Omnivoracious on 5 years of Dungeon

It’s true, we haven’t made that much about it, but with Dungeon Zenith, vol.3, we reached a milestone: 10 volumes, 5 years of publishing the series.

Omnivoracious, the book blog on Amazon is good to right that wrong with columnist Jeff VanderMeer saying:

“One of my great reading pleasures this decade has been the discovery of Dungeon in the lovely little volumes from NBM Publishing, which provides English translations of this near-iconic series originally released in France. This month, you could do worse than check out the whole series, as NBM is celebrating five years of Dungeon with the tenth volume, Zenith: Back in Style.

Dungeon is the brainchild of French geniuses Joann Sfar and Lewis Trondheim. Part of their brilliance in creating these books is to both send-up the heroic fantasy genre and provide one of the most compelling arguments for its relevance.

I’d be content just to have the next ten translated in, oh, I don’t know, the next six months. Short of that happening, I’ll have to console myself by re-reading the existing ten…”

Oy, go easy on us.
