|About the Book|
Everything in Erfworld is clever — the dialogue, the sound effects, the complex relationships between the king and his underlings, and the strange mechanics of Erfworld, which are designed to tweak the clichés of strategy and fantasy gaming. Plus the art is oddly beautiful and very witty. If you’ve ever wondered what it would look like if a squadron of teddy bears fought a squadron of giant spiders, head straight for Erfworld.”–Lev Grossman, TIME MagazineOne of the most popular fantasy comics ever made comes to Kindle!
