The Blackgaard Chronicles is a brand-new book series based on the escapades of Dr. Regis Blackgaard, an infamous Adventures in Odyssey villain and longtime nemesis of Mr. Whittaker. The books will of course feature scenes that happened in the radio drama, but they will also explore never-before-revealed events which went on behind the scenes. If you thought you knew the whole Blackgaard story, be prepared to find out a whole lot more. The first novel, titled Opening Moves, is written by AIO co-creator Phil Lollar and will be released in stores in September. Are you planning on picking up a copy? Let us know in the comments section.
