Overview

The Early Years subseries relates the origins of the sprawling world of Dungeon, in the much anticipated relaunch of the popular series

The Early Years subseries relates the origins of the sprawling world of Dungeon. In this first story, you will see the Keeper barely an adult leaving his family to go find fortune in a time of chaos and darkness... Fun, adventure, suspense and... wry satire. Hyacinthe, Dungeon Keeper to be, continues to render justice in a cloak nightly as The Night Shirt and stumbles upon the one he pines for, Alexandra, an assassin, about to be raped! After his valiant and heroic rescue, his wettest dreams come true… with dire consequences. In the second story which happens quite a few years later, he's married and a poor husband, worse even, a poor lover, until Alexandra plots to gain him back. Cloak and dagger with romantic bravura! And you thought he didn't have it in him. Art by Eisner nominated Blain (Gus) and story by legendary Trondheim and Eisner nominated Sfar (Rabbi's Cat).

Reviews

 "The humor can be biting and sly. And precisely because it is so light and warmhearted, the moments of melancholy and actual profundity reach into your chest, pull out your heart and keep it hostage." —The New York Times Book Review

"Dungeon comics -- that's a big inspiration for me and the crew who write on the show. Dungeon's a great comic, and I look to it for the sort of casual conversation they have with the big fantasy world that they all live in." —Adventure Time's Pendleton Ward
