Jo Nita, a co-worker of mine at my new location, has come to know that I love comics and graphic novels, so when she saw that this had come in our delivery, she handed it to me and said, “I think you would like this one.” And she was correct!
Welcome to the Adventure Zone!
SEE! The illustrated exploits of three lovable dummies set loose in a classic fantasy adventure!
READ! Their journey from small-time bodyguards to world-class artifact hunters!
MARVEL! At the sheer metafictional chutzpah of a graphic novel based on a story created in a podcast where three dudes and their dad play a tabletop role playing game in real time!
Join Taako the elf wizard, Merle the dwarf cleric, and Magnus the human warrior for an adventure they are poorly equipped to handle AT BEST, guided (“guided”) by their snarky DM, in a graphic novel that, like the smash-hit podcast it’s based on, will tickle your funny bone, tug your heartstrings, and probably pants you if you give it half a chance.
With endearingly off-kilter storytelling from master goofballs Clint McElroy and the McElroy brothers, and vivid, adorable art by Carey Pietsch, The Adventure Zone: Here There be Gerblins is the comics equivalent of role-playing in your friend’s basement at 2am, eating Cheetos and laughing your ass off as she rolls critical failure after critical failure.
This was a hilarious comic! It is a illustrated version of their D&D campaign and I fricken’ love it! It was hilarious and I loved you could actually see how the characters are the characters and when the players are breaking character. I really have no way to explain this other than is a comic format of the live D&D sessions you see on Twitch. This is so good and if you love comics and D&D, then you should definitely read this comic!
Do you play D&D? Whether you play or not, what character class would/do you play? Comment below and let me know!
