The Gathering is the first issue of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons comics series set in the Forgotten Realms and published by DC Comics. It was written by Michael Fleisher and Jan Duursema, drawn by Duursema, and edited by Barbara Kesel. It introduced the heroes of the series: Cybriana of Shadowdale, Onyx the Invincible, Timoth Eyesbright, and Vajra Valmeyjar, as well as Priam Agrivar, who would later be a hero of the related Forgotten Realms comics series.

SynopsisEdit

An ancient evil rises and once again threatens the Realms. Only a motley band of adventures can stop it now. A surly dwarf warrior and his benevolent centaur companion, a gladiator who survived the Manshaka Arena of Blood, a fallen paladin, and a timid half-elf must somehow find a way to work together if the Realms are going to survive the coming darkness.
