Make a history check, players! Today we're kicking off a three-part look at the early history of Dungeons and Dragons in comic books. This episode we're talking about The Realm, a 1980s fantasy series from Arrow Comics that managed to deliver a DND-esque story about before the official brand hit comic shops. Joining us is Kelly Galten of the award-winning game shop Goblin Bros.
Transcripts are coming soon! We're in the process of putting together a new site, which will have a dedicated transcripts section.
