Dungeons & Dragons comics have been around since the 1980s, but IDW’s new take on the classic role-playing game looks to take the series to a whole new level with tales that will appeal to both hardcore fans and those who’ve never picked up a 20-sided die.
In November, IDW premieres a new ongoing D&D series written by star screenwriter John Rogers, creator of the hit TNT series Leverage and co-creator of Blue Beetle Jaime Reyes at DC Comics. Fans have already seen a preview of Rogers’ “Fell’s Five” in the special $1 Dungeons & Dragons #0 issue that came out in August, which has earned raves for its breezy dialogue and action-packed art by Andrea DeVito (Marvel’s Annihilation).
We decided to find out more about this new series…and test Rogers on his D&D-fu. We warn you – this gets hardcore. That’s right – this is an advanced Dungeons & Dragons interview.
