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 is an amazing rendition of the McElroy (tm) (tm) (tm) brand of podcast The Adventure Zone. Absolutely amazing. The story is easy to follow yet complex enough that when you read the book after listening to the podcast you notice little Easter eggs or things in the background that elude to future chapters.
Carey Peitch’s art style and quality give the novel even more life.
All in all, definitely a good read. But I would suggest reading it after listening to the podcast for maximum enjoyment.
Worth it for that last panel
Fans of the show will love this. I feel like this could very well be a way to introduce TAZcast to friends without asking them to listen to hundreds of hours of podcasts.
The name changes from the first session using WOTC published content were dissapointing but understandable, but I am pretty dissapointed they wrote out the orc child and the slavers as I think that made the fall of bogard/gundrin far more poignant and put more of the responsibility on the hands of the hero’s. But it’s still a great read.
oh it’s SO good
it’s everything I wanted and more!
