Dungeons & Dragons Classics, Volume 4 Reviews
OK, I said I wouldn't be writing any papers on these comics, but there's one thing I want to point out from this series, and that's sex.Or rather, the fact that one hero likes sex and has several different partners; and there's no penalty to be paid or aspersions cast on this hero. I don't mean to hide the hero's gender, but you can probably already guess that it's a woman.This probably seems notable to me because I was just listening to a discussion about The X-Files and how Dana Scully is presented as a strong woman--as long as she's not interested in a guy. The X-Files is not alone (or even the worst) in presenting strong woman as somehow asexual. But it's interesting to compare that to the characterization of Kyriani, who likes men, likes sex with them, never apologizes for that fact, and is never penalized for it.Also, I'm going to give this volume bonus points for showing that the lovable rogue Connor might actually just be self-centered and dangerous--less lovable and more roguish. It's an interesting moral balancing act, understanding his choices, but not forgiving him for them.
Nice of IDW to give us such a hefty volume to finish off the AD&D series, and nice to see Mishkin walking through arcs for a few different characters.Dragon’s Eye (27-30). Unfortunately, Kyriani isn’t the most interesting of Mishkin’s cast, and that drags down this first story, as does the amount of running around throughout it. It nonetheless picks up in the last issues, and has a totally great ending [6.5/10].Pillars of Gold (31-32). A bit silly at times, but some nice focus on Onyx and perhaps more notably some nice focus on the dwarves as a race [6.5/10].The Wager that Saved Waterdeep (33). A silly bit of fluff whose only saving grace is Luna’s intervention [5/10].Rites & Wrongs (34-36). Good to see these characters one last time, and also good to see the inevitable results of allowing a thief in your party! [7/10].
Sword and sorcery fun -- although I have no idea how those skimpy costumes stay on the women during vigorous battles. You don't need to read the previous volumes in order to enjoy Volume 4 (although it would give the final revelation of one of the main characters more of a punch). You do need to have a good understanding of AD & D. (or at least D & D.) I especially like that a sexy centaur is one of the main characters.
This is the fourth and final volume of reprints of DC's Advanced Dungeons & Dragons comic book series. This was very much like the books before it. The plots were either silly or kinda of strange. The characterization was very light. These were okay comics with nothing deeply wrong with them, but nothing in particular to recommend them either.
The last book in the series and the heroes are fighting together for the last time. The first story is about Kyriani who get caught up in a murder and a dragons eye. The second is about Onyx family and the last story is about Connor returning. A decent finish to the series.
