TSR's D&D Adventure Ads

These one-page mini-comics ran as ads in the early 1980s. All but the first one were drawn by Bill Willingham, who would go on to create Comico's Elementals and who is currently writing DC's Fables.

  1. Willingham drew those? How did you find that out? I really love Fables. One of my favourite books.

  2. Hey Slentz, you can see Willingham's distinctive signature in the fourth image, panel 6.

  3. After you posted Attack of the Mutants the other day, I got hit with nostalgia hard! But that made me remember these D&D ads which I absolutely loved... and lo & behold, you post 'em for me. Thanks Jason!

  5. I loved these. I had always wished that there were more of them. I could have read a whole comic of them. Thanks.

  6. You can see the early Michael Golden influence in Willingham's art for these ads.

  7. I still have a load of those Willingham created Monster Cards. Some cool stuff. LOVE Fables (and the FIRST Elementals book)

  8. All but the first TWO. The second installment is by Roslof, I believe.
