    This is a great adaptation. I'm still not totally convinced how well these adaptations hold up if you haven't listened to the podcast and don't have these character voices in your head already? Nevertheless: <3 Angus McDonald <3 ...

    Of course this was a delight! Great things all around: lots of little inside jokes for podcast people, a very very good Angus McDonald (the best character?!?), and an extremely good Garfield the Deals Warlock. ...

    Three brothers and their dad started playing D&D and recorded themselves playing it. The podcast, The Adventure Zone, became so insanely popular, that we?re now getting the graphic novel treatment for the eight arcs of their campaign. What a world. Listening to this campaign p...

    Just when you thought the TAZ graphic novels couldn't get any better, hot damn, it's MURDER TRAIN TIME! This is a perfect adaptation of the Rockport story arc from the Adventure Zone: Balance campaign. I love the artwork, I love the various framing conventions, every panel is perfectio...

    The short version of any TAZ Balance review is just "god, I love Taako so much" but I'll try to say a few other things as well ;) This is probably my favorite campaign from Balance, although some of my favorite parts aren't really translated to this graphic novel adaptation. Still, all...

    Pre-release review: Oh, man, I am so stoked for this! I was forced strongly encouraged to read Here There Be Gerblins by a friend, and I fell in love with the graphic novel and have subsequently become addicted to the podcast. Seriously, in the three weeks since I started listening to...

    This graphic novel adaptation continues to be top of the line. If you haven't listened to The Adventure Zone, I highly recommend it because this comic experience will be all the better for it! I love the way Carey Pietsch and the McEl-Boys have collaborated to comb through these arcs, ...

    Another great entry in The Adventure Zone's "Balance" series. It's really amazing getting graphic novel adaptations of this story. It's truly a fantastic tale, filled with interesting and surprising plot twists, fun and deep characters, and tons of varied, wild locales. While I lov...

    I LOVE THE ADVENTURE ZONE. I will also be biased towards these books. I don't even care. It's a brilliant adaptation. And yes, it's an adaptation of the podcast. There are some significant changes in this one. We don't get the centipede fight, or the monster Bureau initiation fight. Th...

    Writing this from the perspective of someone who has heard the podcast; not sure how it works without that. I had some trouble getting through the beginning of this book because I feel like the characters dicking around with the NPCs doesn't work ask well in a visual medium - and that'...

    Tres Horny Boys are back at it again, and I couldn't be happier to be along for the ride. The Adventure Zone stands out as one of the most exciting, clever, hilarious, heart-breaking and brilliant works of fantasy fiction I've encountered and I'm so pleased to announce that this second...

    I?m sure I said this for the first book but as a visual learner, having the graphic novels has added so much to my experience with TAZ. Things I may have missed in the podcast become a lot clearer seeing it on paper, particularly with the train puzzle. The graphic novels are a perfec...

    This arc was one of my top 5 from the campaign. I didn't remember it so well but all their shenanigans around Jenkins put me right back on track. I just love the McElroys and all of their chaotic energy. I'm really looking forward to get the whole campaign captured in these amazing...

    This might be a bit of a biased review. I'm a huge fan of the Adventure Zone and borderline obsessed with the McElroys in general. There was no way I wasn't going to love this, especially after the fantastic first volume. Murder on the Rockport Limited improves on the first volume in a...

    While "Here There Be Gerblins" was more of a copy+paste of the original Podcast, "Murder on the Rockport Limited" did a flawless job of adapting the best parts of the podcast while mindfully trimming and adding, to make the story well-rounded and well paced. A wonderful adaptation and ...

    IT'S a real surprise that a podcast has been adapted into such a uniquely exciting graphic novel. The art is wonderful- bright, colourful and fun whilst consistently being clear about what's happening, particularly in combat. The characters are wonderful and Griffin's interjections...

    Another stellar adaptation of my favorite podcast! I?m so glad that the McElroys got to continue these graphic novels because as they pull away from the actual copywrited DnD content and go into Griffin?s original arcs that there is going to be so much more room to play! This one l...

    Stunningly imaginative. Pietsch's designs and Clint's narrative expertise combine to make a POWERFUL expansion on the TAZ universe you know and love. How she manages to create characters that are the perfect fit for the ones we have in our heads I'll never know! And I'm especially exci...

    CAAARRRREEEEYYY!!!! CAREY PIETSCH CONTINUES TO BE BEYOND AMAZING AT ART. FACIAL EXPRESSIONS, CHARACTER DESIGN, ENVIRONMENTS, TINY DETAILS ON BACKGROUNDS, TINY DETAILS ON PAPER/BOOKS, TINY DETAILS ON EVERYTHING. Listen, if you read Gerblins, you know what to expect from Rockport...

    Another charming retelling of this story arc from TAZ podcast-- I so enjoyed revisiting this particular entry, and especially enjoyed seeing Angus & Jenkins brought to life. I also love that they put fan art in the back as a bonus. Recommended as a funny fantasy graphic novel for f...

    On the book tour for Gerblins, they all praised Carey's design for Graham (The Juicy Wizard). And yeah, I bet this book'll be good. But I'm 100%, all in, totally on board, completely infatuated, in this for the Juicy Wizard. ...

    7/23/19 I went through the book once, gonna re-read it before giving it a thorough review, but in short it holds up better than the first volume. No contest. -------------------- 12/4/18 There's a preview of this good child on the website and I'm already in love. Look at this jovia...

    A lot of the spark and fun is lost in graphic novel format, since much of the humour of the show comes from improvisation & the sense of immediacy you get when the Horny Boys are experiencing their adventures in real time. If I had read this book with no context, I don't think I wo...
