Knights Of The Lunch Table: The Dragon Players Graphic Novel Review

Author: Frank Cammuso
Series: Knights Of The Lunch Table
Ages: 9-12

The Dragon Players is the second book in author/cartoonist Frank Cammuso's Knights of the Lunch Table series. Set to launch this September, this is a great sequel to the first book in the series, which is called The Dodgeball Chronicles. With its brightly colored cover and several pages of full-colour cartoons at the front of the book (the rest are drawn in black and white), we could tell this would be a fun read from the very start.

The Story

This book stars Artie King, who, like the rest of the elements in the book represents some character or situation from the Legends of King Arthur – only schoolyard-style. In the last book Artie opened the eternally stuck but magic locker (his sword in the stone) and in this book, his science teacher Mr. Merlyn returns to help him and his pals with the school's Dragon Days robot contest.

Facing the gang again are the school bullies (known as the "Horde"), which forces Artie to turn for help to Evo, a former winner of the contest. It's another fast-paced tale where Artie overcomes adversity through ingenuity and a little help from others.

The Art

Frank Cammuso is a really good cartoonist. The art is active, entertaining and a lot of times just plain funny!

    my quote is REALLY LONG...   "strength is the only thing that matters in this world. everything else is just an illusion for the weak... stop pretending! knock off that sentimental rubbish! harden your heart! you fool! you have to put aside your mercy... then you might.. MIGHT actually stand a chance! stop trying to convince yourself! HOW DARE YOU GIVE UP! Reach down deep! Take some pride in your heritage! There is only ONE certainty in life... A STRONG PERSON STANDS ABOVE AND CONQUERS ALL! There is no denying what you are... Just wait and see. The more we fight, the more powerful we become!! DON'T TELL ME YOU'RE STILL PREACHING THAT MERCY NONSENSE, THAT MEANS YOU'RE STILL HOLDING BACK! NO MORE WEAK HEARTED EXCUSES! THE STRONGEST WILL FIND A WAY TO SURVIVE, AND THE WEAKEST SHALL PERISH! is that the kind of fate you want for yourself?! ENOUGH! listen to me! You keep running with that self righteous look on your face! Pitiful... Its brute strength that detirmins the outcome of a battle, not goodness! WHY ARE WE SUBJECTING OURSELVES TO THIS? You've always been like this.. you show MERCY to everyone... Even your fiercest enemy's... live every moment of everyday for the singular purpose to meet the next challenge... Even if its bigger than you! test your limits.. push futher beyond! Push yourself to be the strongest there is...."   From dragonball z, vegeta
