I'm not much of a comic book or manga fan. But the Order of the Stick is different, different, different! I must admit that a reader who has never played D&D might not catch every innuendo, but there are enough laughs for even the most uninitiated. The jokes and twists are hilarious and yet, with each comic, the story moves forward.
Origin of the PCs tells how the player characters (PC's) got their start and formed the infamous Order of the Stick. As Burlew's online strip starts with the party already together, it was fun to go back in time and see the characters before they knew each other. After all, how did a psychotic halfling, dwarven cleric, bumbling bard, androgynous mage, and opportunistic rogue all team up with a college-grad fighter on quest to avenge his father's death? Overall, a very fun read with plenty of chuckles. Now, I'm looking forward to 'Start of Darkness' for a similar look at the 'origin of the NPCs'. How did Xykon become a litch? What is the creature in the darkness? And how long will it take for SOD to reach Amazon, so we can order it here?

It felt a little short for what I was expecting, but then again, it is a graphic novel and an $8 one at that.
It was fun to see all the characters and what they were doing before they joined up and why they all decided to go.

Overall if you like, OOTS, get this book, it's well worth the price. If you don't, then this book isn't going to change your mind. If you've never heard of OOTS, go here: http://www.giantitp.com/Comics.html

It's a great prequel and I've read it before. I bought it for my best friend's birthday after I got him into the comics. I think he'll love it!

An interesting comic, with interesting shifts from silly comedy to gripping drama and back again.

This book is a very interesting journey into the backstory of the protagonists of the Order of the Stick. I do wish it was a bit longer. It was interesting to see OOTS in a more comic book-like format.

Ireally do like how the PCs are shown. It just fits perfectly and their character, motivation and personalities are shown nicely.
I can recomend this comic to everyone who already likes the webcomic.

Extremely well written and funny references to the game. I laugh the whole day when I read it, and I am looking forward to buy the other volumes.

Black and white, but still the best. Worth the price for any RPG/D&D fun. Best if you read this after finishing Volume 1+ (you're up for a few amusing references).

If you are a fan of the series you will enjoy seeing how the group got together but not a must read.
