In many ways I’m glad that Kieron Gillen and Stephanie Hans’ Die hardcore D&D series is coming to a conclusion with issue #5 so I can stop informing you all of the many, many reprints that Image Comics have produced because of the success of this book. So, one last time then: issue #5, the second printing, will be out on Wednesday, May 1st. Will there be anyone left who needs to buy it in trade paperback?
Die is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of adults have to deal with the returning unearthly horror they barely survived as teenage role-players. The series is perhaps best described as “Goth Jumanji”—but that only captures a sliver of what you’ll find in this series where fantasy gets all too real.
