Clever and funny, Munchkin #2 from BOOM! Box was a complete pleasure to read. Like last month, we have a few stories to enjoy in one issue. Might Makes Wight Part 1, written by Tom Siddell, illustrated by Ian McGinty, with colors by Fred Stresing, and The Ecology of the Floating Nose, written by Jim Zub, illustrated by Rian Sygh.
Might Makes Wight Part 1 focuses on two Munchkins and their adventures through the Wight Brothers' Dungeon. The best part about this short tale, is the humor throughout the script. Tom Siddell adds a ton of small detail to enhance the characters dialogue, which makes for a memorable reading experience. Ian McGinty's art style is fun, and illustrated in the classic Munchkin style that fans of the table top board game will recognize. The Munchkins encounter many obstacles, but they aren't the typical obstacles you'd expect to see in a dungeon setting. For example, there's a dungeon casino! I also greatly appreciate moments when characters acknowledge that they are in a comic. I won't ruin the surprise for you, but it's an entertaining one.
The Ecology of the Floating Nose is as strange as it sounds! Yep, we get a colorful illustration from Rian Sygh on the ins and outs of the nose. Jim Zub's narration is like watching the National Geographic channel talk about lions, except the entire thing follows a nose. It's hilariously brilliant! I couldn't stop laughing as I read, especially when I encountered the panels about the "Nosey Courting Ceremony." Overall, I find this Munchkin comic to be highly entertaining and I love that we are able to experience multiple stories in each issue. Don't miss out on the originality and laughter in Munchkin #2.
