Mono hoped to avoid conflict with the Nazis in Caen preferring to be a “ghost”. But his plan’s gone horribly awry and now he’s outnumbered and outgunned--so can he outrun the Third Reich?



Storyline:

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.

That is Interesting, I see many heroes that do not Evolve... a method of fast travel... do not Survive... but I see that is not how your hero works... he doesn't save people... just run a muck...

My hero is similar... he isn't meant to save lives... just kill and make the bad guys Afraid

A poetic big foot.... cool

Awesome. I liked that you focused on the aftermath and not so much the actual act. Nice touch on his inner thoughts too.

Everything about this is beautiful! the art! the music! the choreography! But even more so: how they all entwine together to act on all your senses. It brings it to life in a way that plays both on your vision and your imagination.

I love this one. So exciting. I really like the "FATOOM!" as it reminds me of when boom studios made that epic "BOOM" in Batman & Robin which really got me back in to comics... I just love that effect, it is so epic in books. and it's handled really nicely here... i mean obviously there's so much more to be excited about here and I'm picking out a detail but ... anyway really enjoyed it.
