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!

PREPARE YOUR FACE!!!

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







So..

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!

MONKEY SQUAD INFINITY!

Monkey Squad One Annual #2 Pin-Up Gallery Part 4!


Sean Fagan is a Comic Ronin. He uses yarn for staples.



I met Bill Haders on Twitter in 2011. I met him in Real Life last year at the awesome Cincy Comicon that he helps organize! Bill is obviously a very talented artist as well! Check out his art here and holler at him on twitter!


NEXT WEEK:

AN ACTUAL COMIC WITH MONKEY SQUAD ONE IN IT!

Monkey Squad One Annual #2 Pin-Up Gallery Part 3!



Yay!

The Senorita Isa and Dr. Metropolis piece was drawn by Senorita Isa herself, Joe Metro's Real Life 15 year old niece, Isabelle. 

Along the way, a couple artists had to drop out of the Pin-Up Gallery (which I totally understand as artists are nut-jobs) and Isa was awesome enough to jump right in and hook up this fantastic piece!

The bottom piece was produced by one of my favorite comic makers working today, Zack Empire!
I've been friends with Zack since 2011 when I first got online & we've been trading comics ever since. Hit Zack up for a copy of one of his great comics like Jerkface, Ugly People, Camp Trails, Lonewolf or Beach Story and I'm sure he'll hook it up!
