What are some comics, novels or non-fiction with a similar sense of humor and adventure to the new John Rogers-penned Dungeons and Dragons
comic being put out by IDW? (Sample inside.)

There's a review and a few sample pages that really capture the spirit of the comic here
. I know Rogers has worked on the new Blue Beetle comic but I'm not too fond of Jaime and the whole "ordinary teenager" angle, although I'm open to a particularly good storyline.
I want to emphasize the "humor" over "adventure" part. High fantasy is actually a bit of a turnoff for me -- I like the D&D milieu more out of nostalgia than anything else -- so I'm not
looking for good fantasy works, so the McCaffreys and Jordans and Martins and Brookses and whatnot are all out. I do like Zelazny, though.
Other than that, anything goes, as long as it is humorous and there's some swashbuckling action and adventure to it.
