DUNGEON: Twilight, Vol. 1
Joann SFAR & Lewis TRONDHEIM
The planet Terra Amata, on which Dungeon resides, has stopped turning. On one side, total darkness and absolute coldness; on the other, a searing desert and eternal day. The survivors live on a thin slice of earth where day and night meet. A territory known as TWILIGHT.
Welcome to the third facet of the Dungeon world, its dark downfall. Marvin, now old and blind, sensing his end, goes on a long trek to the legendary cemetery of dragons.
"Dungeon parodies heroic fantasy in hilarious fashion while also offering exciting battle scenes, deep and interesting characters and a complex plot. If you like fantasy, humor, or intrigue, this series is for you. One scene in particular will make your jaw drop in appreciation of amazing imagination at play here." -Realms of Fantasy
"A rollicking adventure, an anthropomorphic fantasy crammed with monsters, magic, swordplay, extravagant derring-do, exuberant violence, extraordinary occurrences and remarkable happenstance. It's part road comedy and part three-way buddy romp featuring a dragon, a rabbit and a bat. When compared directly to Aragones' own barbarian comic Groo, these funnies are woollier, bloodier, riskier, less morally or thematically constrained." -The Comics Journal
"Astonishing piece of entertainment, full of wonderful characters, wild action, and more twists and turns to the plot than you can shake a stick at. I love this book; you will too." -Movie poopshoot.com
"Sfar and Trondheim effortlessly sweep you into their breezy adventures."
"Although this volume comes late in the Dungeon time line, it is as good as any of the others for series newcomers." -Booklist
