The Kids Present Comics Archeology - Appendix N - Comics' Influence On Dungeons & Dragons

Welcome to Comics Archeology! What started out as a segment during our reviews of graphic novels has now turned into a series and to start us off we will be doing a deep dive into Appendix N this month. In our first episode we asked the question 'What is Appendix N?'.  In our last episode we uncovered specific Appendix N authors' influence on comics with many of them getting their publishing start in popular pulp magazines. In this episode we will shine a light on comics' influence on Dungeons & Dragons. Our last episode will conclude with Dungeons & Dragons' influence on comics. We hope you enjoy this latest exploration! Please drop us a message on the anchor app or send us an mp3 or email to
