Publication history[edit]

During the 1980s and 1990s, DC Comics published several licensed D&D comics, including Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, and Spelljammer.[1] Dragonlance was first to be licensed and published with its first issue hitting the stands in August 1988. Dan Mishkin wrote the Dragonlance (1988-1991) comic.[2] Mishkin wrote issues #1-20, 22-25, and 28 (1988–1991), and Jack C. Harris also worked on issue #28 (1991). Ron Randall illustrated issues #1-13, 16-19, 22-27, 30-32 (1988-1991); other artists include Dave Hoover on issue #20 (1990), Alan Kupperberg, and Dave Simons. In 1989, Tony DeZuniga illustrated The DragonLance Saga Book Three, written by Roy Thomas.[3] Elliot S. Maggin served as an editor for DC from 1989 to 1991 and oversaw the licensed TSR titles, including Dragonlance. Kim Yale served as an editor for DC from 1991–1993 and oversaw their licensed titles.[4] The comic ran for 34 issues, ending in September 1991.
