“…did you get some kind of discount on orc miniatures?”

"Lord of the Rings is more or less the foundation of modern D&D. The latter rose from the former, although the two are now so estranged that to reunite them would be an act of savage madness. Imagine a gaggle of modern hack-n-slash roleplayers who had somehow never been exposed to the original Tolkien mythos, and then imagine taking those players and trying to introduce them to Tolkien via a D&D campaign."

This is sheer genius – a comic strip asking the question "What if the Lord of the Rings was a D&D campaign?" Of course, you might not get a lot of it if you’ve not played role (with dice and stuff, not running around the woods with rubber swords or anything that a sex therapist might advise). But if you are a veteran roller of the regular solids, you’ll recognise an awful lot of it.
