Title: My 'new' find for you
Post by: Jimmy T on December 22, 2010, 05:26:18 PM
<perry>Burned out on the Big two comics<perry>?

I invite you<perry> to try DUNGEONS & DRAGONS.

Its 2 issues in, written by John Rogers (creater/writer/director of LEVERAGE and Blue Beetle's awesome first 24 issues), and drawn by Andrea DiVito, it holds the fun of actual roleplaying (meaning you harass the crap out of all your friends' actions and answer all problems with sarcasm).

I bought #1 on a random dare to see if a D&D book could be cool, and I say they AYE.

Yep, I read it.
Decent start, though I would still prefer a little "harsher" world. Looks too clean  ;D
I can find DiVito's art nondescript at times. Not bad, at all, just ... kinda boring.

Script wise ... again ... decent.

Still reading for the time being, however.

Well, that's something then!  8)

Divito's art is not brilliant here, but hey, he certianly doesn't have the team behind him like he did with BRATH at Crossgen (how 'bout DAT old plug?). But the book makes me smile, so I'm all in.

Oh yeah, keeps me off the "capes", and for now, that is good.
 ;D

(Of course, I forgot about Brath ... yet another title I have to track down now while I am in my Crossgen fervor ... damn it, Jimbo)

I picked up issue 0, which is selling for a dollar.  Mostly a preview comic of the Dungeons & Dragons series and upcoming Dark Sun series.

Like you guys mentioned, the art looks very good, but not Di Vito's most outstanding work.

Typical fantasy hero group stuff with all the archetypes you'd expect.  Again, nothing spectacular, but there's enough fun and humor to it I'll check out the trade.

The Dark Sun preview was a bit harder to follow.  I dug the artwork just fine, but the story and character motivations were trickier to understand.  I really got the sense that some changes were made last minute that messed with the overall story.

This sounds pretty cool.  I've been in the mood for something different.
