    Tres Horny Boys are back at it again, and I couldn't be happier to be along for the ride. The Adventure Zone stands out as one of the most exciting, clever, hilarious, heart-breaking and brilliant works of fantasy fiction I've encountered and I'm so pleased to announce that this second volume is just as successful as the first in capturing the wonderful heart and essence of the podcast with style, panache and lots of Jenkins-bullying.

In addition to the crazy stunts, the most darling and wonderful of Boy Detectives and a good old-fashioned parlor room mystery solving speech, there are several little additions to the story that absolutely delighted me in this volume. First of all, *slams fists on the table* FUCKING THANK YOU FOR GIVING THE DWARF LADY A BEARD!!!! My skin is clear and my crops are flourishing because of that decision alone. And that page towards the end where Lucretia (the Director) breaks down in despair after the gang leaves her office??? Like a punch to the gut, except I loved it! All I can say is that I'll be a crazy, passionate fan of everything the McElroys do for the the rest of my forseeable existence and Carey's art is absolutely perfect. I'm already champing at the bit for the next one. <3

    Pre-release review: Oh, man, I am so stoked for this! I was forced strongly encouraged to read Here There Be Gerblins by a friend, and I fell in love with the graphic novel and have subsequently become addicted to the podcast. Seriously, in the three weeks since I started listening to The Adventure Zone, I've listened to 70 episodes, and I have no plans on stopping. But I also can't wait to read more graphic adaptations of the podcast!

    On the book tour for Gerblins, they all praised Carey's design for Graham (The Juicy Wizard). And yeah, I bet this book'll be good. But I'm 100%, all in, totally on board, completely infatuated, in this for the Juicy Wizard.

    Such a fun time. I'm really looking forward to the next one. Even if you don't listen to the podcast, I highly suggest picking up The Adventure Zone graphic novels if you're looking for something new to try.

    While "Here There Be Gerblins" was more of a copy+paste of the original Podcast, "Murder on the Rockport Limited" did a flawless job of adapting the best parts of the podcast while mindfully trimming and adding, to make the story well-rounded and well paced. A wonderful adaptation and well told story that's both dramatic and funny and just so good! Some key jokes are left out of the comic, but this book does well at being it's own thing and adding fresh jokes that leave you in stitches.

Her panels are so detailed and have some truly powerful visuals. It's very emotional seeing our boys in action and our beloved side characters come to life and get more involved in the adventure. Looking forward to seeing this same treatment for Pedals to the Metal! If book two improved that much from the first, I can't wait for the nuance that three surely will have to offer

    Three brothers and their dad started playing D&D and recorded themselves playing it. The podcast, The Adventure Zone, became so insanely popular, that we’re now getting the graphic novel treatment for the eight arcs of their campaign. What a world.

The podcast, The Adventure Zone, became so insanely popular, that we’re now getting the graphic novel treatment for the eight arcs of their campaign. What a world. Listening to this campaign play out over the years was a source of joy. Griffin, the DM,is a natural storyteller, and the familial bonds of the players elevates the comedy and camaraderie with each episode. The story got good, then really good, then fucking BRILLIANT towards the end, and new podcast episode releases turned into midnight listening parties across the nation. So there’s a lot to live up to when translating this story to a new medium. Will the story still make sense? Will the humor still hit? Will the audience still empathize with the characters? Yup. Carey Pietsch once again brings these characters to life on the page, all 220 of them, as Merle, Taako, and Magnus are assigned to recover another artifact from a train station... but their contact has been murdered. What follows is a murder mystery that introduces one of the best characters in the whole TAZ universe (Angus MacDonald, Kid Detective) and some real clever planning and execution by the heroes. Of course they screw up a lot, making things way harder for themselves, but it makes it so much more entertaining watching them claw their way out of it, while making us laugh along the way. Even if you haven’t listened to the podcast, pick up vol 1 (Here there be Gerblins) and now this new entry for some entertaining fantasy role play with surprising heart and depth.

    I LOVE THE ADVENTURE ZONE. I will also be biased towards these books. I don't even care. It's a brilliant adaptation. And yes, it's an adaptation of the podcast. There are some significant changes in this one. We don't get the centipede fight, or the monster Bureau initiation fight. There is also a different ending to this one but the spirit, and the humor is still the same at the podcast. I am obsessed with Griffin's character and the metafictional aspect of this graphic novel.

It's so great. Also, this art is incredible! Casey does a fantastic job and I can't image the work she puts into these projects. I seriously hope they continue the whole series. I will wait each year for these until I'm 40 if needed. Conclusion: Keep

    This might be a bit of a biased review. I'm a huge fan of the Adventure Zone and borderline obsessed with the McElroys in general. There was no way I wasn't going to love this, especially after the fantastic first volume. Murder on the Rockport Limited improves on the first volume in almost every way and, just like the podcast, is where the real core of the Adventure Zone kicks off. What I Liked -The art.

