One of the funniest comics being published today


That's right. KNIGHTS OF THE DINNER TABLE (Kenzer & Co.) is one of the consistently funny comics being produced today. At first, I was put off by the "apparently published on a Commodore-64"-style artwork, but the writing more than makes up for the static artwork. This comic follows the adventures of a group of D&D-style role-playing game players - the Knights of the Dinner Table. Now I personally haven't played a role-playing game in 20 years but I recognized these characters immediately like long-lost gaming friends.

There's the hack-and-slash, kill-everything-that-moves-for-the-experience-points guys, there's the Rules Lawyer who constantly interprets the game's rules to benefit the players, the gal who actually tries to ROLE PLAY, and the long suffering Dungeon Master... great fun from this classic mix. Also included in this 80-page monthly comic are game reviews, movie reviews, comic reviews, OLD game reviews and lots of supplemental stuff for role playing games... all in all a tremendous package for $3.99 an issue! And just plain hilarious! How can you lose?

KOTDT is truly an hysterical book! I never would have picked it up if it hadn't been for one-time CC employee John Madden indicating that he thought I would like it. The first issue I bought was #16 and I have followed the book ever since.

Unfortunately, the cover price is rising to 4.99 in a month or two, but it's still well-worth the investment.

I couldn't agree more, this is a really fun comic read for anyone that has ever done any role playing. Even tho the art is so minimal, the interaction between the characters are so funny, I've laughed out loud many times while reading it. Also, I found out about geocaching thru an article in this comic.
