Okay. Harken to my tale. Once upon a time (a couple of years ago) there were these brothers who had a bunch of really successful podcasts, and they decided to do a new podcast with their dad, where they all played D&D together as a family, and lo, this new podcast was called The Adventure Zone, and verily did it get downloaded over 10 million times, and wow did it totally eat the brains of all who listened, because: It was just. That. Rad. AND THEN did these guys team up with artist Carey Pietsch, and make a graphic novel where the weirdly sweet and brilliant but also super SUPER vulgar and honestly kind of bizarre story of The Adventure Zone got adapted into a goofy, innovative, and compelling graphic novel! Let no man deny that it was the best idea ever, right? Reader, we're publishing it.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A #1 New York Times bestseller

The Adventure Zone is fun, hilarious, and also smart. Hey, guys, can I have a cameo next time?" -- Adam Savage, MythBusters

"My excitement about this existing cannot be dwarfed by anything. You see what I did there." -- Jean Grae, hip-hop artist, actor, and comedian

"The warped fantasy lives of McElroy Sons and Dad are as addictively adorable and unstoppably hilarious as they are on their podcast (a popular mind comic); but somehow Carey Pietsch's gorgeous and playful art makes this deep dive into their beautiful brains even richer, weirder, and more mandatory. This is a critical hit." -- John Hodgman, Vacationland

"Good comic book, fantastic paper." -- Justin Roiland, paper enthusiast and co-creator of Rick and Morty

"Gorgeous art--the characters come to life! I am so happy that this graphic novel is a thing that exists in the world." -- Hank Green, Crash Course, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

"Clint, Griffin, Justin, and Travis McElroy team up with artist Carey Pietsch to adapt the show's first quest in The Adventure Zone: Here There Be Gerblins, and Pietsch's rich animated art style imbues their characters with life, capturing the distinct personalities that were created through voice on the podcast." -A.V. Club

"Pietsch's art adds depth to the page at every turn, bringing this world to life in a really exciting way and also giving the characters a full range of expression that almost makes you forget you are reading." -The Mary Sue

"The larger sardonic commentary on taking fantasy too seriously, matched with the characters' unwillingness to follow a game's unrealistic rules, will be clever and hilarious to those in the know. --Booklist
