Punishment of the Dice Gods is a cutting yet affectionate comic based on the tabletop wargaming world. A lush printed edition of the collected strips of ninjabread.co.uk , it has two aspects to it - on the one hand it follows two enthusiasts as they negotiate the wargaming world, on the other it delves into the universe that their miniatures inhabit. In addition, it has five bonus strips included that do not appear on the website (an extra-special treat) and several full colour pages showcasing the author's skill with a pen and somewhat fevered imagination. Written by a guy with both a deep love and knowledge of the hobby but also the ability to poke fun at its eccentricities and lore. Recommended for any wargamers looking for an irreverant, sideways and humorous dissection of their interest and the strange creatures that dwell there (some human, some not). --Annie Butcher
