Bundles of Trouble 12 through 16

Jerry Stratton, April 12, 2006

The Knights have been undergoing a lot of changes since I last checked in! Bundle of Trouble Volume 12 starts with the Black Hands in jail, and volume 14 gives us our first Patty’s Perps strips. It’s about time! Patty’s Perps have been tantalizing us in the Who’s Who section since volume eight, with a brief mention in volume 7. By the end of volume 16 I am definitely waiting for more. The Untouchable Trio Plus One has just undergone a huge change, and it can’t last.

On a technical level, Kenzer has thankfully started putting four issues per bundle instead of the three in the previous bundles. (Volume 16 only has three, but it includes the presumably double-sized issue 50.) My bookshelf thanks them.

Tales from the Vault Volume 5 is also out, but I didn’t see it at the comic book store. I did read the main feature on the web, though, and it was pretty damn worth it. Scream of Cachooloo was as hilarious as we’ve come to expect the Knights to be.

Note that these books are linked to Amazon because that’s the way my link system works. However, while they have ISBNs, Kenzer appears to have stopped selling them through standard book distributors. You’ll have to go to the source or to your local gaming or comic book store. Support your local Weird Pete!

In response to Knights of the Dinner Table: A great comic strip about, by, and for gamers.
