Dark Horse Comics has announced Goblin, a new middle-grade graphic novel adventure by Eric Grissom and Will Perkins. The two previously work together on the science fiction graphic novel Gregory Suicidealso from Dark Horse.

A young goblin named Rikt is orphaned after his home is raided by warriors. Seeking vengeance for the death of his parents, Rikt is on a mission to destroy the culprits. On his journey, he gets helps from unlikely allies and discovers the secret power hidden in the First Tree.

“Time and time again, from folklore to video games, goblins have been seen as an enemy to be overcome, a monster a “hero” must defeat. With GOBLIN, I wanted to tell a story that flipped that idea. Not every monster is a villain and not every person that looks like a hero acts like one. We set out to make the world of GOBLIN a wonderful, mysterious place and I can’t wait for readers to get lost within it.”—Eric Grissom

“Drawing the world of Eric’s story was a genuine blast and I was really inspired by my love of video games. I had so much fun filling in the nooks and crannies and trying to help create a world where adventure is everywhere. Inviting the reader to wonder what lay behind that ridge of mountains or beyond the next tree line.”—Will Perkins

Goblin will arrive at comic book shops on May 26, 2021 and in bookstores June 8, 2021 for $14.99. You can pre-order today on Amazon and at your local comic book shop.
