What is it about?

Art by Mikkel Sommer

If the dungeon would be hell, even the devil would call “the ramp” a bad neighborhood. And this is right where PINKY, a young, hairless werewolf has to solve his first case as an officer of the Dungeon Police. He soon finds himself not only out of his depth but also in the middle of a great conspiracy. A new magic substance swamps the dungeon leading to a series of crimes, that make it even less a place worth living in. The dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Dungeon Police.
These are their stories.

Dungeon Police is a Police Comedy Drama for young adults. The dungeon is a place full of creatures of low moral standards and sometimes even lower intellects. It is a dark, dirty, delightful stronghold of sin, crime and weird smells.
One of those weird smells is Pinky, our main character. He thinks his calling is to bring justice to this world full of inequality, racism and monsters. With his colleagues Ulna, Emryck and Rina, the teenager tries to solve a major crime case. Together they investigate and find out not only about a conspiracy but also about themselves, their place in the world and what the word family really means.
