The Next Book in a Line of Graphic Novels Delving in the Backstories of 
The Mighty Nein from Dark Horse and Critical Role

MILWAUKIE, Ore., (March 12, 2021)—The partnership between Dark Horse Comics and Critical Role continues to expand with the latest title from the previously announced Critical Role: The Mighty Nein Origins line: Critical Role: The Mighty Nein Origins – Yasha Nydoorin. The New York Times bestselling author Cecil Castellucci (Soupy Leaves Home, Batgirl) is joined by artist William Kirkby (Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins, Rat Queens), colorist Diana Sousa (Critical Role: The Mighty Nein Origins — Caleb Widogast) and Critical Role letterer alum Ariana Maher (Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins, Star Wars: The High Republic), working with Game Master Matthew Mercer and cast member Ashley Johnson to shed some light on the tumultuous past of the Mighty Nein’s Yasha Nydoorin.


For Yasha, there has always been a storm on the horizon. 


Maybe it formed with her adoption by the Dolorov people in the harsh lands of Xhorhas. Or perhaps when she fell for her first love, Zuala. Or still later, when grief and madness drove her from her village and out into––somewhere else. Maybe, on the other hand, Yasha IS the storm.   


Critical Role: The Mighty Nein Origins – Yasha Nydoorin graphic novel will be available everywhere books are sold September 15, 2021. It is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop.


The Critical Role: The Mighty Nein Origins line is presented in hardcover format and volumes will retail for $17.99 each.
