READ! Their journey from small-time bodyguards to world-class artifact hunters!
MARVEL! At the sheer metafictional chutzpah of a graphic novel based on a story created in a podcast where three dudes and their dad play a tabletop role playing game in real time!
Join Taako the elf wizard, Merle the dwarf cleric, and Magnus the human warrior for an adventure they are poorly equipped to handle AT BEST, guided ("guided") by their snarky DM, in a graphic novel that, like the smash-hit podcast it's based on, will tickle your funny bone, tug your heartstrings, and probably pants you if you give it half a chance.
With endearingly off-kilter storytelling from master goofballs Clint McElroy and the McElroy brothers, and vivid, adorable art by Carey Pietsch, The Adventure Zone: Here There be Gerblins is the comics equivalent of role-playing in your friend's basement at 2am, eating Cheetos and laughing your ass off as she rolls critical failure after critical failure.
A laugh-out-loud and exceedingly irreverent collection of comics from the #1 hit web comic, Cyanide and Happiness. Complete with 150 of their funniest classic comics as well as well as 30 brand new ones.
Cartoons can give us a pictorial history of Australia in a series ofcartoon ‘time capsules’; they often hold a mirror up to Australian society.This book shows how cartoonists helped develop a visual vocabulary forAustralian life and culture—whether it is ‘The Little Boy from Manly’, alarrikin digger or Tony Abbott’s red speedos.

AuthorGuy Hansen shows how whether it be post-war politics and the demise of theLabor government, capital punishment, the Vietnam War, Indigenous affairs or changingrelationships with Britain and Asia, nothing has escaped our skilledcartoonists’ satirical pens.
