IDW has declared its plans to reprint some classic D&D comics in addition to producing its original comics based on the property. Most of those "classic" D&D comics are about the same quality of the Alex Irvine/Peter Bergting attempt, from what I remember. But the John Rogers story in this issue bodes well for the future of the IDW D&D relationship. It looks like a comic that has appeal outside the gaming fanbase, and it looks like it will be plenty of fun. Read Full Review
It looks like IDW is doing a nice job with yet another licensed property. Probably worth checking out if you're an old-time D&D fan who doesn't have 6 geeky friends and hours of idle time to actually play. Read Full Review
The Dark Sun prologue by Alex Irvine is really too short to leave any sort of impression. At six pages, the readers is given little more than a vague sense that Dark Sun is a slightly more fantastical take on Gladiator with a bit of Conan thrown in. There's little humor to be had, and the art is pretty dull to boot. In the case of either story, readers just aren't given enough material to form a solid opinion in either direction. Rogers' series looks like it could have some potential, but until I can get to know the characetrs a little better I have no idea if I should be excited for the book's release. Be glad issue #0 is only a buck. It doesn't offer enough content to justify much more than that. Read Full Review
