Now, Ivro and the remaining members of his brigade must wage a new and different war, for their own survival. But where did this mist come from, and what terrible secret lies at its heart? Will Ivro be able to reunite his brigade and lead them to safety while this strange land grows ever stranger…

This book tells the story of a brigade of dwarves that only seem to not want to kill each other when Ivro, their leader, is around.

This book’s art is amazing, the drawing style is different from everything else I’ve read and the colours are vividly wonderful.

The cast of characters is as interesting as their design.

The plot itself is unique; I’ve never read anything like that.

This book features several gags in which the author’s dogs are middle-aged men, just like the title suggests.

The book’s art is simple and clean.

The gags are, in a word, hilarious.
