This 2-issue treasury series collects all of the misanthropic magic-user’s earliest misadventures. Both issues features complete stories from the webcomic, tales that originally appeared only in the Gary Con Events Guide, plus behind-the-scenes articles and bonus material.
Each issue also includes rare, never reprinted Marvin the Mage stories and pages — including Marvin’s very first appearance in Tim Kask’s Adventure Gaming magazine, a page from an early (and rejected) Dragon magazine submission, and a Marvin comic from Gygax Magazine No.1.

Marvin the Mage
A misanthropic mage and medieval grifter, Marvin loathes actual adventuring. With a spell book optimized for cheating at card games and mixing adult beverages, Marvin has one ironclad rule that has always served him well: NO dungeons and NO dragons. Surly, selfish, and sarcastic by nature, Marvin is best described as just a pixie’s wing this side of chaotic-neutral.
