The ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ style of story was very popular when I was growing up, and it is a concept that has regained popularity lately. However, there have been very few comics that have adopted this premise, for reasons I’m not entirely sure of. “Relic of the Dragon” is a new IDW graphic novel where that exact concept is in play. Mixed with a fantasy setting, an all-ages style, and beautiful art by Miguel Ángel García, the book is one of the more interactive comics on shelves anywhere. We’ve got an exclusive preview of the boo, which hits shelves early next month.

The classic you-choose-the-story format jumps to comics with this dungeon-crawling fantasy adventure for young readers! Urik the dwarf will need help from his trusty spirit guide if he’s to find the mysterious Dragon Relic, a quest assigned to him by the gods. There’s just one little problem: that spirit guide is you. New dangers and new decisions loom on every page. Help Urik overcome deadly demons, lying fairies, and beautiful yet treacherous unicorns. Will he return home a glorious champion, or fall in a hole? Combining the setting and decision-making of classic sword-and-sorcery RPGs with the captivating storytelling and art of comics, Relic of the Dragon is the adventure of a lifetime.
