So I am a huge fan of the podcast and was SO happy to see that the story was so close (with clear changes to avoid copyright infringement) I am so excited to experience this saga again in this medium.
[#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!

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
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!
Great adaptation of the podcast!
Had a lovely lazy morning to myself before work today and blew through this entire adventure in one sitting! I‘ve never been able to get into the podcast but the graphic novel was super fun and I‘ll definitely be looking out for the next one.
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 🖤
Super stoked to get a copy of the book signed by Travis! I love seeing these goofy guys being successful doing something creative that they love. If you like to listen to podcasts and don‘t already listen to the McElroys, I highly suggest that you try any of their shows! #thezonecast
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!
So, I was going to love this whether or not it was good. I love The Adventure Zone so much that just this book‘s existence makes me happy. But it is good, and that makes me even happier. The art is great and it translates the tone of the podcast quite well.
Sure, the ABRACA-FUCK-YOU panel was iconic (and so was the last page, which I almost posted before erring on the side of not spoiling new readers/listeners), and Johann's character design was simultaneously not at all how I pictured him and 100% perfect -- but for my money, you can't beat literally every face poor Killian makes when she talks to these boys.
