    One thought on “Table Titans, Volume 1: First Encounters”

    1. I received this as a Christmas gift. Good call. It's exactly the sort of hilarious, absurd and generally goofy romp that I enjoy. Now, I have to wait for Volume 2. Well, I might need to break down and read the web comics, which likely won't stop me from eventually buying any physical version that gets released (Hello, Looking for Group).

    2. Loved this graphic novel. Story is excellent and the artwork is stunning! A group of friends get together to play Dungeons and Dragons but the story also takes you into their game play and takes you along on their D&D quest! Looking forward to Volume 2.

    3. Kurtz perfectly captures what a roleplaying game can feel like, while toying with the concepts of gamer cliches like the min-maxer, the roleplayer, the newbie, etc. Table Titans is part adventure story, part character development. Alan, Val, and the rest of the crew have their own hangups and problems, and there's a lot of subtext in certain scenes For example, there are hints of a larger story behind the animosity that Alan has with Kate, the leader of the rival "Dungeon Dogs" group. While real [...]

    4. I've played D&D maybe four times in my life and mostly it consisted of making fun of my brothers. But this comic was so funny and endearing it made me wish I'd been more of a nerd growing up. (Who am I kidding, I was plenty nerdy, but I wish I would've embraced my inner dork.) Loved the art and the story. Might try to find myself a D&D group. Definitely will be following this series. Warning: It's got mild language and some blood. Not for little kids. I had to do some quick editing when [...]

    5. I picked this book up at PAXSouth this year and I'm really glad I did. It's a delightful and absorbing comic that reflected almost every DnD group I've ever played in. I love the curvy and confident Val Bronzebottom most of all.

    6. I backed the Kickstarter of this after seeing the comic online. It's kind of odd buying something when it's available for free, but this is that good. Roll on Volume 2

    7. A fantastic read for those that love D&D or RPG's of any brand. Wonderful characters and there is so much here to be explored with these characters.

    8. It was a good story. But kind of oversized and expensive, as short as it is. Interesting backstory and D&D anecdotes. But it doesn't seem worth the $20 price tag.
