A fire can keep you warm...or it can consume you.

When Bren Aldric Ermendrud was chosen to attend the Soltryce Academy, everyone knew he would have an important future in service to the Empire. But nobody--least of all Bren himself--could foresee the cruelty he endured, and the ways in which it would break and remake him. Witness the events that transform Bren into the Mighty Nein's Caleb Widogast, and how they'll inform the path he'll take in the future.

One of the best comic books I've read in a good while. It packs so much story in such few pages, and the readers familiar with Caleb's story will find even more detail in it. Every panel has something to tell, you'll spend minutes taking in each page.

Count my heart as broken. The art is very beautiful and the writing gives insight into characters we've known for years and characters we've never met before. It has both frenetic energy and devastating clarity. Highly recommend.

Beautiful and heartbreaking origin of our trash wizard.
I love critical roll and was super excited to see them put out these stories, but after getting it I was extremely disappointed. There was nothing new to the story that we got from the show. It’s just Pretty much what they said but drawn out. I was hoping that it would go more in depth and talk more on the training and relationships that Caleb had, but what was depicted was very little. I honestly feel like this isn’t worth the money.

This was so good! The art is really well done, especially in the more 'important' scenes to Caleb's life. The plot is his backstory, from his acceptance into the Academy to meeting Nott, and it's nice to see smaller details that we didn't get completely while watching Campaign 2! Now someone please give this guy a hug; he could really use one.
