Artists Unite To Fight Hunger With ‘The Adventure Zine’
You may be familiar with the hit Dungeons & Dragons podcast The Adventure Zone, starring Justin McElroy, Travis McElroy and Griffin McElroy of My Brother, My Brother & Me alongside their father, Clint McElroy. The show is a light-hearted and hilarious affair as Griffin plays dungeon master for his family, leading them through perilous adventures and battles.
Inspired by the podcast, a host of incredibly talented illustrators and indie comics artists have come together to create The Adventure Zine, a fifty page book of fan art dedicated to the show, and today the campaign to create the book has launched with the aim to raise money for Facing Hunger, a network of food banks based in Huntington, West Virginia.
The list of contributors for The Adventure Zine is a veritable who's who of top tier online illustrators and artists, including Andy Hirsch, Kate Leth, and Molly Ostertag. The project has been organized by Megan Raley of Small Press Expo and cartoonist Carey Pietsch, who readers may know from recent issues of Lumberjanes.
The campaign has a number of reward tiers starting at $10 for a PDF copy of the book and $25 dollars for the hardback collection. People who donate also have the option of choosing their favorite artist from the book and getting one of a limited number of sketches from them, specifically of their own tabletop role playing game character.
Check out The Adventure Zine's Generosity page for more information about the campaign and Facing Hunger, and to make a donation.
