The Adventure Zone

The #1 New York Times bestselling graphic novel series based on the smash-hit podcast of a father and his three sons playing Dungeons & Dragons in real time, The Adventure Zone follows the exploits of three adventurers across a fantasy realm.

With Clint McElroy’s Dungeon Master “guiding” his sons Griffin, Justin, and Travis in their characters of Taako the elf wizard, Merle the dwarf cleric, and Magnus the human warrior, their adventures quickly become snarky and hilarious misadventures.

“The warped fantasy lives of McElroy Sons and Dad are as addictively adorable and unstoppably hilarious as they are on their podcast (a popular mind comic); but somehow Carey Pietsch’s gorgeous and playful art makes this deep dive into their beautiful brains even richer, weirder, and more mandatory. This is a critical hit.”—New York Times bestselling author John Hodgman (on The Adventure Zone: Here There Be Gerblins)
