Die Vol. 1: Fantasy Heartbreaker

Die Vol. 1: Fantasy Heartbreaker Review

The Wicked + The Divine writer Kieron Gillen teams up with artist supernova Stephanie Hans (WicDiv, Journey Into Mystery) for her first ongoing comic. Die is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of forty-something adults have to deal with the returning, unearthly horror they only just survived as teenage role-players. If Kieron's in a rush, he describes it as "Goth Jumanji", but that's only the tip of this obsidian iceberg.

Collects issues #1-5 of Die.

    Really stunning all across the board. The art is stylistically interesting and really lovely to look at - despite the detail work it feels very smooth and dreamy. The story itself hits me right where ...

    Kieron Gillen's latest, with its apparently simple premise of 'Whatever happened to the kids from the old Dungeons & Dragons cartoon afterwards?', is not a comic about which I can pretend any sort of ...

    Aside from one brief sojourn in the superhero game Skraypers, I don’t play PnP RPGs so I’m sure 90% of this went over my head. Speaking as an outsider to this world, I couldn’t connect to this s...

    Die is a fantasy with a standard theme: RPG players get sucked into their fantasy world. It's good, in large part because it twists the genre just a bit, with our players returning to their fantasy re...
