NBM in February: More DUNGEON Monstres

logo

New to the DUNGEON series? Want to relive great moments before the release of DUNGEON MONSTRES VOL. 6? This month’s Diamond Previews samples some of the best the Dungeon series, and French comic artists as a whole, have to offer.

 

DUNGEON: Monstres tells stories of the secondary characters in the series, each drawn by a different well-known French artist. These stories can be read as standalone, but when read  in conjunction with the series, the overall takeaway is more enriching.

DUNGEON: Monstres, Vol.2
The Dark Lord
Joann SFAR, Lewis TRONDHEIM, BLANQUET, ANDREAS

Terra Amata has exploded into so many little floating islands and Herbert has become a very dark and very powerful lord, far from his goofy, shoot-from-the-belt self we all know. In both stories in this volume, the key is to find the map to the new world and great forces are in the way. Whether it’s the Dark Lord or even a very uncompromising and very determined Marvin the Red, the new map must be found!
This sub-series presents guest stars including here Andreas, known for Rork and Capricorn.
6 x9, 96pp., full color trade paperback, $12.95,
ISBN 978-1-56163-540-5

DUNGEON: Monstres
Vol. 3: Heartbreaker
Joann Sfar, Lewis Trondheim, Carlos Nine, Patrice Killoffer

In the first title story, the supremely talented (especially with women) and outrageous Carlos Nine gives us the complete low-down on the sexy and dangerous killer Alexandra that the young Dungeon-keeper fell for so heavily. In the second, Killoffer (“676 Apparitions of Killoffer”) also focuses on a spicy girl, daughter of a prominent character.
6 x 9, 96pp. full color trade pb.: $12.99, ISBN 978-1-56163-591-7

DUNGEON Monstres
Vol. 4: Night of the Ladykiller
Joann Sfar, Lewis Trondheim,
J-E. Vermot-Desroches, Yoann
Vulture sorcerer Horus, a ladykiller? Who knew? Yet, as the first story in this volume shows, he is accused of impregnating a slew of women. The second story takes a much lighter tone starring Grogro the big always hungry goofball seen in many stories before, especially in the Parade series. Here, he’s the hero, or at least tries to be, on a mission to fix a mess with a bunch of beer brewers. Question is: will he solve the problem… or just eat (and drink) it?
6 1/2 x 9, 96pp., full color trade pb.: $14.99, ISBN 978-1-56163-608-2

DUNGEON Monstres vol.5

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 his 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!
6 ½ x 9, 96 pp., trade pb., $14.99; ISBN 9781561639373

Review Round-Up! ZOMBILLENIUM Vol. 3! DUNGEON MONSTRES V. 5!

reviewnbm

Here’s what the critics are saying:

ZOMBILLENIUM Vol. 3: Control Freaks by Arthur de Pins

 

 

“Arthur de Pins has crafted another gorgeous addition to the fabulous Zombillenium series…With clever, witty writing and exquisite, imaginative art, the undead have never seemed more human.”

Foreword Reviews

Zombillenium is a horror comedy that occasionally gets a little bit dark. The writing is clever, the stories feature some of the most fun and personable monsters imaginable…I love Zombillenium and recommend it for readers of all ages.”

Tony’s Tips, Blog of Wonder (on Volume 2: Gretchen)

DUNGEON Monstres, vol.5: My Son the Killer by Joann Sfar, Lewis Trondheim, Blutch, Frederic Bezian

 

 

“Sarcastic, funny, and sometimes brilliantly appalling, these books will appeal to fans of fantasy without happy endings, and without any continuity needed for understanding the story. Sex, violence, death, and sophisticated dilemmas make this two-story volume and others in the subseries for older teens and adults.”

NBM in June: More Dungeon Monstres

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.
