Dungeon Monstres 4: “Incredibly unpredictable”
Dungeon Monstres 4 get s a couple reviews:
“The DUNGEON books never let the reader down- they show you grand ideas, they make you laugh, they hold your interest, they put the work of amazing artists in front of you- to ask more of comics would be greedy. If there’s a sure bet in the world of graphic novels, DUNGEON is it. Volume four of MONSTRES is as good a place to start as any.”
“The world is kind of like Lord of the Rings meets mid-Tom Baker Doctor Who meets nothing you’ve ever read before. If that gives you the impression that these are some awesomely weird and fun stories, you’re absolutely right.
Nothing can give you an idea of the incredibly unpredictable way this story ambles and twists and turns. It alternates, in very surprising ways, between slapstick, high drama, gross-out moments, a touch of romance and a bit of horror.
The pair [of stories] are a nice contrast to each other in this book. Horus is a genius who finds himself freed from his brain by the physical fate that’s flung upon him while Grogro is an idiot who’s forced to use at least a little bit of his limited brain power to make changes in his world.
Altogether this combination makes the book a real treat to read. Each story is a real treat on its own, but together they make a fascinating and charming contrast to each other. This book is an awesomely wonderful introduction to the shared Dungeon universe if you’ve never encountered it before. Once you visit the Dungeon you’ll want to revisit it again and again.”
