Dragonís Lair (Arcana)

 DRLA   (Arcana, 2006)

ô and © Don Bluth & Arcana Studio

The long-standing Dragonís Lair franchise always had the best-looking video games, which were essentially playable cartoons. Itís good to see it also has some of the best-looking comics, in this Arcana publication with flawless, lively art by Fabio Languna supplemented by the bold colors of MV Creations.

Dirk the Daring and Princess Daphne are attacked by a high-king dragon, who absconds with Daphne back to his homeland. Dirk must rescue the nonetheless-capable princess before she becomes a mind-controlled loveslave like so many before her. With a good sense of humor from Andy Mangles, itís a nice treat of family-friendly fare (assuming youíre OK with a couple panels of evident nipples in a black evening gown).
