High Literature & Low Monsters in STRANGE NATION #2

by ryankl

STRANGE NATION by Juan Romera + Paul Allor is one of my favourite new titles from Monkeybrain Comics and I hope you checked it out – it’s gonzo conspiracy insanity with all the pulp you need.

Starting in issue #2, I’m running a back matter column called HIGH LITERATURE & LOW MONSTERS.

This is the back matter I was born to write because it’s just me shooting holes in cheese while I discuss tabloid paper fodder and its portrayal in all media – from film, to tv, to books, to the hallowed four colour page. It’s just a whole mess to write, and research. Also, Juan did a hell of a job on that banner illo, right?

This week’s issue, which drops this Wednesday on ComiXology, is one mighty fine issue and I’m really glad to kick off my study with Bigfoot. See how the iconic furball fares in the media saturation test.

Bonus points: if you mention the back matter in your review of the issue 😀


Also, as always, if you purchase the issue straight off the ComiXology site not only does that save a third of your money going straight to Apple but the issue will instantly be available for download on your iDevice anyway. Be creator friendly, buy online.
