As the Moon Burned Bright Above

At long last, we're finally back to this!

Chapter Select
Prologue: As the Moon Burned Bright Above
Floors 1-4 (Cave): That's How It All Started
Floors 5-8 (Jungle): A Lush Load to Bear
Floors 9-12 (Ice Cave): The Cold Depths
Floors 13-16 (Temple): In Ruins
Epilogue: Desperate Despot

So, ever heard of Spelunky?

It's a ruthless roguelike-platformer hybrid indie game made by Derek Yu. It was such a smash that it got an updated version on X Box and everything. It's pretty nuts!

This is the reboot of my comic series covering it. The game itself doesn't have a proper storyline, so I have total narrative control (more or less). It bears mentioning that this series follows the original PC version of the game, not its updated counterpart.

Hope you like it! Check out the game if you dare; it's seriously merciless.

I am making a big Spelunky comic too. Except it’s based on the HD game, not the classic one.
Here is the first page (Preview):

Proof that this is not based on the classic one. (Why: There is no Cobras in Spelunky Classic):

I see. That's cool! I plan to do HD as a sequel to this, but I have other series to tackle first.

It's a flare, actually, but I can see why you'd think that.

it lives!

There's precious little I can say about the art and execution, other than that it's of your usual and ever-climbing standards...

I'll take that as a compliment. :3
