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.

Episode 2-

I love it! Great story, great animation, great art. This is really a masterpiece but I have to blame you for making a mono-addict ;) No, serious, I downloaded every single episode via app and all I can say is: thank you for that experience and keep going!

Oh yeah.. I am waiting for episode 6... very curious to know what happens next :D

It is so beautifully made and I am still baffled by the 360 degree room view.. Just how did you pull that off?

Not only your art is incredible the whole comic has this life to it. Everything is just so well made that you can actually feel it.. especially the shot where the old guy is reading and the fire from the fire place is glowing in the background.. it gives you the sense of warmth..

I love it and I am eagerly waiting for the next episode ;) damn the suspense is killing me :P

Hope you had a wonderful time at Comic Con!

Thank you again - you've really taken in what i'm trying to do - i think the fireplace moment is fun - it is really just a dissolve between a few different colorings of the same line art - but i think the crackle of the sound adds a lot of atmos as well. Really - thank you very much for the feedback. MONO 6 is well on it's way - i will be posting some art today ! been too long - love to know what you think... i hope i don't spoil the story for you tho!

questions aways welcome - please forgive the intermittent feedback - want to get started on MONO 7 and one more page of 6 to go!
