Screen Rant Talks D&D: Infernal Tides

SJ Twining from Screen Rant chatted with me about my ties to Dungeons & Dragons and all the fun Max Dunbar and I have had working on Infernal Tides, the latest D&D comic mini-series. Check it out!

D&D: Infernal Tides #1 Reviews

Bravo, Bard: “a delightful adventure that pulls a lot from its inspiration without feeling like a rehash of it. With fantastic art and clever writing, this comic will please not only D&D fans, but fans of good stories in general.”

Comic Book.com: 10/10 “While Zub and Dunbar are a fantastic pairing in any circumstance, Infernal Tides feels like their strongest work to date. Dunbar’s art is absolutely phenomenal and Zub integrates elements from Descent Into Avernus effortlessly without making it feel like a rehash of the adventure.”

Comic Book University: “I think that we’re in good hands with these books.”

Here Be Wonder: 10/10 “Jim Zub and Max Dunbar have kicked off an amazing new chapter of the D&D comic and I am loving it.”

The Pullbox: 10/10 “Adventure and intrigue abound, expertly seasoned with just the right dose of humor…Layered and well-paced, we get glimpses of the horror to come and just enough information to leave us tantalized for more”

Multiversity: 8.6/10 “A fiend-fighting fun time in Baldur’s Gate, bringing the beloved band of brave heroes back to battle the forces of badness. Everyone working on this comic must have rolled a Natural 20, because it’s a critical hit.”

Reading With a Flight Ring: “The linework is exquisitely laid down and the varying weights being utilized really bring about some of the best attention to detail that you’ll see. Max and Sebastian are able to bring this to life with such awe and wonder that even the tiniest of details are displayed.”

The Gallant Goblin: “The comic is beautifully illustrated and fast-paced. The fight scenes are a delight for any D&D player as you get to see spells and class abilities come to life on the page.”

D&D VS Rick and Morty: The RPG Adventure Reviews

Bravo, Bard: “There is plenty here to please any fan of the show, and does well to highlight what makes the show loved by many. As an introductory product it works well; new players will be able to run this adventure with minimal effort, allowing them to focus on the fun new experience it brings. “

ComicBook.com: “Dungeons & Dragons vs. Rick and Morty is a hoot, and I’d be willing to play again in a heartbeat. Anyone looking to spice things up at the gaming table would do well to seriously consider it.”

Dice Monkey: ” There’s also just a lot of really weird stuff going on there. For myself, I would probably throw one or two of these rooms into a mad scientist dungeon, or use it as a bizarre level of the Dungeon of the Mad Mage.”

Dungeons & Donuts: “It’s a suitably meta and sci-fi twist on a D&D adventure that’s sure to please die-hard fans of the show most of all.”

EN World: “The Rulebook also does an excellent job of explaining how a role-playing game works, better than most. Ignore some of Rick’s ravings about power, and it has solid DMing advice.”

Gamespot: “This set gives you the tools to start playing in a simplified format before you dive into a major campaign–because D&D has a huge learning curve, this is a nice way to dip your feet into the water.”

Gaming Gang: 8/10 “Dungeons & Dragons Vs Rick and Morty will sure to please those who dig the Adult Swim show and are looking to give D&D a try. The included adventure is intersting, if a bit lightweight, and contains plenty of nods to the animated series.”

Geek Dad: ” I think the theme and execution of the Dungeons & Dragons vs Rick and Morty set are exquisite. The set stays true to the themes, humor, and characters of the show, highlighting some of the most meme-worthy moments in the show’s history. While I wouldn’t play this set with kids under 16, I think it’s a roaring good time to play with adults.”

Geek Tyrant: “If you enjoy Rick and Morty and want to try D&D, or you want to try to get your friends into D&D, D&D vs Rick and Morty is a great tool to help with that. Heck, even if you already play and like Rick and Morty, this would be a fantastic dungeon crawl to run and I’m sure you and your friends would never forget.”

Geek Wire: “The Lost Dungeon of Rickedness is an adventure made just like Gygax used to do it, with constant action, harsh punishments for stupidity, rewards for creative problem-solving, and most crucially, no rhyme or reason to it at all.”

IGN: “it’s clear that the team behind this crossover is incredibly invested in striking a great balance between paying homage to and reverently adapting the source material while also making the adventure accessible to new players”

io9: “it was great to take a break from the norm and embrace the silly, stupid fun of Dungeons & Dragons. In the world of Rick and Morty, anything is possible…everything is encouraging.”

The Gamer: “DMs will be easily able to bring out the more bizarre, Rick-infused properties of the dungeon to get genuine laughs and gasps from players. In some ways, the dungeons is designed to prey upon the expectations of veteran adventurers.”

Nerdvana: “In true Rick and Morty fashion, both the rulebook and adventure encourage you to throw out the material presented when convenient or necessary, making it your own in an appropriately subversive Rickth Edition.”

Tribality: “I think it would be a ton of fun to run for players looking for a silly dungeon, especially as a break from a serious campaign. If you are a fan of the show or comic and want to run a Rick & Morty mini-campaign, then this box set is worth the price.”

D&D Young Adventurer’s on Forbes

Rob Wieland has put together a nice write-up on The D&D Young Adventurer’s Guides and praises the way the series brings new players into the gaming hobby.

“Here’s a big secret; these books are also great for new adult players. Taking in all the lore and the rules of Dungeons & Dragons all at once can be intimidating for people new to the game. By breaking that info into small, digest sized books, having these at the table full of new players keeps them engaged while making characters.”
