John Kovalic's Dork Tower has been one of my favorite comic books for some time now. He has managed to take Characters that could have easily been stupid and cliched and turned them into real people with real emotions and problems that any of us can relate to. Even the goofiest character in the book, Igor, is shown to have uncommon courage and compassion when called for, and an unwavering loyalty to his friends that some of us are never even lucky enough to find in the real world.
This volume, like "Livin' La Vida Dorka" (volume 4) takes a break from the regular Dork Tower storyline to present "Understanding Gamers," the brilliant one-issue special where Kovalic explained the mindset of those who live to game. It connects to even a non-gaming reader and shows that gamers aren't quite the freaks they get portrayed as, especially in comparison to even some "normal" folks. The rest of the book is full of other strips and specials, some that even a regular visitor of Kovalic's website such as myself may not have seen before.
There is a little duplication from previous volumes with some of the "Lord of the Rings" strips, but as Kovalic himself explains, that's because he reprinted the "Lord of the Rings" Dork Tower special in its entirety here in this volume.
You don't need to have read the previous Dork Tower volumes to read this one, but you're cheating yourself if you don't. This is one of the funniest comic books on the stands today.

I love Dork Tower, it's my favorite comic strip HANDS DOWN. That said, and I don't want to make this review sound like a downer, but it did not continue the story of Gilly and Matt, it had too many strips that were recycled from the first three books, and ultimately felt like a bit of a let down. That said, John Kovalick still has some great strips in here but for the amount of repeated material I wish that I had gone ahead and bought books VI and VII.

I was very happy when this new Dork Tower collection came out in paperback. I was not as happy after reading it. Sure, it has the usual cast of characters and the same witty style as the others. Certainly the jokes and stories are as good in the other volumes.
In fact, some of the stories and jokes ARE in the other volumes. A large section of this book reprints the Lord of The Rings stories from an earlier volume. One stip is even duplicated from this volume! That's right, one of the strips is included twice! It is almost as if the author is succumbing to his own jokes about variant covers.
The new material was quite good but there just wasn't enough of it. I especially like the opening section that tries to explain what gaming is all about.
