The ape-human hybrid secret agent and Queen's assassin, possessed of a deadly prehensile tail and 'the strength of twelve men', made his debut in the pulps of the 1930s and enjoyed a brief revival in the late 1960s and 70s.

But can it be that the fiction is closer to historic fact than was ever previously guessed?

Now a series of tales, told in hand-written journals and reported first-hand by those that knew him, reveal Mono as a dual-natured and conflicted adventurer--savage and noble; civilized, but ultimately untamable.

Sorry i don't think I can ready your book... it's too sad... and I'm already writing about war in my own book... it's just too much for my fragile heart... it's odd, I enjoy deaths on TV, but can beer it in a book

It is hard writing about war. And you can't really do it well without studying it - for instance, the battle here, and even one of the main figures from the story, was part of a real even in Caen in WWII. Wilfred Owen's war poems were also an inspiration. Sorry you find it too hard to read, but in a way that must mean we a striking a nerve with our yarn...

Yep, striking a nerve is always a good thing when we write, it's the goal of all writers to get through to their readers... what else would be the point of it all, if not to strike some nerves.

Thanks, good to know their are some good writers out there

Never seen a motion book before - I'm so glad the first I saw was yours. It's beautiful. It would be amazing even as a traditional comic as the story and artwork are excellent, but the added dimension added by the Madefire technology just makes it seriously impressive.

Good job. I hope there will be many more!
