Fans of The Assassin’s Apprentice series are in luck, as Dark Horse Comics announced The Assassin’s Apprentice II by writer Jody Houser and artist Ryan Kelly.
Spring comes to the Six Duchies, and with it, the fearsome menace of the Red-Ship Raiders. As the danger creeps ever closer to Buckkeep, Fitz is given his first true mission from Chade, to infiltrate the estate of a nobleman and look for any signs of treason. But an assassin’s job is far from simple, and the fate of the realm may depend on if Fitz can take a life, or spare one instead.
“I have really enjoyed working with Dark Horse to bring Fitz’s story to this medium,” said author Robin Hobb in a press release. “I’ve been very impressed with their integrity and respect for the original material.”
The Assassin’s Apprentice II #1 (of 6) arrives in stores on December 13, 2023.
