Monkey Squad One Annual #2. Pages 6 & 7.



Who is Professor Metropolis?

Watchful readers know he first appeared back in MS1 #10 in a flashback with U.N.C.L.E. Kevin.

Also in MS1 #10 we first met Malcolm Bliss and his giant ant, MonsANTo. And throughout the adventure, Malcolm Bliss kept calling Dr. Metropolis, "Professor Metropolis".

But this is the first time we've found out that Professor Metropolis and Malcolm Bliss are from the same Earth.

And some readers might've realized that Professor Metropolis & Malcolm Bliss are then from the same Earth as Fake-Future Brendan & his whole crew that Monkey Squad One visited all the way back in issue #3.

I'm not gonna tell you why that matters, though.

Monkey Squad One Annual #2. Pages 4 & 5.



From "The Heavenly Kid" to "Can't Buy Me Love", the clothes-changing-montage is a staple of shitty 80's movies & I LOVE me some shitty 80's movies!

But since I don't know anything about fashion, all of the boys outfits are just copied off of popular current rappers.

To find out what happens with Logan's sweatpants, check out Monkey Squad One #10 on the side-scroll dealy on the right!!

Monkey Squad One Annual #2. Pages 2 & 3.




I really like how this sequence turned out in the end, but drawing the interior of a department store is a pain in the ass!

Also, there really are $17,000 alligator boots made by Gucci.

Monkey Squad One Annual #2! Cover, P.I.P. & Page 1!




I'M BACK, BABY!!

(unless you're reading this later and to you no time has really passed)

Regular readers may have noticed I've been on a bit of a hiatus since June. I was moving & finishing up Monkey Squad One #13!

Moving was horrible but the new issue turned out great, so it all worked out! As of this post, I'm halfway finished with the pencils on MS1 #14 (and in the living room of our new home!)!

So, anyway! Monkey Squad One Annual #2!
BUK! BUK! BUK! BUK! BUK!

Originally this issue was all supposed to be fallout from the end of MS1 #12. But I soon realized that the road Monkey Squad One is headed down is awfully dark and it doesn't end until the series finale. So, if there was gonna be anymore opportunity for fun, this may be it.

SO I HAD A BLAST!

This issue has all the stuff on the cover plus MUCH MORE! Including revelations that go back to the beginning of the series & FURTHER!

This was also the issue I did a Kickstarter for with my best friend Joe Metro. It was wildly successful (if you ask me). We made enough extra money to print MS1 #13 and not have to charge anybody for it. Which is exactly how I like it.

So much so, that we've decided to do another Kickstarter soon!

We're gonna try & fund a full size trade paperback collection of Monkey Squad One #1-6 and Annual #1! With an all new cover & 8 page story! I wanna make enough extra money to print a few more issues!

So stay tuned!

And welcome back!

And thanks for reading!

Trik-Ez says all the horrible shit you've come to expect!

Monkey Squad One #12. Pages 23 & 24, "Apples & Origins" & Back Cover.






Dang, dude.

So, this is basically the end of the first half of MS1. 

The boys are stranded on All-Girl Earth with no U.N.C.L.E. Doug and no Hot Rod Time Machine.

And A.U.N.T., Fake-Future Brendan & GranMonster have beaten Dr. Metropolis and have Logan & Monkey Force One on the run.

Its more depressing than the end of The Empire Strikes Back!

Page 24 marks MS1's graduation from an All-Ages to a Mature Audiences mini-comic. Those of you who've read Annual #2 know this for a fact! There's now cussing in MS1!

Speaking of Annual #2, that's where you'll find the dramatic conclusion to "Apples & Origins" plus a bunch of other stories that are way more fun than this shit.

The back cover was drawn by my good friend, Marcus Kwame Anderson, artist of the incredible SNOW DAZE! Do yourself a favor and read Snow Daze here!

I'm taking a little hiatus from Monkey Squad Monday for a few months! It's no big deal! I'm moving & wrapping up MS1 #13, so I could use a little break before we dive into Anuual #2!

Thanks for reading everybody!

Monkey Squad One #12. Pages 18, 19 & 20.





WWWWHHHHHHOOOOOOAAAAAA!!!!!

Yeah, so, like I've been saying this whole issue, the bald guy is Fake-Future Brendan from issues #2 & #3 come back to take over our Earth or whatever. 

Now, long-time readers may remember Fake-Future Connor and (Fake-Future Brendan's son) Kaz from issues #2 & #3 (Kaz was in Annual #1, too).

And last time we saw Kaz, he was a good-guy.

Dr. Metropolis's tattoo reads, "Blood In, Blood Out". 
Google that shit.

What is Fake-Future Brendan's plan for St. Louis?

You won't find out until 2015 when I finish Monkey Squad One #14!

NEXT WEEK!

THE CRAZIEST SHIT EVER!
