No Gods. No Dungeon Masters. written by Io, illustrated by Rachel Dukes, cover by Andy Warner, colors by Hannah Fisher and Rachel Dukes
An analysis of multi-classing between anarchist and nerd identities, No Gods. No Dungeon Masters. provides an adventurous peek into the world of one “un-elected bastard ambassador” for two cultures that rarely overlap.
The full-color comic gorgeously reflects how radical leftist values and geek predilections can inform one another, the struggle to feel comfortable in either community, and how sorcery is real and you can use it to fight cops.
