Dungeon, Parade I: A Dungeon Too Many is part of a long running fantasy-comedy graphic series and takes place between the two previously published Dungeon, Zenith volumes. The entire series revolves around a fantasy dungeon which caters to adventurers. After all, you didn't think monster infested, treasure filled dungeons functioned as some sort of natural ecosystem, did you? Front and center in this graphic novel are Marvin the Vegetarian Dragon and Herbert the Duck, employees of the Keeper, master of the dungeon, and strangely enough, generally nice guy. From official release/information:
From back of book: The Parade branch of this great saga happens between the 1st and 2nd volumes of Zenith and presents light humorous storiees of the adventures of Marvin the vegetarian dragon warrior 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 then plundering and massacring. Unacceptable! Marvin and Herbert are on the case.
