Synopses & Reviews
The next two stories in this tongue-in-cheek Fantasy/Horror series. In the first, Herbert's fictitious Princess in distress to lure more hapless warriors to the Dungeon turns out to be all too real and quite a handful! In the second, the Dungeon's Dragon, centerpiece of its defense, is dead, long live the...wait, where will they find the replacement?
"The second volume of this popular French adventure series offers more of the lighthearted, goofy adventures that fans have become accustomed to from Sfar and Trondheim. Sfar has described the Dungeon series as 'Conan the Barbarian meets The Muppet Show,' which just about sums it up, but doesn't adequately convey the series' added delights. The setting a dungeon run for profit by an eclectic crew of fantasy characters is broad enough to encompass all kinds of adventures and personalities. This volume includes two stories, the longest involving a headstrong princess who sneaks into the dungeon to prove herself to her father, and winds up falling in love and having quite an adventure. Later in the book, the dungeon's guardian dragon dies, so a replacement is recruited. Both of these plots allow for numerous asides and, of course, action. The mood runs from whimsical to scary in a matter of pages but never loses its light feel. The artwork is wonderfully detailed cartooning assured, inventive and always fun to read."

"Innumerable laughs. Deserves a place on the shelf of any lover of sword-and-sorcery or parody or both." Asimov's
"It's one of the best comedy/adventure comics in print, filled with amusing characters, great visual imagination and involving stories. You should let it take you away on the back of a hipplodontus." Time.comix
"Trondheim is a master a presenting a rich, detailed world, while maintaining a light atmosphere. The book has an overall epic feel, yet grounds itself with a very personable feel when necessary. The coloring is vibrant and lush, and complements the grandiose backgrounds. A truly unique enjoyable book." Buzzscope.com
