Synopsis: This month on Dungeons & Dragons. Shipwrecked! Having barely survived their brush with a Sword Coast leviathan, the party finds themselves washed up at the island hideout of a brutal pirate captain. The good news? They’ve found Bobby. The bad news? Bobby has joined the ruthless pirate crew! Forced to prove his loyalty, he must now choose one of his friends to face the most terrifying monster yet. And this creature is most definitely not thrilled to see them.

 

The Story

Bobby has joined Captain Wrathun’s crew as a means of executing a rather sneaky plan. But before he has chance to truly embed himself into the pirates life Sheila and the rest of the gang show up and blow his cover. So, now Captain Wrathum gives Bobby and his friends the unenviable task of battling a giant sea turtle. However, having learned about Wrathum’s healing staff, Bobby uses the fight with the monster as a diversion for a bit of petty theft.

 

Artwork

George Kambadais does some great artwork for this chapter. The artist manages to add a proper sense of movement and action to the fight with the sea monster but also finds time to add a little humor as we catch a glimpse of Uni sticking his tongue out at the monster. I also enjoyed the sequence where we see Sheila use her cloak of invisibility in order to pull off her part of Bobby’s plan.

 

Overall

Another great issue that writer  David M. Booher continues to capture the mood and spirit of the animated Dungeons and Dragons series from the 80s. Additionally, the writer continues to do a great job of capturing the voices of the main characters from the show and does a great job of capturing the reckless nature of Bobby as he goes where others fear to tread.
