History[edit | edit source]
In 1989, DC Comics began publishing the Forgotten Realms comic series, written by Jeff Grubb. Each issue contained twenty-six pages, illustrated primarily by Rags Morales and Dave Simons. The 19 issues produced by Morales were his first professional works. Tom Raney illustrated issues #17 and #20. Elliot S. Maggin served as an editor for DC from 1989 to 1991 and oversaw the licensed TSR, Inc. titles, including Forgotten Realms. Twenty-five issues were published in total, with the last being released in 1991.
Kim Yale served as an editor for DC from 1991–1993 and oversaw their licensed titles. Grubb wrote all 25 issues. An anthologie, Annual: Waterdhavian Nights, illustrated by various artists, was released in 1990.
