Looking for a Particular D&D Webcomic

Postby Jorpho » Tue Apr 15, 2008 6:17 pm UTC

There are these two comic strips that have been posted in a gathering place that I regularly frequent. No one seems to know where they come from, nor is there any identifying information on them. For all I know they might have simply originated from a student newspaper. However, given that it is posted alongside Nodwick and others, I am assuming it is from a webcomic.

These two strips in particular are four panels each. The visual style is particularly distinctive and rather realistic-looking (probably done primarily in pencil), which is what caught my eye about them. They deal with a small group that appears to be starting up a D&D game - one player happens to select the character sheet of the mighty Wartig, whereas the other ends up with the severly underpowered Morrigan, a fairy that uses a quill pen to fight.

Googling for <morrigan wartig> turns up nothing, so I'm hoping this brief description might ring a bell somewhere. Anyone?

Well, the best webcomic about D&D out there is this one:

Dark Dungeons!!

Ahem, I do believe Elan would disagree with that.

Okay, I love Order of the Stick. I do. It's a great comic.

But I don't think it will ever achieve the comic mastery (or art quality) of Dark Dungeons. Besides, OotS is a series. Dark Dungeons is a one shot, couple of pages comic.

Oops. I didn't bother to check what Dark Dungeons was... Yes, I agree that Dark Dungeons is far more awesome than OotS!

I rather prefer Who Will Be Eaten First? when it comes to Chick, myself. (That reminds me, I still have to watch Mazes & Monsters.)

Regardless, that's not what I'm looking for, nor is it OotS - though I do own the two prequel books. (Anybody try the board game?)

I suppose if there's no alternative, I could bring in my camera. Maybe I was being a little too optimistic with my above description? (It wasn't this hard tracking down Cat and Girl! But then, that's Cat and Girl.)

Here we go. (See Spoiler tag in the first post.) All I have to do now is post this all over the Internet until someone recognizes it. ;)

No other takers? Guess I'll have to embark on that epic quest for knowledge over the Internets after all.

Yeah, but Chick is serious.

The comic you are looking for is Everything Jake by Mike Rosenzweig.

I remember reading that back in high school for like a day or two and then getting bored of it. *shrug*

Huzzah, my curiosity is sated! (I'm glad I bumped this again.)

Much kudos to thee, Mr. Okita.

I bought 'mazes and monsters' the other day. It was a double feature dvd, the other being "loose shoes". I haven't watched 'mazes and monsters' yet.

Aye, I've heard it's on DVD, but I've never had any clue as to where exactly it might be found.

How was Loose Shoes ?
