Welcome to the Adventure Zone!
SEE! The illustrated exploits of three lovable dummies set loose in a classic fantasy adventure!
READ! Their journey from small-time bodyguards to world-class artifact hunters!
MARVEL! At the sheer metafictional chutzpah of a graphic novel based on a story created in a podcast where three dudes and their dad play a tabletop role playing game in real time!
Join Taako the elf wizard, Merle the dwarf cleric, and Magnus the human warrior for an adventure they are poorly equipped to handle AT BEST, guided ("guided") by their snarky DM, in a graphic novel that, like the smash-hit podcast it's based on, will tickle your funny bone, tug your heartstrings, and probably pants you if you give it half a chance. With storytelling from master goofballs Clint McElroy and the McElroy brothers, and vivid, adorable art by Carey Pietsch.
“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.” — John Hodgman, Vacationland
“Gorgeous art—the characters come to life! I am so happy that this graphic novel is a thing that exists in the world.” — Hank Green, Crash Course , The Lizzie Bennet Diaries
“Clint, Griffin, Justin, and Travis McElroy team up with artist Carey Pietsch to adapt the show’s first quest in The Adventure Zone: Here There Be Gerblins, and Pietsch’s rich animated art style imbues their characters with life, capturing the distinct personalities that were created through voice on the podcast.” –A.V. Club
“Pietsch’s art adds depth to the page at every turn, bringing this world to life in a really exciting way and also giving the characters a full range of expression that almost makes you forget you are reading.” –The Mary Sue
