BioWare has joined forces with Gabe&Tycho, the creative artists of the popular Penny Arcade web comic ( www.penny-arcade.com) to create a new 8-part web comic based on BioWare’s upcoming epic, dark fantasy Dragon Age: Origins.

The Dragon Age: Origins web comic features an all-new Penny Arcade treatment of a dangerous encounter between a party of mage-hunting Templar knights, the reviled“Witch of the Wilds” Flemeth and her deadly, magic-wielding daughter Morrigan. Featuring its own original storyline, this new Penny Arcade comic will give readers a dark introduction to the brutal world of Dragon Age: Origins.

Fans can view the first page of the series today at www.dragonage.com with a new page being revealed every week. Fans will also see an exclusive Q&A with Penny Arcade on the site as they share some of their impressions and favorite moments of Dragon Age: Origins.
