36-year-old software engineer Shamus Young likes The Lord of the Rings. He also likes Dungeons & Dragons, so he combined his two passions and created The DM of the Rings, a webcomic in 144 parts.
Seemingly it took him about a year to complete. It’s great, obviously some understanding of both LOTR and D&D is a bonus in understanding its humour, but seriously: this should be published as a book.
