Matthew Mercer is also responsible for my interest in Dungeons and Dragons. I came for the voice and stayed for the game. Anyone who watches Critical Role knows there is no lack of Dungeons & Dragons content. The first campaign alone has over 115 episodes. However, all good things must come to an end, and I’ve recently found myself all caught up on Critical Role content and waiting for new episodes of The Legend Of Vox Machina to drop is trying my patience. That’s where my recent obsession comes in, the Critical Role comic books.
If, like me, you’re looking for more signature Critical Role Dungeons & Dragons content or even if you’re looking to dive in for the first time, here is a list of the ones I suggest.

Over the last two years, I’ve found myself constantly looking for ways to stay connected and have fun with my friends that didn’t consist of us going out or just chatting over Discord with each other. Dungeons & Dragons was that way. It allowed for us to get together and, for a while, forget about the real world and replace it with one of our creations. While I would never have thought reading comics based on another groups Dungeons & Dragons games would be entertaining, they are, and they are also an excellent source of inspiration for my games with my friends.
