Dungeons & Dragons: Saturday Morning Adventures #1

In line with other Saturday Morning Adventures titles IDW has put out over the past year comes Dungeons & Dragons: Saturday Morning Adventures #1 offering a new adventure with the characters from the 80s cartoon who are still trapped in the realm of Dungeons & Dragons. While the characters haven't visibly aged, conversation among the group in which all but Hank have given up hope of ever getting home suggests they've been through several campaigns at this point.

One of the things I thoroughly enjoyed about G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero – Saturday Morning Adventures was how the creators copied the look and feel of the original cartoon. This issue feels more inspired by its source material than an adventure you could slot in among its existing episodes. While artist George Kambadais certainly recreates the look of the kids, he puts his own more modern flourish on things which certainly makes it stand out from the animated series. That said, I'm still curious to see where this campaign will take the characters.
