EEEEEEEEEE!!! Today’s adorable comic is by the wonderful Mary Varn of NPC Comic. The kitties in her comic are of the talking/RPG-playing variety, I absolutely love that she gave Laondo and Tasselhoff a chance to speak. (If not a chance to game! Poor sad kittyfaces in the last panel!! <3) I like to imagine now that Tasselhoff’s many exploits in ruining carefully set up game pieces is just his way of trying to learn how to play so he and his brother can go have a board game night with Chloe and Bink. :3
Anyway, if you haven’t checked out her comic, go give it a try!!

I love, love, LOVE that Lar deSouza (of Least I Could Do and Looking For Group fame) managed to work a joke about Monopoly into this comic! It’s not something I would have had the guts to take on, but I spent MANY an hour growing up playing (and arguing about!) this game with my family. No one ever won – we’d almost always get distracted by dinner or bedtimes or screaming younger siblings before we finished a game, but maybe that’s why we kept playing it – in the hopes that one day, we’d actually breeze through a game and have a conclusion.
Also, how amazing does Joel look as Uncle Pennybags? GOSH, and Dustin in his vagabond getup!! PRICELESS!!! I <3 this strip so much!

Hey everyone! Today’s guest ART is by one of my oldest & dearest friends, Mawii. She has turned herself, our friend Rebecca Hicks (of Little Vampires!) and me into the CUTEST D&D characters!! I absolutely LOVE her take on Becky the Barbarian, and my animal companion is, of course, my cockatiel Nutmeg.
Mawii!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 You are the BEST!!!

Konnichiwa! Today’s comic is by the world-travelling, karaoke-singing Jeff Ellis, of Teach English in Japan. He is also the President of Cloudscape Comics, which is an AMAZING group of indie-comic artists based out of Vancouver.
Having spent a few wonderful afternoons playing games at the Storm Crow Tavern with Jeff, I can say that vintage games, while sometimes time-consuming to get started, are well-worth the effort. (Even if it’s just for the “Wow, how did THIS get made?” factor. :p )

Today’s comic is by the most dapper and excellent gentleman I know, Jonathan Dalton, who draws just ALL of the comics. (A Mad Tea Party, In the Hall of the Octopus, and The Legend of Bold Riley: The Talking Bone, to name just a few!)
I very much enjoy how blasé the group is as they discuss the tragic downfall of the Smurf race :p I imagine Dustin might work that into a game some time…
