Guillermo's Thoughts: This black-and-white interactive comic book was published by Malibu Comics in 1990. At this time, interest in gamebooks was starting to dwindle in the US, so it is not surprising that the series proved short-lived. This book uses a simple pick-a-path mechanic (no rules) and includes lots of tongue-in-cheek humour. At only 52 pages, the adventure is not terribly challenging, but I had fun with the dungeon crawl elements nonetheless. This is not an essential read, but it is an enjoyable one.
