Last night I came across the Kickstarter campaign for Source Point Press’ new four issue comic mini-series Monstrous: Tales of Valor and Villainy and was intrigued. Monstrous is the brain-child of writer Greg Wright (Wild Bullets, Last Monster Standing) and artist Ken Lamug (The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories, A Box Story).
“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 onboard!”
Their Kickstarter campaign will run through January 31st and offers an array of great perks and exclusive offers. You can even pre-order all four comics for just $20 and pick up the digital copies for only $7! Dr. Frankenstein, vampires, werewolves, zombies, cyborgs, and more, what more could you want? Let’s not forget the great story-line and fantastic artwork that fill the pages of Monstrous: Tales of Valor and Villainy. For more on the comics follow Greg Wright, the comic’s writer, on Twitter and the Monstrous Facebook page. You can pick up the first issue of Monstrous in stores February 17th.
