Just a few minutes ago, my first post for Tor.com went live. It’s called “Dungeons & Dragons Returns to Comics,” and it talks a bit about the history of D&D and its publishers with comics. Then it riffs into a quick rave about the new D&D comic from IDW, written by my friend John Rogers, who also runs the TV show Leverage. (Those with decent short-term memories may remember I wrote part of the just-released Leverage RPG too. It’s all so circular.)
Tor.com is a great website, and I’ve been following it for a while. It started out dedicated to things published by Tor, one of the greatest science fiction and fantasy publishers in the world, but it’s steadily spreading out to cover more and more aspects of geek culture.
While at the World Fantasy Convention a couple weeks back, Tobias Buckell introduced me to a number of people in the Big Bar on 2. One of them was Irene Gallo, the art director for Tor, Forge, and Starscape Books. She noticed the fantastic cover Richard Anderson created for the copy of Guild Wars: Ghosts of Ascalon I was carrying around. We got to chatting, and she mentioned that Tor.com wanted a blogger to help out with gaming.
And so here we are. I should be posting regularly to Tor.com from here on out, as time permits. I hope you enjoy coming along with me on this new ride.
