An elf, a human, and a dwarf walk into a forrest and tavern and a dungeon… and what follows is a whole bunch of punchlines. First off, I loved this book. This is the story of a D&D quest, complete with a DM poking his head into the panels to give his advice/ instructions.
Completely self-aware and with fun references, The Adventure Zone tells the tale of three characters who start their day tasked with a simply delivery, but quickly get caught up in swordplay with a mischief of nasty Gerblins. (Don’t know if that’s what you call a group of them, but it sounds right!) The artistry is expressive and connects well with the constant action and jokes. A range of entertaining villains and friendlies make the pages turn quickly. Join the fun and pick this one up soon!
This book is for you, if you have ever:
- Thought people should have to present their character sheet upon meeting you
- Sipped some dank mead
- Wanted a pet dragon so badly that your mom sewed wings on your stuffed elephant
- Broken up with a partner over the number of pips on a side of the die
Highly Recommended, and Greatly anticipating book #2!
Full disclosure: I’ve never listened to The Adventure Zone Podcast… but I just downloaded the first 5 episodes.
