Monkey Squad One #5. Cover, P.I.P., Page 1.

Pretty excited to be posting this era of MS1. 
I'm not nearly as embarrassed of this art as I was at the previous issues.
I was happy to be through my first story-arc and dedicated to getting to a zombie-arc, but I had a few loose ends from the 1st 4 issues to tie up. I decided on a 2 part story-arc because some of my favorite comic stories are 2 parters and I wanted to give it a try.
 The cover was a last minute addition. Originally, I intended to use the back cover as the cover (it's the background of this blog at the time I posted this) but I pussed-out in the end because it was non-traditional and I thought it would confuse "readers".
Which is even funnier now, because these days, I'll do whatever the fuck I want in MS1 because it's mine and I'm a fucking genius.

Lemme wrap this up:
Yeah, that's a Superman II gag.
General Starr is played by my dad, Doug Michel. I'm a Junior.
U.N.C.L.E. Travis is still a dick.

Issue #5 continues with more headbutting than ever before!

  1. I like the device that contains him during this beginning of the trial. Reminds me of Superman.

    1. Yeah, I go crazy-bananas with the movie references in this issue, Tom. Superman II was a big deal to me when I was a kid (watched it recently and it's fucking terrible) so when I had a chance to draw a trial, I HAD to hook it up with a nod to ZOD!
