Can't Wait Wednesday - The Adventure Zone: Murder on the Rockport Limited!

Welcome Back! Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa at Wishfulendings. The purpose is to feature a book that we are excited about. Most of the time they will be books that have not been published yet. Formally this meme was hosted by Jill @ breakingthespine

This week I am highlighting a graphic novel called The Adventure Zone: Murder on the Rockport Limited.    Information comes from Goodreads. 
Page count: 240 

Expected Publication Date: July 16, 2019 by First Second. 


"In the second Adventure Zone graphic novel (adapted from the McElroy family's wildly popular D&D podcast), we rejoin hero-adjacent sort-of-comrades-in-arms Taako, Magnus, and Merle on a wild careen through a D&D railroad murder mystery. This installment has a little of everything: a genius child detective, an axe-wielding professional wrestler, a surly wizard, cursed magical artifacts, and a pair of meat monsters.

You know, the usual things you find on a train.

Hot on the heels of "The Adventure Zone: Here There Be Gerblins", the smash hit graphic novel that launched the series, "Murder on the Rockport Limited" picks up the saga where volume 1 left off. Both books are based on "The Adventure Zone," a tabletop RPG comedy podcast with downloads numbering in the tens of millions and an army of passionately devoted fans. With art and co-adaptation from Carey Pietsch, the McElroys are once again turning their raucous freewheeling D&D campaign into some damn fine comics." 

Why- I read the Here There Be Gerblins and I loved it so much! I love the art style and the story these comics bring. I am a fan of the Podcast but I feel behind so I need to catch up. I love the banter of these characters and the story that the brothers and their dad created. I found out about this podcast after this season so I have not heard this portion. 

Thanks for reading!
