This is D&D adventure as it should be. Of course, that means it *IS* D&D, so don't look for terribly original material here. There's dwarves, elves, etc, but that's the point, isn't it? Though Rogers does inject some cool originality into the mix, giving the characters lots of personality and plenty of Whedon-esque dialogue and banter throughout. I like the leader's Scarecrow-like quality of coming up with plans despite being supposedly short on brains (and that's a running gag, how his plans are all bad but they always follow them anyway); the dwarven love poet; and the thief who really is a selfish, greed little woman. The only main character I have some trouble with is the demi-demonic sorceress-warlock: for being a spellcaster she sure comes up as useless to me (though if you've played D&D, maybe that is fitting). Tisha seems to primarily be the comic's token sex appeal and little else (until the very end where she kinda saves them all).
Bonus material includes a cool preface from the author and lots of 4th edition stats and adventures for players at home to put to work. (If you like your D&D to be WoW flavored, which I don't. Seems to me Wizards of the Coast sold their souls to compete with World of Warcraft, but that's a bit off topic...)
Overall, this hefty tome is great fun and a visual treat!
While this was something put out in the 4e era, and certainly has some 4e sensibilities in the characters and monsters, this is just a good, fun to read, D&D comic. No 4e knowledge or appreciation is needed. I wasn't a fan of 4e at all, but for me that simply didn't matter when reading this comic. It was just that good.
