The Adventure Zone: Here There Be Gerblins

by Clint, Griffin, Justin, and Travis McElroy

Art by Carey Pietsch

First Second, 2018

Adult Fantasy Graphic Novel

4 cups of tea out of 11

Summary: Three characters and their Dungeon Master go on a fantastical adventure.

Likes: It was really funny and the art was fabulous.

Dislikes: It was really shallow. The characters and plot lacked depth. I didn’t really care what happened.

Overall I didn’t hate this at all. I read it all the way to the end. If you’re looking for something fun, this might be for you. But I won’t continue on with the series and there are other fantastical graphic novels I’d recommend instead like Monstress, Nimona, The Backstagers, and The Tea Dragon Society.


Language – Medium, swearing and crude humor throughout

Violence – Medium, fantasy violence
