It’s going up against some of the most puzzling monsters and life roadblocks. Coming this winter from Mad Cave Studios, an all-new D&D series, The Last Session, written by the up-and-coming Jasmine Walls with art and colors by Dozerdraws and letters by Micah Myers. Dive into the game and their lives as they discover their true friendship through Dice & Deathtraps!
Jay, Lana, Drew, Walter, and Shen have played Dice & Deathtraps together since high school. Now, on the verge of graduating college and scattering, they’ve decided to finally complete their unfinished first campaign. But when Jay’s partner Cassandra joins as a new player, Lana’s afraid the party won’t ever finish their quest…
“As someone who made a tight-knit group of friends playing D&D in high school, this book was an absolute joy to write,” said writer Jasmine Walls. “Combined with Dozer’s stunning artwork, we’ve created the kind of characters I’d have loved to read about, especially as a teen struggling with what being aro/ace meant to me. We’re exploring the often scary transition from teenage years to adulthood in a way that’s fun, a little messy, and with plenty of monster fighting. One thing I’ve realized as an adult is that friendship really can save the day, and more often than you might think.”
“As a nonbinary asexual artist, I was thrilled to find parts of myself in the characters from The Last Session,” said artist, Dozerdraws. “We have such a big and wonderful cast, and Jasmine managed to give everyone their time to shine. I’m hoping for readers to fall in love with the story and characters, to laugh and cry with them, and to generally find as much joy in this series as I did while working on it.”
