Review

"The remarkable story of one of the most influential games in the world comes to life in this graphic novel. D&D had a huge impact not only on my life, but also how I thought about engaging people and building community."--Alexis Ohanian, cofounder of Reddit

"The funny, touching, and altogether incredible origin story of one of the most important figures in twentieth-century fantasy. Gary Gygax opened a portal that will never close."--Lev Grossman, author of The Magicians Trilogy

"Role-playing its way to the truth, shrinking the history of gaming to the tabletop, [this book] is a perfectly unclassifiable tribute to Gary Gygax, D&D, and the countless adventurers they inspired."--Hilary Chute, author of Disaster Drawn

"Rise of the Dungeon Master, beautifully illustrated by Koren Shadmi, is both a moving portrait of two creative outsiders and a chronicle of how a new kind of storytelling changed pop culture forever."--Ars Technica

"A fitting tribute to those behind the early pen-and-paper games."--Wired

"Rise of the Dungeon Master is a charming retelling of an origin story that is now practically a legend."--National Post

"Although the story of Gygax and D&D's tumultuous beginnings have already become the stuff of legend, Rise of the Dungeon Master recounts that history in a way that's authentic to the spirit of the game beloved by millions of people."--The Columbus Dispatch

Book Description

Here in graphic form, the epic story of Gary Gygax and how the game he created, Dungeons & Dragons, became a cult hit and lay the foundations of role play.
