Books of Lore
is a sword-and-sorcery, fantasy-adventure comic book series which
began in 1997 as an anthology series. Each of the first two issues—Special
Editions #1 and #2—featured three self-contained
short stories (which is to say that each story had a beginning and
an ending and were independent of each other). Each short story was
also illustrated by a different artist, ranging from established
comic book creators such as Marvel and DC Comics veteran Scott
Kolins and independent fan-favorite Dark One, to talented
newcomers such as Bryan Heyboer and Jeff Reitz.
In November 1998, the
anthology-style format was abandoned in favor of the more traditional
format of a mini-series. The first mini-series, a five-issue story
arc entitled Books of Lore: The Kaynin Gambit, introduced
two half-elf characters—Gev and Gerrin—traveling in search of adventure.
Gev and Gerrin part company at the end of the prelude issue and the
rest of the series continues by following Gev to the city of Kaynin
where he becomes embroiled in a merchant's war over control of the
realm's most lucrative trade routes while struggling to find his missing
half-sister, a thief named Jess.
