The McElroy family produces a popular D&D themed podcast which was serialized into this full colour graphic novel. The art is very well done, but you can expect plenty of juvenile humour wrapped around a paper thin plot.

It DESERVES a 6 star!

Entertaining but I bet I would have loved it more had I been a fan of the podcast it came from. If you love D&D, you'll enjoy this.

For lovers of Dungeons and Dragons, as well as D&D-uninitiated fantasy enthusiasts who prefer a heavy-handed amount of absurdity and pop culture references. This romp of three unlikely heroes (are they really heroes, though?) is derived from a podcast of the same name, and is sure to please fans of the McElroy family and their goofy sense of humor.

Hilarious! What a fun story and characters!

As a fan of the Adventure Zone podcast and Dungeons & Dragons, I was excited to see this adaptation of their first campaign arc. The illustrations are done in such a loving manner, and they bring to life all of the fun and excitement I had listening to the McElroy's for the first time all over again. I was so touched by the comic and seeing all of the characters I had been picturing in my head arrayed before me, that I wanted to immediately re-listen to those early episodes. It is my sincere hope that they continue to produce the remaining arcs, so I can enjoy ever single chapter for years to come.

A hilarious, action-packed graphic novel that will have you laughing out loud and shaking your head. Great, eye-catching graphics and a must read for fans of Dungeons & Dragons!

If you play D&D or have played this a fun rendition of it. Can't wait to read the 2nd book.

The Adventure Zone is a longtime favorite podcast of mine. The characters- Merle, Magnus, and Taako- interact beautifully, and the narrative is both touching and action-packed. It consists of 3 brothers and their dad playing Dungeons & Dragons, which sounds unconventional and rules-laden, but actually flows nicely- it got me into D&D. I was delighted to hear that they were releasing a graphic novel. Readers should be aware that it contains crude sexual humor and profanity, but the book is a great jumping-off point for the podcast.
