Community Spotlight: Les Revenants Fanzine, a 100 page showcase of horror (preorders open until Sept 24)

Being as the season of spooks is upon us, it is fitting that today, we showcase the Les Revenants fanzine. While the Fire Emblem Heroes franchise tends to celebrate this time of year with special summonable units and a few entertaining one-liners, this time, an artist collective came together to put out an issue highlighting the more…somber and scary side of Fire Emblem (Awakening and Fates specifically).

Preorders for this are open for one week from today, and you can hop onto their web site to take a look at anything that might interest you from this batch. If you’d like to track their activity or support them on social media, definitely consider checking out their Twitter.

You can score a PDF copy of the 100 page zine for $15, or upgrade to various other bundles up to $60, that depending on the package, could include a hard copy of the book, acrylic or wooden charms, bookmarks, stickers, and even tarot cards). There’s a lot to consider here, especially if you’re a fan of a horror-focused theme, which is definitely something rare in the fanart project community.

To compliment this fanzine, Rena Strober (voice of Azura from Fire Emblem Fates and her other appearances) is going to sign a preordered zine copy and Azura tarot card as part of their raffle. If you’d like to take advantage of this, then you have until 11:59 pm on Saturday, September 20. She’s been involved in many appearances and collaborations, both here on Serenes Forest and through other endeavors, and she’s a wonderful person. Take a look here for the rules on the chance to win this signed copy; I recommend taking advantage of this chance if you can!

Heroes: Additions arrive from Abyss and Múspell on Sept 17

I certainly wasn’t expecting this in the latest Heroes banner, but I’m definitely ok with the surprise, in the Abyss & Múspell banner, featuring Yuri, Constance and Hapi from the Fire Emblem Three Houses DLC, as well as the next Heroes OC in Múspell.

There are a handful of variant skills in the batch, and a heck of a lot of Canto amongst the arrivals from Abyss. New skills include Atk/Res Catch 4, A/S Far Trace 3, AR-Def/Res 4, and probably the most notable for scorekeepers in the arena, C Duel Infantry 4.

Additionally, Balthus: King of Grappling, a Green Axe Infantry (and showing off how good of a grappler he is by using an Axe…), will be an upcoming unit available as a 3* or 4* in the summoning pool. Furthermore, Aelfric: Custodian Monk, will be the next Grand Hero Battle unit, which can be earned in his respective Grand Hero Battle available on Sept 17. You can also spark a unit after 40 summons, and finally, there will be a Celestial Stone also available after 40 summons.

The Abyss & Múspell banner will kick off on September 17 at 12a PT.
