Tässä kirjassa todella menetetään viattomuus useammalla kuin yhdellä tavalla. Kolme ja puoli tähteä supistuu kolmeksi, kun Hyacinthe-pingviini seikkailee naismaailmassa, saa taudin, pelastaa tamman pahoilta jäniksiltä, haikailee rakastamansa salamurhaaja-Alexandran perään, hautaa vaimonsa, polttaa mitä eriskummallisimpia tuntemuksia aiheuttavia tupakkalaatuja (lahja tontuilta) ja sekaantuu kaupungin sorruttavaan metroprojektiin. Seksiä ja väkivaltaa luvassa tässä elukoiden täyttämässä sarjakuvar ...more

Excellent. Blain is a great choice as artist on this stuff, and the combination of the darker tone and the wacky action really works well.

Surprisingly sexually explicit, or maybe not "explicit" but there's a lot more sex than you'd expect from the run of the mill "funny animal" book (though I think that Dungeon transcends that genre in almost every possible way).

Another plus is that these "early years" stories escape the overly-complex chronology found in the other books, where you often feel l

This one covers a lot of time, and sort of jumps the story forward a bit. I kind of wish it had moved a little more slowly, I would have liked more adventures of the Night Shirt. That said, this is still great stuff, as we start to really see the tragic events that lead to Hyacinthe's rise (decline?) from vigilante hero to master of the Dungeon. (What, it's not a spoiler, you knew that was coming, right?)

Soubor dvou příběhů. První je o opovrženíhodných králících, muňkách a právnících. A i navzdory několika výtečným scénám není nic moc. Druhý se odehrává po letech, v době zániku metropole a i navzdory několika výtečným scénám (průlet zničeným městem a rozpad společnosti především) není nic moc. Ano, chápete zcela správně, že toto album navzdory několika výtečným scénám není nic moc.
This had a lot more adult themes than I'd expected. Hyacinth "The Nightshirt" gets a social disease, rescues a fair mare(?) from some lawless rabbits, is rescued by his lady fair, and smokes all kinds of substances to enhance his powers. Hyacinth definitely loses some innocence points in this installment.

More wonderful convoluted adventures with colorful art, humor and great characters! For mature readers. ;)
OMG, was I ever appalled to find this in the children's section. I'm very fond of Dungeon, but way too much sex, swearing and so on for the children's section.

They like to lull you with all the volumes that are funny and clever and charming, only to spring on you with the occasional sad or upsetting ones!

The authors skip years (if not decades) of the Keeper's life between the two stories, but in doing so, we lose out on his transformation. Too much left unsaid.

Being greedy for more of these characters and their evolution, I wish there wasn't the big jump in time in the middle of the book. It's great to finally have some more of this story.
