The official first installment of the D&D comic by IDW has hit the shelves and there’s an edition that comes with a module with a nice red cover (reminiscent of some older adventures on purpose I’m sure). There are maps and stats for the various creatures that the characters encounter in the comic. It was fine to be asked to do the maps for this – and here they are.
First off we have the opening location in a bar when a chasm opens in the floor and all sorts of badness comes out, the Staggered Goat:
