"The Mind-Blowing Cover Art of Classic D&D"

Not as amusing all the way through as one would like -- but very funny in multiple places.

I'm not sure if someone should point this out to Mr. Otus -- or should specifically keep knowledge of this article from him for his *and our* safety...

I like the art. I can do without some of the "witty" comments.

Hmmm. What a great set of modules!

I played through, ran or read every single one of those. Good times.

Did Wizards ever release those as PDFs? It would be fun to take a look at them again.

Well, I hope there was no offense.

The absurdity of the balloon animal gag cracked me up. But it wasn't all of the same quality...

Nah, not offended. I like the pics, just thought the commentary wasnt needed. No biggie.
