Bizarro Back Issues: The Quest For The Moonpenguin! (1989)

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons #12, IDW

Despite its reputation as something that its players take very seriously and often get obsessed with --- occasionally to the point of falling in with actual demons and casting a mind-bondage spell on your father to get the latest manuals --- Dungeons & Dragons tends to flourish when it embraces its silliness. I mean, even at its most dire, even when the fate of the multiverse is in the balance, it's still the same game that brought you that most fearsome product of magic gone mad, the Owlbear.

Unfortunately, the fiction that goes along with it doesn't always have the same kind of jokes that you get when you're rolling dice around the table. That's why I appreciated "Catspaw," a four-part story from 1989's Advanced Dungeons & Dragons comic, in which the cast of hearty adventurers falls all over themselves and screws up constantly as they try to recover a mystical artifact known as... The Moonpenguin.
