As the comics Internet's greatest AD&D fan, I do feel compelled to, if not defend that particular story, then at least offer some additional context. The original story arc, comprising the first four issues, was co-plotted by Michael Fleischer and artist Jan Duursema. It did indeed deal with a small band of heroes helping former, fallen paladin Priam Agrivar and his half-elf half sister Cybriani reclaim their kingdom from a demonic mage and fix their messed-up hands.
It's not really all that great, no.
But the next 32 issues are all pretty awesome. With the fifth issue, Dan Mishkin took over as the regular writer, writing all of the remaining arcs save the third one, "Catspaw Quartet," which was written by Jeff Grubb (Duursema drew all of the issues, save for three issues drawn by her husband, Tom Mandrake).
The cast of the book changed fairly immediately upon the conclusion of that first story arc, as well, with Agrivar leaving the title (to star in AD&D's sister book, Forgotten Realms, which featured Rags Morales art; Agrivar and his new campaign party would cross paths with the AD&D cast again in Forgotten Realms Annual #1), and the bland half-elf mage Cybriani bonding with her evil half Kilili to create a new character (with a new hairstyle, that would magically change again later), who took on the combined name Kyriani.
I highly recommend the series, and while you could probably skip the first arc and still follow along okay, that arc is not unreadable or anything. Duursema's art just gets better and better as the series progresses, though.
Produced in the high-volume years of the late 1980s and early 1990s, finding single issue in back-issue bins isn't that challenging a quest to embark upon, but, IDW, which currently holds the license for Dungeons & Dragons comics, has collected the entire DC series in four volumes, under the title Classic Dungeons & Dragons (The old DC Forgotten Realms, meanwhile, is collected as Dungeons & Dragons: Forgotten Realms Classic).
AD&D had a core cast of four characters: Two
Of those four, one of them is a person of color (25%!) and, if you want to get cutesy with it, none of the characters are white men, as the male characters consist of a centaur and a dwarf.
Duursema gives each of the female characters a very distinct look and physique, as well. Kyri is the one with a probably typical comic book body, consisting of large breasks, a tiny waist and wide hips. Former gladiator Vajra, meanwhile, is tall and muscular, with an athletic build. Luna, who owns the inn where our heroes hang out, is a bigger, rounder older woman.
I recently read Tim Hanley's new (prose) book, Investigating Lois Lane, and he points out how relatively rare female artists still are on DC's biggest books, noting that it wasn't until Becky Cloonan drew a story in 2012's Batman #12 that woman had ever drawn Batman, and that no woman had drawn the regular Superman books in...well...ever...yet? He was talking about the way Lois was frequently portrayed after she and Clark married, and how she seemed to spend an inordinate amount of time hanging around their apartment scantily clad, and cited the fact that it was always just a bunch of dudes drawing her that likely contributed.
That seems really weird that Superman and Batman have both been starring in two monthly books apiece that have been around for about 75 years now, and none of those four books have featured a run by a female artist. DC should really get on that.* You know who would be perfect for Action, Superman, Detective or Batman...?
But then, you knew I was going to say that, didn't you?
Actually, I was kind of surprised that DC didn't give her and/or John Ostrander Green Lantern after Duursema started doing a little work for DC again (Earth 2: World's End, Convergence: Nightwing/Oracle), particularly since DC seemed to be going in a very Star Wars-esque direction with the book after their "DCYou" initiative, and Duursema (and/or Ostrander) were no longer doing Star Wars comics as they had been doing for years, when Dark Horse held the license.
*Hey, just out of curiosity, has a woman ever drawn Amazing Spider-Man...?
