Scott Kurtz writes one of the most popular webcomics out there: PVP. Normally it’s a sitcom style comic centred around the offices of a computer game magazine. But occasionally Kurtz steps outside the normal confines of the comic and comments on things going on in either the video game industry or the comic book industry. Let’s just say Kurtz is not afraid of controversy.

For the record: I’ve played D&D. I can see how it may be a stumbling block for some. I view it as a matter of freedom and choose to see it as engaging with fiction. But that’s a wisdom decision for the individual.
