Ten Years Later – MonkeyBrain Comics

Ten years ago today, MonkeyBrain Comics launched. Maybe you’ve forgotten about it, never heard of it in the first place, or just didn’t realize the date. That’s all right. Ten years ago today, the thing that quite literally changed my life, became a reality. Given that, how could I not want to spend some time and talk about it? Right? Before I really dig in though I am going to say something, and unpack it along the way: The modern comic market does not exist without MonkeyBrain Comics having happened. For now let’s just start at the start. D.J. Kirkbride and I had worked together on a few things (editing (with others) Image’s Popgun anthology and writing some stuff within it) and wanted to try our hand at a series. Neither of us had tried one before. We talked with…

Amelia Cole Merchendise – Lemmy Head Pins

In order to celebrate the Feb 20th release of Amelia Cole issue 6 we decided to make a very short run of our first Amelia Cole merchandise. So, working with Jennifer Cunningham of Jen Hearts Art the Lemmy Head Pin (2″) was created. When I say “working with” I mean Jennifer was told what we thought would be awesome and then she made it even cooler than it was conceived. The pin is hand-crafted and painted, so each is slightly different. They are two inches in diameter and use a butterfly clutch pin for extra strength. Here are pictures of the pin: Look, a pin! And now for scale – a shiny quarter! Want one? Act fast * There are only 12 for sale. * They cost $15 US (incl. shipping). * They will arrive in a box way too…

I want you to read comics.

This Sunday is my birthday. As such I am asking you all for something. I’m asking early, because Sunday is a sucky day to ask for things. But I am asking each and every one of you to help me out. Amelia Cole and the Unknown World is dear to my heart. Issue Two just came out ( buy it here), if you didn’t know, and Issue One is still for sale (buy it here). Amelia needs your help. Small independent books rely on word of mouth and ground support more than anything else. We have to build a base and spread the word. Each issue is only $1.99 – so yes I am asking you to spend four dollars on me. $3.98 if you want to be picky. But if everyone reading this spent that four bucks Amelia would…
