The Dungeon series tells the story of a massive dungeon, with sub-series telling stories from it's creation to it's downfall. Built by monsters, for monsters, the Dungeon serves as a way to bring adventurers from all over to die in the most efficient manner possible. The Dungeon Monstres series focuses on background adventures experienced by some of the secondary characters. In this volume we have two stories, the first being a tale of William Delacour, a scam-artist chicken, and his fateful meeting with the sweet, simple-minded monster, John-John the Terror. The second tells the story of the wizard Alcibiades, ordered by the ruler of the Dungeon to stop the wizard's magical eye from flooding the dungeon with its incessant crying.

From official release/information:

From back of book: Welcome to the branch of the Dungeon focusing on the great adventures of secondary characters presented by leading guest artists. In this volume, Jean-Christophe Menu, well-known as the head of the highly influential publishing co. L'Association, presents Alcibiacies the wizard in The Crying Giant where his all-seeing giant's eye cannot stop crying, flooding the entire dungeon. They must find the Giant who gave his eye to remedy this rather wet situation. Mazan also presents the story of John-John the Terror, the monster split into two living halves.
