Dungeons and Dragons seems to be more popular than ever. Of course that may just be my perspective after having been immersed in the game realm for the last year and a half… IDW Publishing and Hasbro teamed up to bring not just one Dungeons and Dragons comic to reader, but another set in the Dark Sun universe.

The Dark Sun setting was originally printed in 1991 and, if a somewhat-fringe hobby like tabletop RPGs can be said to have cult classics, then the not-medieval, not-european-ish, not-tolkienesque world of Athas would certainly fit that bill. Now Wizards of the Coast has revived the oft misunderstood Dark Sun setting. And I have finally managed to get my hands on their first offering, “The Dark Sun Campaign Setting.” And let me tell you, dear reader that I haven’t bored to tears yet, it is full of surprises.
