The creative team of B. Dave Walters and Tess Fowler craft a fantasy story that hews close to classic fantasy and yet is unique to D&D. Fowler's art in particular is a highlight, as this is probably the strongest work of her career... A must-read for any fans of 'classic' fantasy, even if you've never picked up a die. -ComicBook.com Bookended by real emotional weight. Walters' script is tight and focuses on character development rather than world-building, which allows him to move the plot along at an intense pace. Fowler and Fotos are in full beast mode here, delivering page after page of pure awesomeness. -Nerdist If you have ever played D&D before, you can for sure see this as if it was being played out over the tabletop. Some areas felt like someone had rolled a Nat20 and areas where someone failed a saving throw. It all felt just like a group of people had played this out, and this is the shortened version of that story. --Pastrami Nation
