Great news for what has undoubtedly been a incredibly successful new licensed property.
Munchkin—the game where you do whatever it takes to win, whether it’s backstabbing your own mum or befriending your worst enemy—is now a comic, and the twists and turns are just as unpredictable as the game. In issue #2, Spyke and Flower are taking on the Wight Brothers’ dungeon in the first part of “Might Makes Wight” by Tom Siddell (Gunnerkrigg Court) and Ian McGinty (Bravest Warriors), and we take a moment to learn something new in “The Ecology of the Floating Nose” written by Jim Zub (Wayward) and drawn by Rian Sygh (BOOM! Box 2014 Mix Tape).Praise for the Munchkin comic:“It’s like a machine gun just delivering you the humor. Once it’s done with one joke, bam! Another is already hitting you. It’s very chaotic and fun just like the game itself.” – Comic Bastards“Buy the book, laugh out loud, backstab your friends, and steal their exclusive Go Up A Level card.” – Major Spoilers
“Read, laugh at the crazy characters and clever wordplay, and maybe learn something about yourself as a fan and a person.” – Geeked Out Nation“…this is definitely a recommended purchase, for fans of the game in particular (each first print edition of the comic comes with a collectible Munchkin game card, folks!) as well as fans of, well, laughing in general.” – Big Comic Page
