[CAR-PGa] Sunny Rolls the Dice

Eisner Award-winning, three-time Newbery Honor recipient children's book / comic writer and her brother make graphic novel about playing D&D as kids in the '70s. Apparently does have a slight message of "Do what's fun, not what you think will make you look like a cool kid" w/r/t D&D. The usual. Here's someone else's review; I haven't read it myself: http://librarycomic.com/graphic-novel-review-sunny-rolls-the-dice/

[CAR-PGa] More new materials

I've seen Kate Bullock's recent blog post on sexism (part 1) was put on the list of "new materials". Thanks for that. I'd like to add two other blog posts by another person I admire, Anna Kreider:

https://gomakemeasandwich.wordpress.com/2019/08/14/gencon-2019-learned-community-helplessness-and-the-benefits-of-actually-banning-predators/
https://gomakemeasandwich.wordpress.com/2019/08/19/on-forgiveness-and-the-messiness-of-who-gets-to-access-it/

Only just today I became aware of an Austrian dissertation dealing with RPGs:

Simone Gadocha-Gangl: Das Wirkmodell von Fantasy-Rollenspielen basierend auf dem Cognitive-Affective-Processing-System. Salzburg 2017. https://eplus.uni-salzburg.at/4363598 ; urn:nbn:at:at-ubs:1-1270
Here's the English abstract: https://eplus.uni-salzburg.at/obvusbhs/content/pageview/4364784
