“Advanced Dungeons & Dragons” ranks high among my my favourite episodes of Community. Not only is it brilliantly acted, the concept of having the characters sit around a table and describe to the audience what is happening was incredible bold and was flawlessly executed. It is a testament to the writers, actors and director that this insane concept took off and made an excellent half-hour of television. I can’t watch the episode without actually visualizing at least parts of the imaginary adventures the study- group embarked on. I was thrilled to discover that one of my favourite Community fan artists, Ben Deguzman, has created an illustration inspired by this episode.

This illustration is inspired not only by Community’s D&D episode, but also the D&D cartoon from the ’80s.
