See where Tribes of Kai began with Pridelands. This story was written by Lance and painted by Daren in 1998, then published in Frank Frazetta: Fantasy Illustrated Magazine #4 and #5. We have rescanned these painted pages direct from the original art. This new 48-page collection showcases the original art just as if you were viewing them in person--on the art boards without the text. A 16 page section includes the story behind Pridelands and includes bonus art and the original script
