Action Lab Entertainment has announced an interesting new series that is spins as “1980s sword and sorcery fantasy/thriller set in a medieval themed Las Vegas Casino.”
“When Gareth Thompson, a hard accented Southerner, Vietnam veteran and single father accepts a security job at the Archon he soon discovers all his orc, elf and dragon coworkers are not people in costumes but actual creatures of myth and legend,” said series creator John Perez. “It’s a world where dwarves are bartenders, gnomes are valets, elves are accountants, dragons are Wall Street hustlers and everyone is looking for a slice of the American dream.”
Art for the series is being done by Marco Maccagni, which Perez describes as brilliant and perfect for the series.
The big bonus for this series? Each issue contains an actual tabletop gaming campaign.
“The supplemental material in the back is for obsessives, like myself. It gives additional info on the world, albeit its written under the guise of a D&D dragons manual meant for kids, but it’s actually doublespeak.”
Archon: Battle of the Dragon is available for pre-order now with an expected September release.
