Long before the world turned upside down and new generations discovered D&D, six kids boarded a magical roller coaster and were transported to the Forgotten Realms! Noble ranger Hank, intrepid acrobat Diana, quiet thief Sheila, impulsive barbarian Bobby, fearful cavalier Eric, and uncertain magician Presto only want to get back to their own world.

    I've been a big fan of IDW's Saturday Morning Adventures releases so far, and this latest offering certainly pays homage to the classic kids cartoon while adding some fun new wrinkles to these much-loved characters. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Anton Kromoff Apr 11, 2023

    As a fan of the original Saturday Morning cartoon, I'm pumped. It captures the essence of the 80s cartoon with its vivid artwork, fun characters, and adventurous spirit. While the story may seem simple, it sets the stage for an epic journey through the fantastical world of Dungeons & Dragons, where anything can happen. So, strap in and get ready for one heck of a ride, because this comic is sure to evoke fond memories of those Saturday mornings filled with cereal that still has toys in the box and flashy and fun animated adventures!

    AIPT - Collier Jennings Mar 29, 2023

    Dungeons & Dragons: Saturday Morning Adventures #1 lives up to its title and then some, diving back into the world of the show with a creative team that has a clear love for the source material. All that's missing is a bowl of cereal and pajamas. Between this comic and Honor Among Thieves dropping in theaters this Friday, it's never been a better time to be a D&D fan. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Mar 30, 2023

    The art by George Kambadais is done in a more exaggerated style that's significantly different from the cartoon designs. That's been the appeal of the Saturday Morning Adventures brand to have the comic art match the cartoon aesthetic as closely as possible. Read Full Review

    The art in Dungeons and Dragons: Saturday Morning Adventures is appropriately cartoony, but with additional texture afforded by modern color techniques. The pacing and action evoke the original cartoon perfectly. Read Full Review

    This return to the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon is a welcome comeback for fans, while bringing its own stylistic flare, but well have to see where it goes from here. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Apr 3, 2023

    This issue feels more inspired by its source material than an adventure you could slot in among its existing episodes. While artist George Kambadais certainly recreates the look of the kids, he puts his own more modern flourish on things which certainly makes it stand out from the animated series. Read Full Review
