In addition to fronting Self Defense Family, Drug Church, and other bands, Patrick Kindlon co-hosts the Axe To Grind podcast and he's also co-authored some graphic novels, including We Can Never Go Home and Nobody Is In Control. He has now teamed up with artist Goran Gligovic for a new graphic novel, Run The Dungeon, which comes with a soundtrack by Self Defense Family.
"Being trapped in a scary stone labyrinth got entirely too dark and serious for me the past decade. I found myself wanting to read a proper 2nd Edition D&D style dungeon crawl. Where death is looming, but your job is to laugh in its face," says Patrick. "Goran’s work inspired me to actually write what I’d been imagining, because he perfectly captures the energy of good-natured adventure. His art makes me feel like I’m in a basement with friends, arguing the effectiveness of the magic missile spell. Building Self Defense Family into the project came naturally as these were ideas we’d been talking about for some time while Chris expanded into composing music for TV. Run The Dungeon is the result of these two things colliding into a complete storytelling experience for me, and I think for readers as well."
