Reviews - What do customers think about Nodwick #29 (Nodwick Comic Series)?
Gamer geeks Mar 9, 2006
The twenty-ninth Nodwick story is a comic for gamer geeks of all stripes -- both D&D fans and video game geeks. Aaron Williams has fun with pixels and puns in one of the lighter stories in this series... well, they're ALL light, but this one is more so.
The Legion of Princesses has been attacked by the evil Count Repugsive (can you tell he's a bad guy?), and their leader manages to send a distress call to the nearest people -- Artax, Nodwick, Yeager and Piffany. She tells them that the Bits of Reality that the princesses guard have been stolen or scattered, and the world will end if our heroes don't get them back.
Unfortunately, Repugsive uses the Bits to make things harder -- Nodwick is turned into a little pixelated figure, and Piffany and Artax can only give gaming hints. Can Nodwick free his friends from Repugsive's schemes, rescue the princesses, gain more lives, and get the cheat codes so they can get out of there?
Don't worry, Williams doesn't force you to watch as every one of the one-hundred-and-twenty-eight bits is retrieved. If he did, this comic would be at least as long as Robert Jordan's latest book, and I don't think anyone wants to see a single adventure that long.
While the pixelated figures look kind of blurry, it's fun to see Williams exploring a different kind of gaming, and having some fun with it too (Nodwick simply jumps over undead soldiers). And the more absurd the situation, the better this tongue-in-cheek dialogue gets ("Say A to continue. Say B for more options." "I said surrender or perish!").
D&D devotees and gamers geeks alike will enjoy the twenty-ninth Nodwick, as our heroes find out how wonderful the third dimension really is. Or whatever.
