We may have seen the end of Dungeon in Twilight Vol. 4, last November.
BUT there are many more stories to tell in this expansive world!
This June, NBM returns to DUNGEON with two more stories from Dungeon lore! DUNGEON MONSTRES retells great adventures of secondary characters. In DUNGEON MONSTRES VOL. 5 witness toddler Marvin the Dragon meet the future Dungeon Keeper for the first time, setting up a partnership for years to come! This and more gruesome exploits of The Night Shirt (from DUNGEON: THE EARLY YEARS) in “My Son the Killer”. Then, in “Soldiers of Honor”, two brothers are put to the test of both blood and loyalty to their army’s cause. What happens next is tragic yet strikingly beautiful in its rendering.
Dungeon creators Lewis Trondheim and Joann Sfar return to provide the script with award winning artists Blutch and Frederic Bezian each illustrating a story.
DUNGEON Monstres, vol.5
My Son the Killer
Joann Sfar, Lewis Trondheim, Blutch, Frederic Bezian
In the title story, we meet Marvin the Dragon still a pup with her Mom but make no mistake, both are formidable. Their ferocity catches the eye of the Keeper who is still making his way up the ladder in Antipolis and has many dangerous enemies. He makes them his bodyguards. Soon enough, crafty little Marvin manages to witness a sinister plot and tries to save the Keeper and the city’s leaders from annihilation.
In “Soldiers of Honor,” Gork and Krag are brothers and soldiers of hell. They keep a secret door in the Dungeon. The door being little used, they get bored, until an old blind man forces Krag, alone on duty that day, to call reinforcements to prevent him from entering. Because he has not fulfilled his mission, Krag is sentenced to be killed by his own brother in the middle of the desert!
