The only reason I ever read a newspaper is for the comics (or funnies, if you will). I don't even need it for that anymore due to my discovery of webcomics a few years back. There are so many that anyone could probably find around ten that they find hilarious, like the several D&D comics I read, instead of only reading the ten comics that the newspaper editors decided were the funniest. I have links to my favorites in the sidebar to the right, but I want to shine the spotlight on a particular one.Will Save World for Gold, a D&D webcomic based on 4e. There are a few, like DnDorks, that started out based on another edition and moved into 4e (and even more that stuck with the edition they started with), but Will Save World for Gold is the first one that started with the intent of making 4th edition jokes.
The art style of the comic is very pixelated; the author wanted to poke fun at the complaints about 4e when it first came out that it was too much like a video game. It updates every weekday, which I hope is something that the author will be able to keep up with (I know I can't). While the art is very one-dimensional, the characters are not. It follows a broke human sorcerer named Odivallus, a chaotic-neutral eladrin warlord named Ardon, and most recently a human paladin named Ell on their quest to make a living by killing things that rich people want dead. There's never a dull moment with these three foils, and I'm looking forward to seeing how they can make an adventure that couldn't be any more basic into a hilarious mess!
I'm not very good at reviews, so I'll stop now and let you check it out for yourselves. It's only been going on for a little over four weeks now, so you won't have too much to read before you can form your own opinion. Let the author know what you think!
