Sfar, Trondheim, Blain - Dungeon - The Early Years Volume 2 Innocence Lost

This is the darkest and most cynical of all the Dungeon Series. Hyacinthe, who will become the dungeon keeper in the later series goes from being a courageous hero and defender of the weak and powerless to being a bloated murdererous assassin. We get to see all the things that made him into the cynical dungeon keeper of the later books. The art by Blain (see above) is very dark with awesome use of different colours on each page to set the mood. It's very enjoyable especially if you have read the later books and want to know why things are like they are. The books really build up together into an amazingly complex world.
