Welcome to the high fantasy world of Tangea! A land where wizards and warriors battle
dragons in dark dank dungeons! Where thieves pillage ancient ruins and priests answer the audible words of their great gods!
Welcome to Chicago, Illinois! Where the magical items from Tangea are being traded on the black market and are messing everything up.
Now, a group of Tangea adventurers must go undercover in our modern world to stop artifacts and monsters from falling into the wrong hands. But how will they fare in a world without wizards and warriors? A world without heroes?
From Tim Seeley (DARK RED, BRILLIANT TRASH) and Freddie E. Williams II (HeMan/Thundercats, Batman/
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) comes BEQUEST, a real-world fantasy tale.
Each issue of BEQUEST has 24 pages of story and art and cardboard stock covers!
