It’s Tuesday which means it’s time for Crossroads Comics!
This week we’re taking a look at PMD: Anamnesis. This comic is unique among most Pokémon Mystery Dungeon comics in that it is a collection of story stories that tell different stories inspired by different aspects of the franchise. These stories come from a variety of inspirations, including rmysterydungeon prompts, reader prompts, and even ancient Chinese literature. This is one of my favorite mystery dungeon comics since each story is unique, with some of the early stories exploring different parts of the franchise, such as joining a rescue team or when the player eventually disappears. More recent stories have been a bit more complex, exploring what happens when the hero dies or what a player’s purpose can be. They’re all very interesting to read, especially for those who like to see stories that push the boundaries on what a mystery dungeon story can be. The typically gray scale art style also really accentuates the stories, especially those with more morbid elements to them like the most recent story, Zaffre, or sadder stories like the first one, Stardust. It’s a recipe that lends itself to really interesting stories that explore emotions and topics you don’t usually see in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon comics.
