DUNGEON PARADE, Vol.1
“A Dungeon Too Many”
by Joann Sfar, Lewis Trondheim, and Manu Larcenet
Dungeon is back with another one of its branches: Parade, with art by Manu (Ordinary Victories) Larcenet!
Dungeon is a mighty castle filled with monsters, trolls and goblins. The Parade branch of this great saga happens between the first and second volumes of Zenith and presents light, humorous stories of the adventures of Marvin the vegetarian dragon and Herbert the Timorous.
In this volume, the ultimate horror: Dungeon has competition! Right in front of their noses, another dungeon has sprung up and is attracting away the adventurers Dungeon makes a lucrative business of luring (and then plundering and massacring). Unacceptable! Marvin and Herbert are on the case.

Here's what they've said about the last one (Dungeon Twilight 2):
"As much as I've enjoyed the other Dungeon series, I think Dungeon Twilight is my favorite to date. It's probably because Dungeon Twilight finds a way to balance whimsy and serious drama that gives the reader everything they could possibly need. Here's hoping that more albums are produced before too long, because with each new volume of Dungeon translated into English, I find myself loving the line more and more." — Greg McElhatton, Readaboutcomics.com
"This Dungeon installment is a rollercoaster of action, adventure, and laughs. Fans waiting on the edge of their seats since Dragon Cemetery: Dungeon: Twilight 1 shouldn't be disappointed." — Booklist
By Richard Moore
Ever since Michael Paris inherited a cemetery full of monsters, his life has been one mad adventure after another. In this issue, the future of the Boneyard gang depends on Michael and the lovely vampire Abbey making a good impression at the Illuminary’s grand ball, but the scheming demon Lilith has slipped the Abbey a mickey. Desperate to save the evening and make a good impression, Michael plans to use the witch Hildy's magic and the demon Glump's mad science to "remote control" Abbey through their meeting with the Illuminary. Seriously. That's the best plan they've got.
