as the last one? Read on to find out more.

The official description from Dynamtie:

To prove herself to the legendary Pathfinder Society, the holy warrior Kyra recounts a tale of heroism from her youth in the distant land of Qadira. When a village of desert ratfolk is massacred, only Kyra and the paladin Seelah are willing to take up their cause and hunt down the bloodsucking monstrosities responsible. From Pathfinder co-creator James L. Sutter (Pathfinder: Goblins, Death’s Heretic) and artist Kevin Stokes (Pathfinder: Goblins, Secret Origins) comes an adventure of blood, sand, and redemption. Contains a pull-out poster map and official Pathfinder RPG bonus encounter!

PathfinderOrigins02CovBStokKyraa is one of my favorite characters because she is a fantastic and strong. She is fantastic. This issue has Kyra telling her story, which is a very sad one. The story is about a city that is massacred and they must extract their revenge. You would think that this would be something that she would do as a selfish moment but it actually is pretty heroic and has some wonderful moments. My only complaint is that it does move a little slow but when it gets going it is even more fantastic.

James L. Sutter is a great writer and continues to shine during this series. It is a really interesting and fantastic look at heroes and their pasts. Again, my only complaint was that it moved a little slow. I do think that it will have a better pace for future issues.

Kevin Stokes is a really fantastic artist and continues to deliver on the visual food we need. It is quick, sleek, and fun. The attention to detail is spot on and you will love it.

Pathfinder Origins #2 has a couple of flaws but, overall, is pretty great.

  • + A fantastic look at Kyra's past
  • + Visually stunning
  • + Kyra really shows herself
  • - A little slow
