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.
Io and Rachel Dukes deliver a funny and thought-provoking comic sure to be a (critical) hit (get it?) with anarchists and Dungeons & Dragons fans alike.

Seriously, check this out. It’s a short read that will be well worth your time.
Culturally, stuff that’s deemed as nerdy or geeky is often tied to misogynistic, right-leaning, often white men, erasing a thriving and passionate sub-culture. No Gods No Dungeon Masters is a book that looks at how “radical leftist values and geek predilections can inform one another” whilst also exploring how to create spaces that encourage radical thought. As well as, you know, teaching us how magic and sorcery are real, and how we can use them to protect ourselves against very real threats, like cops. Count me the fuck in.
