In this Book Club we chat about at a bunch of D&D Comics including the end of the current run of Dungeons and Dragons, some Eberron books (D&D Infestation 2, and the 2012 D&D Annual), and we explore the start of the Forgotten Realms comic and interview Ed Greenwood (writer and creator of the Realms) about the difference between writing a comic and writing a novel and more. We are joined in this book club by listeners Eric Paquette and Andy Myhr.
