AD&D Resurrected

Another new item for April is Dungeons & Dragons Classics, Vol. 1, returning the classic DC Comics Advanced Dungeons & Dragons series to print for the first time!

An ancient evil rises and once again threatens the Realms, and only a motley band of adventures can stop it. A surly dwarf warrior and his benevolent centaur companion, a gladiator who survived the arena, a fallen paladin, and a timid half-elf must somehow find a way to work together if the Realms are going to survive the coming darkness.

This action-packed volume collects the first eight issues of the fan-favorite series by writers Michael Fleisher, Dan Mishkin, and artist Jan Duursema. With an all-new cover by Duursema, colored by Joana Lafuente, of IDW's Transformers.

Printed from the original film, this full-color 200+ page trade paperback will retail for $19.99.


  1. Hey,

    Very nice work with all the D&D comics line, and it s nice to get these old DC ones re-issued in tpb.

    Also, I have to say I am glad I found your blog as it s hell to find up-to-date info on these releases on IDW's website...

    Now, I d like to know if IDW is willing to release in tpb all other DC's D&D comics as Dragonlance, Spelljammer and Avatar ?
    Or even the graphic novel "The Dragonlance Saga" ?

    Also, will the tpb contain the annual issues too ?

    And last question, but DC's, is there any project of re-issuing other publisher's D&D comics ? (like Kenzer & Co's, TSR limited editions, etc)

    Thanks in advance for your answers !


  2. We hope to print the entire DC D&D catalog eventually, but no plans for the Kenzer or TSR comics. The TPBs will contain the Annuals.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hey hey,

    I d be very glad if you could update the upcoming releases list.

    Any date for the release of Forgotten Realms classics 2 ?

    Thanks in advance !



  4. Hey, Kuro,

    Just updated the upcoming releases. The next Forgotten Realms volume will be out in September.


  5. Thanks !

    Heh September for the FRC2... XD
    Well... time to learn to be patient. :P

    Btw, do you plan to include (in the last volume maybe ?) the RPG material (chara sheets / maps / monsters sheets etc) that often appeared at the end of DC issues ?


  6. The first volume includes the back matter, and the rest will, too, as long as there's room.
