The Adventure Zone: Here There Be Gerblins
The Adventure Zone: Here There Be Gerblins | Clint McElroy, Griffin McElroy, Justin McElroy, Travis McElroy, Carey Pietsch
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 endearingly off-kilter storytelling from master goofballs Clint McElroy and the McElroy brothers, and vivid, adorable art by Carey Pietsch, The Adventure Zone: Here There be Gerblins is the comics equivalent of role-playing in your friend's basement at 2am, eating Cheetos and laughing your ass off as she rolls critical failure after critical failure.

I can see how this would be fun, it just isn‘t working for me. I‘ve never played D&D myself, but have had friends who play and I thought it would be enough, but not quite. I‘ve also never heard the podcast (or any podcast, actually). So I‘m not bashing this at all, just not to my taste.

Cheshirecat913 My husband loves this podcast (and D&D), so I read the book to humor him . I can see how it works as a podcast, but the book was eh. 1w
ravenlee @Cheshirecat913 I think it‘s too much of an in-joke for people who do follow the podcast, maybe. It wasn‘t really intended to be read on its own. 1w

Lunch break reading. 😋
It has been a year now since I switched to a job that I can sneak some reading in on and it is awesome.

My husband adores the Adventure Zone podcast and when we saw this in the library he wanted me to try it out. It is good....I can see where the podcast would be better because of all the banter that they cannot really fully put in.

This took me a week to read - which is an indication that I found it a bit of a struggle - I liked parts of it - and it did make me laugh but I just didn‘t love it and I really thought I was going to.

⬇Do not let the cover fool you. This isn‘t really for kids. I think kids would enjoy it, but some parents may be a little perturbed by the language. But other than that this was a riot. I have never heard of the Adventure Zone podcast, but I can guarantee that I will be looking it up. This book is like reading a role playing game like Dungeons and Dragons while it is taking place. ⬇

LibrarianRyan It has action, it has sass, it has fun characters. I really like the art work and the imagination that went into the story. I will be picking up book 2 soon.

[#GraphicNovelReview] The Aventure Zone: Here There Be Gerblins. This was so much fun! I now understand why this podcast and graphic novel series has so many fans and so much hype surrounding it. It‘s totally deserving of all the great reviews and I cannot wait to continue with the second volume when it comes out in a few weeks! 📚

Client canceled, so I'm out walking before it thunderstorms and before my next client comes. Watched end of World Cup while I walked (Go USA!) and am now catching up on The Adventure Zone (going to a live show this fall!). Finished 2 books this week so far - Star Wars Master and Apprentice by Claudia Gray (4 🌟) and City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert (5 🌟).

Finished this one in about a day! The graphic novel was a quick read and an absolute obsession for the 24ish hours it took me to read it. I love their podcast that this book was based on and it was really interesting reading it right after I finished this segment of their podcast because there were some changes from the original storyline, but still so good!

Great book! As someone who wasn't super familiar with the podcast beyond some animatics on YouTube, I thought this comic maintained the comedic energy and style of the podcast while adding fun visuals. I feel like I'm playing DnD with my friends reading this!

If you are a person who enjoys some good, solid fun, grab this book. Its my first of 2019, but already one of my favorites! It‘s also my ‘A‘ for @BookishMarginalia ‘s A to Z challenge.

And if you end up reading this series and enjoy it, then I‘d highly recommend the podcast it was based off of, by the same name: https://twitter.com/TheZoneCast

The McElroy's have a humor that I find heart-warming and pure. Carey Pietsch has done an amazing job translating this into comic form. and Tess Stone's lettering is dynamic, professional, and paired perfectly with Pietsch's art.

I'd be curious to see how people like this book if they have not listened to the podcast, because I can't help but love this as an extension of that podcast. But I suspect that adorable art, lovely colors, and cute humor will make this a book that's easy to love.

This was...cute? Lol it feels odd putting it that way. A wonderful adventure/comic/D&D mash up.
After reading the forward by Patrick Rothfuss I had to go and listen to the origins of this graphic novel; a podcast that goes by the same name. That, I must say, added a whole new level of depth for me. I recommend it!

It has been crazy in my household. I have also been juggling a few books before I start classes again next week. Today I received amazing news about a promotion that means I won‘t be working in the branches! I treated myself to an aloe plant. I also potted up some daughters to my Pilea. When I potted up the aloe, one of the daughters was ready for her own pot. Plants and books 🖤🖤🖤 Happy Wednesday! Loving both books 🖤

Mini golf, drunken pirates and D&D comics-a pretty good day! I am obsessed with The Adventure Zone (a Dungeons and Dragons podcast) and this graphic novel adaptation of their first campaign is A+! Beautifully drawn, hysterically funny, and with the promise of future comics. I‘ve read it twice this vacation, and I‘ve also decided I need to buy my own copy-the library‘s isn‘t enough!
