As usual, the writing is well-tooled and funny, with just the right touch of absurdity. The guest artists have a deft hand, though they don’t stray far from the usual Dungeon style.

“Sfar & Trondheim get a huge chuckle out of subverting the genre and paying tribute to it- sometimes in the same panel. This new installment fully lives up to the praise Dungeon has garnered from sources as various as Asimov’s SF magazine and The New York Times Book Review.” Jeff Vandermeer in Realms of Fantasy […]