Murder on the Rockport Limited improves on the first volume in almost every way and, just like the podcast, is where the real core of the Adventure Zone kicks off. What I Liked -The art. Carey Pietsch had already set the tone of this series of graphic novels in the first volume, but she continues to absolutely nail it in Rockport. This volume introduces some beloved characters, most notably Angus McDonald, and Pietsch's versions of each is so perfect. Every panel is absolutely gorgeous as well. -The transition from audio to visual. Seriously. I don't know how they pulled this off so well. The Adventure Zone is a mostly improved podcast, but they manage to both tell the story in a satisfying way and transfer over many of the goofs, pop culture references, and family banter in a way that fits in the visual format. This was true in the first volume as well, but I still can't get over how well they translated it here. -The story. The first volume, Here there be Gerblins, is the introduction to the world and the characters, but really sees the McElroys experimenting with the format (during the podcast). They did a great job of tightening up that arc for the graphic novel, but Murder on the Rockport Limited is the arc where things really start to pick up and I'm so excited for the continuation of the series. -The quality and love. There's a lot of little things in the graphic novel that are simply nice touches. There's obliviously inside jokes and easter eggs scattered throughout, but the thing I love the most is the section of fan art at the end of the book. The Adventure Zone has a ton of dedicated fans who produce all sorts of wonderful fan art and other content, so it's great to see the McElroys recognize and include that in the graphic novel. What I Didn't Like -Nothing. I told you above this would be a biased review. I love this series and these good good boys and can't wait for the next installment.

    The short version of any TAZ Balance review is just "god, I love Taako so much" but I'll try to say a few other things as well ;) This is probably my favorite campaign from Balance, although some of my favorite parts aren't really translated to this graphic novel adaptation.

Also, I don't know why but them ragging on Jenkins about his spell slots is one of the most hilarious things in the whole series to me so I enjoyed that a lot here. Definitely makes me want to go back and listen to the podcast version though because they obviously cut out all the parts where they just could not figure out ANY part of Griffin's puzzles in this one and he finally got so frustrated that he basically had the NPCs solve most of it for them. I get why they took it out here, but it just absolutely killed me in the show because I was like oh my god Griffin, you have vastly over-estimated how smart your entire family is lol. Looking forward to the next one because I had a VERY hard time visualizing what was happening with all the racing in an audio format so I'm hoping I will like the graphic novel version a lot better for that.

    Another great entry in The Adventure Zone's "Balance" series. It's really amazing getting graphic novel adaptations of this story. It's truly a fantastic tale, filled with interesting and surprising plot twists, fun and deep characters, and tons of varied, wild locales. While I loved the story, I'm not keen to re-listen to over 70 hours of content, so being able to relive it in this more easily digestible form with absolutely beautiful artwork accompanying it is great.

This second volume improves on the first by beginning to tweak the story a bit, given the family's knowledge now of where everything leads to, so they know what scenes were filler and not really necessary as well as the deeper mythology of the characters and plot (which allowed them to create a powerful new scene at the end of this book that was not present in the podcast version). Luckily there's a teaser at the end of the book promising a third book coming, and I really hope we get an adaptation of the entire storyline, because this is a fantastic fantasy story that everyone should be reading, brought to life by tight writing and breathtaking artwork.

    A lot of the spark and fun is lost in graphic novel format, since much of the humour of the show comes from improvisation & the sense of immediacy you get when the Horny Boys are experiencing their adventures in real time. If I had read this book with no context, I don't think I would enjoy it. But, oh well! I do have context! So I enjoyed it a lot!

    IT'S a real surprise that a podcast has been adapted into such a uniquely exciting graphic novel. The art is wonderful- bright, colourful and fun whilst consistently being clear about what's happening, particularly in combat. The characters are wonderful and Griffin's interjections as DM were well done and added an extra bit of comedy. I enjoy that there's plenty of humour but also a story-thread throughout.

    I just can’t get enough of this series! The first installment is absolutely brilliant and the second is somehow even better. There is nothing like this series out there or that even begins to come close to it. I mean, in this installment alone we have a genius child detective, an axe-wielding professional wrestler, a surly wizard, cursed magical artifacts and two meat monsters. If that doesn’t intrigue the hell out of you and make you pick this series up then I don’t know what will! On top of al I just can’t get enough of this series!

    I only read the first volume of this because it was a Goodreads Choice Awards graphic novel nominee last year. And now I'm reading the second volume because it is in this year's Goodreads Choice Awards. As I vowed to myself with Monstress, this is not an error I will make a third time. This murder mystery set on a train is dull, slow and not funny. I guess you really need to follow the podcast to get anything out of it.

    Another incredibly entertaining installment in The Adventure Zone series. I really appreciate how well this story balances some of the great comedy bits from the podcast with the overall narrative of the story. Carey Pietsch's art was great as usual! I especially loved how Jenkins and Angus McDonald were drawn.

    Taako, Merle and Magnus go on a train adventure, where they have to solve a magical murder mystery with the help of a plucky ten year old detective. Teleportation, rushing in, powerful magical artifacts, and much silliness ensues. A fun second installment. Looking forward to the next!
