"The Last Session is a story that places equal emphasis on the in-game tale and the “real world” story, creating a narrative that that is utterly irresistible."
— Avery Kaplan
"Readers looking for a story about how friendships are meant to grow & evolve, regardless of how firmly fixed a given circle might be, may find a lot to love here."
— The Pullbox
"With art that screams animation, Dozerdraws brings writer Jasmine Walls' story to the page with charm and whimsy. Between that and Walls' skill of capturing the fear and uncertainty of [the players] moving on with their lives, the story is extremely relatable and well told."
— Geek Vibes Nation
"A fun, and cozy look at friendships and how they form and develop through the lens of D&D. [...] The characters feel like real people, and I felt an immediate attachment to them when I started reading this story. The art is lovely and celebrates the diversity of the group with living, breathing characters. If you’re a member of a longtime TTRPG group or just like nerdy interpersonal relationship stories, then this one is worth your money."
