Rogers is doing a great job with this cast. Each have a distinct personality and are definately not cliche. They may be basic roleplaying archetypes but their personalities are not. They are a fun group. There is definately a feel that this group has been together for awhile and their banter is refreshing and fun.

And Rogers keeps the story interesting. There’s even some nods to the “issues” that roleplayers go through, the so-called “random encounters” that plague adventurers. As they’re journeying to their destination they run across a couple of random encounters. It’s a kind of “4th wall” moment that works especially well.

Adric’s plan isn’t well thought out, but it works, and helps set the tone for what Fell’s Five is about, how they go about their day and their missions/adventures. Not a well oiled machine, but living off of luck more then anything else.

Some of Adric’s exclamations feel a bit too real world for a fantasy setting. Having him say “what in hell” seems out of place, the same as “oh, come on”. The script flows natural but those few instances stand out in an otherwise solid story.

Di Vito’s art is perfect for this series. His layouts are well done, the fighting flowing naturally and smoothly. He does well with the details of the varioius characters. All the orcs are unique and varied.

He spends alot of time on the heavy details of the main characters armor and weapons. And he maintains this throughout the issue.

Dungeons & Dragons #3 receives
4 out of 5

This is a fun series. It’s what an adventure story should be.
