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.

For example, storm giants seek to restore their lost monarch, King Hekaton. Cloud giants search for an ancient dragon treasure trove, while hill iants seek an abundance of food with which to feed their massive monarch, Chief Guh.
