Post [Small Press Idol] Max Monkey, Monster Masher
Image

Meet Max Monkey, Monster Masher.

This is his story, the story of a monkey (well, ape, really), his mallet (or is it more of a maul?) and the monsters he mashes (yeah, we're pretty clear on the monster part).

Max was just a simple ape, living a simple life in a simple village, until the demented Heinrich Hammler attacked Max's home village. Max's best friend, monster-hunting hero Boaris Kurloff, fought valiantly against Hammler's forces, but disappeared in the carnage. Now Max, armed with Boaris' legendary hammer The Monster Masher, scours the land for the truth about his friend's fate, and deals with the vampires, glitter zombies, house cats, mermanatee, lawyers and Things Monkeys Were Not Meant To Know along the way.

With grim determination, a steely gaze and a secret passion for interior decorating fueling his crusade, Max strives to make the world safe for the likes of the hero-worshipping Monkeyangelo and Max's childhood sweetheart Chimperella...but can even Max be prepared to face his ultimate destiny and the strange truth about his friend?

And, yes...there WILL be poo.

Hi folks...I'm in Small Press Idol this year, a contest for amateur comic book creators...I've entered with two of my artist buddies, MAX MONKEY co-creator Werner Mueck and my collaborator on Equinox Comics' THE CURSE Ben Soto.

If you like comics at all...or if you just like me...I would sure appreciate the support as we enter Round 2 of SPI. The winners get a four issue guaranteed run, as well as an action figure released, based off of the concept. So, I'd appreciate all the help we can get...head on over to http://www.smallpressidol.com and register on their forums. Round 2 (and public voting) begins April 5th.

Thanks!
Tommy

Well the concept is great and that image is rocking. I'll head on over, with a personal bias based on your good work in the roleplaying community, but I'll try to keep an objective eye, so let's hope your work can stand on it's own! ;)

I appreciate it! I feel good about stacking Werner (the artist of that piece) up against most anybody. In Round 2, we will be unveiling a series of character designs that, I believe, are both hilarious and impressive.
