Carey Pietsch had already set the tone of this series of graphic novels in the first volume, but she continues to absolutely nail it in Rockport This volume introduces some beloved characters, most notably Angus McDonald, and Pietsch s versions of each is so perfect Every panel is absolutely gorgeous as well The transition from audio to visual Seriously I don t know how they pulled this off so well The Adventure Zone is a mostly improved podcast, but they manage to both tell the story in a satisfying way and transfer over many of the goofs, pop culture references, and family banter in a way that fits in the visual format This was true in the first volume as well, but I still can t get over how well they translated it here The story The first volume, Here there be Gerblins, is the introduction to the world and the characters, but really sees the McElroys experimenting with the format during the podcast They did a great job of tightening up that arc for the graphic novel, but Murder on the Rockport Limited is the arc where things really start to pick up and I m so excited for the continuation of the series The quality and love. There s a lot of little things in the graphic novel that are simply nice touches There s obliviously inside jokes and easter eggs scattered throughout, but the thing I love the most is the section of fan art at the end of the book The Adventure Zone has a ton of dedicated fans who produce all sorts of wonderful fan art and other content, so it s great to see the McElroys recognize and include that in the graphic novel.What I Didn t Like Nothing I told you above this would be a biased review I love this series and these good good boys and can t wait for the next installment flag 7 likesLike see

knowledge now of where everything leads to, so they know what scenes were filler and not really necessary as well as the deeper mythology of the characters and plot which allowed them to create a powerful new scene at the end of this book that was not present in the podcast version Luckily there s a teaser at the end of the book promising a third book coming, and I really hope we get an

could not figure out ANY part of Griffin s puzzles in this one and he finally got so frustrated that he basically had the NPCs solve most of it for them I get why they took it out here, but it just absolutely killed me in the show because I was like oh my god Griffin, you have vastly over estimated how smart your entire family is lol Looking forward to the next one because I had a VERY hard time
