Monkey Squad One #13. Pages 2 & 3.

It's hard to come up to with stuff to say when the whole 2 pages is just one image with four word balloons! So...

This issue begins my first ever six-issue story arc. 
I've got to admit, it's pretty daunting, but it's been a total blast.

The title A Hero Never Dies as well as Where A Good Man Goes (and the subsequent story titles in this arc) are all stolen from some of my favorite Hong Kong action movies from the 90's. All of them are highly recommended!

Monkey Squad One #13. Cover, P.I.P. & Page 1.

I mean, really it's been 11 months but ONE YEAR LATER is close enough!

Thanks for coming back for issue 13 of Monkey Squad One!

How about that cover? One reviewer said the thing in the middle looked like it might be a piece of shit. Another said the cover was some clouds and a couple of triangles (or something to that effect).

But as we find out on page 1, that piece of shit is actually U.N.C.L.E. Doug's headstone.

A little more on that next week.

I totally stole the ONE YEAR LATER bars for page one from Brian Bendis' ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN which is statistically my favorite comic book of all-time.

ONE YEAR LATER was also one of my favorite DC events back in the day.

Thanks for reading!

Monkey Squad One Annual #2 Special Features!

Monkey Squad One Annual #2 was such a big project that I recruited the help of my best friend Joe Metro.  After I finished all of the artwork, Joe organized & ran a successful Kickstarter campaign. We were funded in less than 24 hours and ended up going $1000 over our goal!

The following Special Features are all things I drew that weren't for the issue itself.

Like that image above was the main promo issue for the campaign.

Below is the design for the first-ever Monkey Squad One t-shirt!

(Omega-Homie, Sean Fagan photoshopped the t-shirt mock-up below because I'm still awful at computers.)
Below is the Trik-EZ pic I drew when the Kickstarter campaign hit $1000 on Day 2.

The following are a few of the 11x17" commissions I did as Kickstarter rewards!

 Thanks for reading!

I'll be taking a few weeks off before posting MS1 #13!

Monkey Squad One Annual #2. Pages 31, 32, Inside Back Cover & Back Cover.


That's Monkey Squad One Annual #2 folks!

I hope you had a good time! 

I'd like to take this opportunity to make a special announcement:

As of right now, I'm inking & coloring pages for an all-new 8 page story that will be featured in the upcoming Monkey Squad One Vol. 1 trade paperback collection!

I've once again teamed up with Joe Metro & Fatman/littleboy Press to launch a Kickstarter campaign to pay for printing costs on this full comic-size collection of the first seven issues of Monkey Squad One! 

If you've enjoyed MS1, here, on my terrible website, then you owe it to yourself to check out this easy to read version with flippable pages!

I'll post more news here in the coming weeks!

Monkey Squad One Annual #2. Pages 28, 29 & 30.

I don't wanna talk to much about the last page of Infinite Romantic? because along with being a glimpse into the past, it's also basically a road-map to the end of the series, so I'm just gonna move along!

Fish Girls Don't Cry is probably my favorite story in the Annual. It has no plot points or story progression. Just a little characterization & vomit!

Monkey Squad One Annual #2. Pages 26 & 27.

Waaaaay back in 2010, when I was working on MS1 #4, my good friend Peter Von Zur Muehlen helped me out by letting me bounce some story ideas off of him. I decided then that I'd get him in MS1 as a sort-of Doctor Who rip-off.

It took me 10 issues and 4 years but, it was totally worth it! Current readers know that we see Dr. Von Von Zur Zoom again soon & he'll have a big role as MS1 reaches it's ending!
