Borderlands returns to comic books with The Fall of Fyrestone

Following up on IDW’s Borderlands mini-series event, Borderlands: Origins, the publisher is bringing Brick, Lilith, Roland, and Mordechai back to Pandora.

“Working on Borderlands: Origins was, without
a doubt, one of my most fun experiences as an editor at IDW,” said editor Tom Waltz. “All the insane excitement of the mega-popular video game—not to mention its patented snarky humor—were brought to bear in that series, and with our same dynamic creative team on board for The Fall of Fyrestone, I guarantee you we’ll be turning up the dial way past eleven this time around!”

Although the cast is the same as the first comic and game in the series, you can expect an all-new story that centers on a new threat to one of Pandora’s cities that IDW says will “take everything they have to overcome”.

Also returning for this new series is the creative team of Mikey Neumann and Augustin Padilla. Borderlands: Origins was a smash for IDW, so it’s no surprise that the pair were asked to return for the ‘sequel’. And according to Neumann, he wouldn’t have it any other way.

“Since we finished up Origins, I’ve been waiting for the opportunity to continue onward in the story now that the Vault Hunters have met up on the bus,” says Neuman. “No, seriously. I’ve been waiting outside of Tom Waltz’s house since we shipped the last issue. My hair has birds in it and I’ve been forced to eat them for nourishment. Tom doesn’t look at me the same way anymore, but I know he’s just as excited to be back (and also chuffed that I’m off his lawn).”

Look for Borderlands: The Fall of Fyrestone to crash headlong into comic shops next month.
