Path of Exile’s first comic now available online
The first issue of Path of Exile: The Karui Way is now available online as a digital download.
Path of Exile: The Karui Way is a four-issue comic which aims to detail the backstory for an upcoming expansion, due in August. You can grab the first issue as a digital download for $4 – in ePub, Mobi, PDF, or CBZ format – or you can pick up the Digital Comic Bundle, which contains both the comic and the Lioneye and Kaom masks. That, however, will cost you $20.
If you’re not keen on any of those formats, then I should point out three things. First, all four issues of the comic will be collected and released as a printed graphic novel in early 2015. Second, the digital comic will also be available on Dark Horse Digital, Amazon, and Dynamite Entertainment’s storefront. Third, if I remember rightly CBZ format is just a renamed zip file, so you can always just get it in that format and extract the images manually.
The digital issues are due roughly once a month. Path of Exile itself is a free-to-play ARPG, and if you fancy giving it a go then you can do so by signing up on the official site.
