5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Fun 15 Jan 2012
By Daniel Masucci - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
For any fans of fast paced action and dialogue, compelling arch type characters that do the unexpected, and flat out fantasy, this book is for you. I bought the previous hardcover volume and the quality is outstanding. The art is visually appealing and the writing is sharp. You don't have to be a D&D fan to love this book, but if you are, you should love it all the more. The book pays homage to its origins without being restricted by it.

I highly recommend this volume. I'm already looking forward to volume 3!

4.0 out of 5 stars An introduction to Classic D&D 16 Mar 2012
By Sean L. Moy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this as a graphic novel more than when it was as a comic, as the included artwork between chapters, the few extra variants and sketches of covers was great to see.

The story is good, not fantastic, mind-bending or incredible but good. Too often it is called cliche' but considering how every story can be similar in many ways, it does not always make it cliche'd. I feel that the subtlety of racial variants in the D&D world could be better explained through the dialogue. Dwarves are known to be gruff, foul mouthed, hearty non-charismatic beings but we are given a dwarven paladin, to oppose all those sterotypes. That is fun and inventive but the other NPCs and PC don't seem to really care, except that they manage to get by a fight with a Dryad. Barely a thanks or a "where did you learn about poetry" something that would make them have a little more depth. There are interesting characters here but they get a little lost in the whole story and that dropped it at one star because of it.

The presentation and materials used are great! Having a hardbound book, as opposed to a soft covered graphic novel, gives it a more professional look and feel. Colors and artwork were well done and I do see some inconsistencies or rather laziness in some parts, where detail is not needed but should be included. The tavern scene, only the main characters and a few details of the bar stand out or are well done, everything else seems like a mere sketch in comparison. NOW this is excellent if used as a style for certain scenes or blocks of scenes but the artists do not consistently use it to make it a style.

Cost...totally depends on what you paid, if anything (as a gift) but I enjoyed it at what I paid, which was close to the MSRP.

Extras: As mentioned before, the art work was great, sketches in between and at the end of each comic, was great. I really enjoyed the adventure that was included which I am unsure was in the comics or not. It has full details on how to use the areas and people presented in the Feywild along with full stat blocks at the end, separate from the adventure itself. Short and adjustable, so DMs can have fun with it, populate it with other creatures to up the difficulty. All in all, a great effort in design, presentation and execution.

To introduce someone new or perhaps a younger audience, it does its job. As an old school D&D player, (almost 40) I liked it and have shown it to friends who do and do not play. I think I would enjoy this over its comic iteration, that is not to say to skip the comic version.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, I just want more. 7 July 2014

It's just a shame that there aren't more dungeons and dragon's books with this much humor I really like it and I just can't read just one.
4.0 out of 5 stars You stumble across a review, roll for appreciation! 6 July 2014
By Dark Harden - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It's not very surprising that a world in which the main character is simultaneously you and anything you want to be, there doesn't exist characters for us to immediately identify with. Sure you have Drizzt, and he's great, really great actually- go read his stories- but D&D was bred on the ilk of now-genre-defining archetypes. Thats the strength and weakness of this D&D series, its generic in a very good way. It's remembering how good plain white bread tastes after walking through aisles of multi-grain this, pumperknickeralberry that, bread options that seem to never end. Like sandwiches, comics will always be about what goes on in between those frames of beautiful artwork and boxed dialog (the frames are the bread in this analogy).
