This post is brought to you by Jim Zub. I received Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides for review. As always, the opinions are my own.
Dungeons & Dragons: Infernal Tides is this year’s mini-series from IDW Publishing. Inspired by the new D&D adventure Descent into Avernus, this comic was written by Jim Zub, drawn by Max Dunbar, colored by Sebastian Cheng, and lettered by Neil Uyetake. These names are among the best in the business, so I had high expectations coming into this series. The book hits shelves on December 11th, but I just couldn’t wait any longer! Let’s take a look into this book and see if those expectations have been met. [Read more…]
Eberron is a setting that has always been a favorite of fans made by fans. From its inception by Keith Baker as part of the Fantasy Setting Search in 2002, to the recent release of Eberron: Rising from the Last War, this setting has a special place in the hearts of many fans.It’s a wonder that Wizards took this long to bring the most popular setting to their most popular edition, but here we are. Was the wait worth it? I’ll leave that for you to decide. For now let’s look at what this new book offers and share some of my first thoughts about it.
The union of Rick and Morty with Dungeons and Dragons is a surreal one. If you had asked me before what franchises would be a good pair with D&D, I would’ve given you the same answer many others would’ve. Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, even the Dark Crystal would’ve been my guesses before this. But two graphic novels and a starter set later and here we are. I did have some worries about this mashup. Sure, the books were entertaining, but for a story to translate well into an adventure takes a bit of work. So my question going into this is does Rick and Morty Vs. Dungeons and Dragons work? Is it enjoyable for fans of both sides? Does the adventure serve as a great introduction to D&D? Let’s dive in and find out how well Rick and Morty Vs. Dungeons fares.
