Publisher Description

Welcome to The Adventure Zone! If your heart sings for Critical Role and Dimension 20, you’ll want to dive right into this gorgeous graphic novel adaptation of the trailblazing D&D podcast, which illustrates exploits of three lovable dummies on their journey from small-time bodyguards to world-class artifact hunters!

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 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 failures and dies to a slime

    Good its the best

    I’m 8 so I really like it nice swear words!

    Delta and Theta ,

    Great for anyone 10 and up!

    I am a huge fan of the podcast (The Adventure Zone) and this is a great adaptation. There are changes of course, but the changes fit the medium very well.

    For anyone who isn’t into the podcast, and just seeing this in their recommendations, I would strongly suggest giving this a shot, if you like comics with dramatics but without a ton of grit.

    If the series continues (which I think it will, petals to the metal is already in the works at the moment) then this is a great series for anyone. It’s going to get heavy, but in a way that’s great for the heart.

    Please, at least give it a chance. Carey’s artwork and Clint, Griffin, Justin, and Travis’s storytelling and choices are a wonderful wonderful combination.

    C.M.Sweatt ,

    Loved it so much.

    It’s an awesome, funny story, I’ll definitely read it again. If you like fantasy with lots of wit and shenanigans, you’ll probably love this book.
