We’re almost to the finish line with Vol. 3 of Vox Machina Origins. Previously, in Issue #3 our bands of heroes were about to fight an Ice Dragon! But, the issues ends as the fight was about to begin. Thankfully, Issue #4 picks up where we left off.


For those who haven’t had a chance to catch up, here is a quick recap to help get ready for this issue. Previously, our heroes got to enjoy Winter’s Crest in Westrunn. However, celebrations are cut short as an unknown creature comes into the city via a gem portal. Seemingly, with the help of The Realmseer releasing her into Westrunn. This attack results in a lot of people (including Vax) frozen by the mystery assailant.

Our heroes jump into the portal where the monster came from and now it’s a race against time to find the creature, kill her, and save everyone. However, this creature is no ordinary monster. As our heroes find this monster, she reveals her true form as an Ice Dragon!


This Dragon battle is pretty epic. During the entire fight, there isn’t a clear winner! But, with some luck and cunning ingenuity, our heroes are able to beat the dragon. (Don’t worry, I won’t reveal how). After defeating the Ice Dragon, our heroes find the gem that they have been looking for. Then, as soon as Vex touches the gem, a portal opens and our heroes magically return to Westrunn.

Once back home, everyone (including Vax), is no longer frozen. But now, the Realmseer is accused of working with the Rimelord. Yeah, I know. It’s a lot. Luckily, our heroes vow to find out the truth, and that is where issue #4 ends.

(End Of Minor Spoilers)

So, it seems like our heroes will set off on an interesting journey in both Issue #5 and Issue #6. And, very possibly, one of our heroes may die in a fight, but we’ll have to wait and see.

We still do not have a release date for the last 2 issues, but you can get your copy of Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins Issue #4 from Dark Horse Comics now. And make sure to come back to THS for all your pop culture needs!
