Tim Sievert's INTREPIDEERS & CLANDESTINAUTS

If you're not familiar with Tim Sievert's The Intrepideers AND you're something of an OSR junkie like me, then you really need to check this comic out. At turns gross, hilarious, action-packed, gross, and unabashedly dungeon-tastic, the thing reads like an old school D&D style guide. Tim's latest work in this vein is the ongoing tale of The Clandestinauts, which can also be read online for free. I highly recommend his stuff!

  1. I second the recommendation!

    It's also worth mentioning Brett Von Schlosser's "Ballad of the Intrepideers" issue, which is one of my favorites.

  4. I had the pleasure of meeting Tim and Brett at the Minneapolis Indie Expo (MIX) for independent comic creators last summer. (They're both based in the Twin Cities).

    Tim was on a panel about science fiction and the paranormal in comics. Apparently Intrepideers is the result of D&D games they'd "wished" they'd played. It sounded like their first try (a few years ago) wasn't all that they'd hoped it would be.

    I can't confirm if they used old school rules or not--maybe I should ask him this year at the next MIX.
