    “The Morning After” is a fine story, mainly notable for its illumination of backstory [7]. “Head Cheeeese” is a little shallow, but gives Morales a fun excuse for some stylistic drawing and Grubb an excuse to feed us some backstory on our favorite halfling [6]. “Triangles” is a very good look at the character and backstory of a couple of our characters, with just enough adventure thrown in to keep things going [8]. The TSR Worlds annual that finishes things off is unfortunately a letdown, as most of the chapters are meaningless stops on worlds without sufficient plot [5]. Overall, though, still a good book.

    This book has some pretty good stories. It is true that a lot of them feel dated, but they're still fun, and in some cases really strange. "Head Cheese," for instance, was not at all what I was expecting from an old collection of D&D comics. I am not sure that it would get written nowadays, but it was really good. My only complain was the entire Spelljammers section. It is still worth reading the other stories, but I found myself getting bored and skipping ahead once I got there. That said, it was interesting to get a sampling of some of the other D&D worlds in the series, and since I have a ton of D&D comics, I'll be looking forward to checking them out. It's interesting to think that there was an entire universe built around the Forgotten Realms universe, and that said universe spilled into the young brains of millions of kids back when this series was published thanks to the magic of table top RPGs. A fun read, but leafing though the Spelljammers annual is all you should do. It took me a month to read this comic, because I didn't want to have to read that part. The other stories are totally worth it.

    I enjoyed the Realms-centred stories but boy howdy did all that good character development get sidetracked by that random Spelljammer stuff.

    Another visit with old friends . . . I had enjoyed volume 1, and volume 2 was almost as good. I see that volume 4 is available for Kindle Fire too, but volume 3 is not. That is so strange and illogical, it hurts my brain . . .

    The first time I really noticed Rags Morales' art was reading these comics years ago, and I loved it then as I do now. I was also impressed with how well I thought Jeff Grubb scripted the series, since he wasn't a comic book scribe. Good, solid fantasy.

    First half is just as good as volume one but the Spelljammer crossover is fairly awful with no sense of pacing, which is a shame because spelljammer is a pretty cool setting.

    This is the second collected volume of DC's Forgotten Realms series. Jeff Grubb's writing continues to shine in this one, really fleshing out the characters and their relationships well while also giving good action, including nice clear action scenes. I quite enjoyed this volume.It ends with the inclusion of an annual which connects this book with Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and introduces Spelljammer. The annual is pretty terrible, with a strange, meandering plot and honestly the whole idea of adding spaceflight to the D&D universe is well, weird, especially since it takes place in the same time period as the other comics where there's no modern technology at all. Plus the artist manages to ruin the best thing about the art from the original series: Varja was always drawn to have a figure suitable for a strong, athletic woman with broad, strong shoulders and powerful-looking thighs. In the annual the artist draws her with a generic "sexy female" figure who is built exactly the same as every other female character in the annual. Sigh.Anyway, the annual is terrible, but the rest of the book, which is the bulk of it, is quite good and I enjoyed it. It kept me guessing about what would happen and developed the characters really well.

    Volume 2 starts off with Dwalimor Omen's crew entering a new story arc involving a winged girl. The issues provide more backstory for Omen himself and the halfling, plus a little budding relationship for paladin. It flows onto a Spelljammer plotline, which I'm not too familiar with, as Spelljammer was a bit too fantastic for me, so I never really liked the setting. The spelljammer parts were a bit dull, and the bits where they encounter local inhabitants were poorly done - I just can't imagine any random inhabitant of Krynn (yes, Krynn is featured) or Toril to not react much to spacefarers, or a random Realms inhabitant to know what an "asteroid" is. So Omen's crew was fine, the Spelljammer parts, not so much. Plus the artwork seems pretty poor here - seemed very inconsistent in quality.

    The Forgotten Realms portions are still great (although one of Jasmine's nicknames for Ishi makes Jasmine rather less likable than I remembered), but the TSR Worlds Annual at the end of this collection is rather lackluster (in spite of - or perhaps because of - the story taking the cast to the settings of the other DC D&D comics).

    The adventure continues with Omar is accused of treason, a backstory of the halfling and a crossover story with Spelljammer about Jasmine. Fun and quick action.

    The Spelljammer crossover in the last few issues? Stunningly awkward and amazingly late 80s.

    3.5/5. Really fun.
