MONKEYBRAIN COMICS ENTERS ITS SECOND YEAR OF OPERATION WITH A RAFT OF NEW TITLES IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD TODAY!
Monkeybrain Comics launched on July 2, 2012 with six titles and a simple dream: to make good comics. Twelve months and more than two dozen new titles later, they are well on their way to making that dream a reality, with new digital releases on comiXology every week, and print collections coming out from publishers like IDW, Image, and Dark Horse. The Onion AV Club has named Monkeybrain Comics the “premier destination for high-quality digital comics,” and IGN has said that Monkeybrain is “the company that seems to be doing [digital comics]best.” Monkeybrain titles were frequently cited in critics’ year-end surveys, and MASKS & MOBSTERS was named the Best Digital Series of 2012 by USA Today. And in 2013, Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover received a total of four Eisner nominations for their work on BANDETTE.
“We have been overwhelmed by the amount of support we’ve received from readers and creators alike in our first year of operation,” co-publisher Allison Baker said, “and we can’t wait to show everyone what we have planned for our second year.”
To celebrate the start of their second year of operation, Monkeybrain Comics is releasing a raft of exciting new titles at Comic Con International in San Diego, all of them immediately available for download on comiXology today.
