Rick and Morty Roll the Dice with Dungeons & Dragons!

Announced at C2E2, IDW Publishing and Oni Press are bringing two of the most popular properties in the world, Adult Swim’s hit series Rick and Morty and Dungeons & Dragons, together in a brand-new four-issue comic book series. Taking the reins of these two iconic properties is the superstar creative team of writers Patrick Rothfuss and Jim Zub along with Eisner-nominated artist Troy Little .

Debuting this August, the mini-series will throw Rick and Morty into a high-fantasy adventure blended with the wit, humor, and intelligence the show is widely celebrated for.

In this summer’s biggest comic book crossover, Morty goes to Rick for help to learn about Dungeons & Dragons, the game all the cool kids at his school are playing; naturally, things go horribly wrong as Rick, Morty, and the whole Smith family find themselves on an epic quest with no escape in sight.

Each issue will feature variant covers that fans of both series will love, including character sheets, and more! Dungeons & Dragons comics from IDW by Jim Zub are available now wherever books are sold. Oni Press’s Rick and Morty comics are also available where comics and books are sold.

IDW Publishing Announces a New Dungeons & Dragons Comic Series

Break out your 20-sided die and prepare to get spellcasting! Dungeons & Dragons returns to comics this April with more adventures starring the Baldur’s Gate heroes from series past. Fan favorite writer Jim Zub is back to weave another tale and he’s joined by a top-notch stable of artists including Dean KotzSteven CummingsHarvey TolibaoRamon Bachs, and Francesco Mortarino. Rounding out the stellar art team is Max Dunbar who returns to the world of D&D to provide covers.

Each artist will tackle an issue of the series which will focus on an individual hero from our band of adventurers to explore what makes them tick, making Dungeons & Dragons: Evil at Baldur’s Gate the most character-centric series of D&D to date.

The Baldur’s Gate heroes return to the city at last, but their time adventuring in Ravenloft and the frozen northern reaches of the Realms has changed them. Each of them must face great trials ahead before they’ll be ready to embrace their destiny. Minsc, Krydle & Shandie, Delina, Nerys Kathon, and Boo will all take center stage throughout this series. While it does continue Zub’s run on D&D, each story is self-contained and so fans can jump on board anywhere and introduce themselves to this beloved cast of characters.

Dungeons & Dragons: Evil at Baldur’s Gate arrives this April and is guaranteed to feature a miniature giant space hamster (in case you were wondering)!

Wednesday Graphic Novel Review: Rise of the Dungeon Master: Gary Gygax and the Creation of D&D

Rise of the Dungeon Master tells, in graphic form, the story of Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons, one of the most influential games ever made. Like the game itself, the narrative casts the reader into the adventure from a first person point of view, taking on the roles of the different characters in the story.

A unique graphic novel that’s an excellent look into the history of Gary Gygax and the impact of Dungeons & Dragons on pop culture and entertainment.
