Yesterday we brought you the news of a brand new Mass Effect comic, and today we’re doing much the same — but with BioWare’s other blockbuster RPG franchise, Dragon Age.

In the latest in a long series of collaborations, Dark Horse Comics will be publishing Dragon Age: Knight Errant, a five-issue series about the elven thief Vaea, who arrives in Kirkwall just in time for the appointment of the beleaguered city’s latest Viscount — dwarven adventurer, professional second son and bestselling author, Varric Tethras.

Dark Horse has given Polygon a sneak peek of the comic’s first cover, interior art, and story. Written by Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir, with art by Fernando Heinz Furukawa and covers by Sachin Teng, Knight Errant’s first issue will hit shelves on May 10, 2017. Teng also did cover art for Dark Horse’s last Dragon Age series, Dragon Age: Magekiller.

Here’s the official summary of Dragon Age: Knight Errant:

BioWare’s bestselling fantasy franchise lives on in these canonical comics from Dark Horse!

Elven squire Vaea and her knight arrive in Kirkwall for Varric Tethras’ appointment as Viscount. A talented thief, Vaea takes on an easy job . . . but when she chooses to change the terms of the deal mid-heist, she is entangled in a dangerous mission that is surely above her pay grade.
