On July 2nd 2012 (today, if you are reading this as it’s published) New York Times bestselling comic book creator Chris Roberson is doing something amazing. He and co-publisher Alison Baker have officially launched a new creator owned comic book publishing company called MonkeyBrain Comics, and from what I can see, these comics are really cool!
On top of the brilliant artists and writers already signed on, which in itself deserves a bow, is the choice on the part of Roberson and Baker to distribute the books digitally through Comixology. It goes without saying that the future of comic books and graphic novels rest in the digital marketplace, and the fact that MonkeyBrain is hitting the scene with such a beautiful array of books doesn’t hurt.
I am making it my personal mission to review as many of the MonkeyBrain Comics as I possibly can over the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned.
Joining New York Times bestselling author Chris Roberson (iZombie, Memorial, Cinderella) under the Monkeybrain Comics umbrella with their own independent titles will be a who’s who line up of creators, including; Grace Allison, Nick Brokenshire, J. Bone, Chad Bowers, Wook-Jin Clark, Colleen Coover, Kevin Church, Dennis Culver, Matt Digges, Ming Doyle, Curt O. Franklin, Ken Garing, Chris Haley, David Hahn, Phil Hester, Joe Keatinge, D.J. Kirkbride, Adam Knave, Axel Medellin, Jennifer L. Meyer, Michael Montenat, Ananth Panagariya, Thomas Perkins, Adam Rosenlund, Chris Schweitzer, Brandon Seifert, Chris Sims, Matthew Dow Smith, Paul Tobin, J. Torres, Josh Williamson and Bill Willingham, among others.
More creative teams with new titles will be announced next week at Comic-Con International during the Monkeybrain Comics panel on Friday, July 13th at 7PM.
