The adventure zone graphic novel sequel
The Adventure Zone: Murder on the Rockport Limited! by Clint McElroyIn the second Adventure Zone graphic novel (adapted from the McElroy familys wildly popular D&D podcast), we rejoin hero-adjacent sort-of-comrades-in-arms Taako, Magnus, and Merle on a wild careen through a D&D railroad murder mystery. This installment has a little of everything: a genius child detective, an axe-wielding professional wrestler, a surly wizard, cursed magical artifacts, and a pair of meat monsters.
You know, the usual things you find on a train.
Hot on the heels of The Adventure Zone: Here There Be Gerblins, the smash hit graphic novel that launched the series, Murder on the Rockport Limited picks up the saga where volume 1 left off. Both books are based on The Adventure Zone, a tabletop RPG comedy podcast with downloads numbering in the tens of millions and an army of passionately devoted fans. With art and co-adaptation from Carey Pietsch, the McElroys are once again turning their raucous freewheeling D&D campaign into some damn fine comics.

Regular episodes of the podcast feature the family solving puzzles, fighting enemies, and leveling up their characters in a series of cinematic and humorous encounters. The campaign concluded with episode 69 in August Following the wrap up of this three-year campaign, the McElroys decided to work on smaller "experimental arcs" in order to give themselves time to work on their next overarching story line. Each of these arcs takes place in their own game worlds separate from those explored in the other campaigns. The third campaign, Amnesty, has Griffin returning as game master. The fourth campaign, Dust, features Travis in the role of game master. There are two additional mini-arcs available to Maximum Fun donors.
