Source Point Press has announced a brand new monthly four-issue comic book mini-series, Monstrous, with the first issue hitting stores and Comixology February 17th. A 30-day Kickstarter campaign was launched January 1st by Editor-in-Chief Travis McIntire to allow readers the chance to pre-order all four of the issues.
MONSTERS, ROBOTS, AND IGOR WITH A SHOTGUN! “Inspired noir wackiness!” – Michael Kupperman, Tales Designed to Thrizzle
You’ve heard the story of Dr. Frankenstein and his monster before. You know they tried to kill each other. But it didn’t work. Now, Frankenstein has built robots, his monster has built more monsters, and the world will never be the same. Monstrous tells the tales of everyday monsters, robots, and townspeople caught up in the changes sweeping across Europe in the wake of Dr. Frankenstein’s mad science. But even in this twisted landscape, our unconventional heroes—giant rabbit monsters, steam-powered cyborgs, and babysitting bank robbers—all try to live by their own code of honor. So fire up your steampunk rocket-sled and jump on board!
A ONE-OF-A-KIND CREATION (ASSEMBLED IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT!)
Monstrous is the freak show brainchild of writer Greg Wright (Wild Bullets, Last Monster Standing) and artist Ken Lamug (The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories, A Box Story). “It’s not like any other comic available today. It takes classic monster characters—like Dr. Frankenstein, Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster, and Igor—and gives them a fresh jolt of electricity. This world features steam-powered robots, voodoo magic, and more blaster fights than you can shake a lightning rod at. Plus, whatever your tastes, there is something in these books to get excited about: jokes, adventures, chills, mysteries, and more!” says Wright.
“Monstrous is what you get when you mix a genuine love for monsters and myth with the unsettling excitement of a fever dream. Greg Wright and Ken Lamug have built a mad and macabre world here, brick by twisted brick, leaving nothing outside the realm of possibility. It’s inventive and fun, as much as it is peculiar in the best way.” – Ryan Ferrier, D4VE and Curb Stomp
