Though B.A., Brian, Bob, Dave, and Sara may play different characters in different games, their personalities always shine through. KoDT also features articles for gamers from a gamer’s perspective. A hilarious and hysterical slice of (fantasy) life in strips and a wonderful celebration of the gaming culture.”
