About The Cover

David Reddick is an award-winning cartoonist whose projects include Legend of Bill, The Trek Life, Gene's Journal, and the Garfield comic strip. He and cover wrangler Mark Plemmons are both fans of gamer web series The Guild, thus spawning this cover parody with the Knights of the Dinner Table (along with Patty as Cyd/Codex and Sheila as Tinkerballa) as the Guild's “Knights of Good”.
