I rarely, find a comic that recreates the experience of playing D&D with friends. Either the comic takes it all too seriously (like the Dragonlance comics), or it's a step removed (like the Munchkin comics).
But I think I've found a comic that recreates the fun of D&D for me.
Rat Queens is an old fashioned D&D party of mercenaries (a cleric, a wizard, a fighter, a halfling, in this world called a "smidgen"). They carouse, they bicker, they fight, they earn their gold but act as heroes, too.
Beyond whether the comic is just plain fun, the comic is award-winning fun:
"Rat Queens from Kurtis J. Wiebe and Roc Upchurch took home the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic Book. The medieval fantasy series centers on a diverse cast of female adventurers, including lesbian halfling thief Betty."

I recommend this comic book for the young adventurer (Teen Plus please, because sexuality) of any gender in your life, or for the seasoned D&D player looking to recreate the fun between gaming sessions.
