Something sinister is lurking behind the cameras of world-famous World Studios, and it may not be human. When Detective Henry Barrymore is approached by a mysterious woman to investigate her husband's disappearance, he hardly expects to be embroiled in the workings of a mysterious cult who seem to have control over movie monsters. It's Casablanca meets Crowley in this supernatural noir mini-series!

    A series called Monster World was bound to attract my attention. So far, things are looking pretty damn good. I’m really excited to see where this series goes. I am reminded of the movie Cursed, when werewolves are set loose in LA. I’m hoping we get to see some of the classic monsters as well as Kowalski’s new creations. We’ll have to keep reading to see!

    Monster World is a comic that's tailor made for me.  It's a mix of private eye noir and good old-fashioned monsters that delivers on every level.  If The Maltese Falcon had a werewolf instead of a bird statue, it might resemble this comic.  If you're a fan of Hard Case Crime and the classic movie monsters, this is right up your alley.

    Capeless Crusader - Kevin Dempsey Dec 15, 2015

    Monster World #1 is a really cool change of pace for the noir genre with a pretty interesting case so far involving monsters and cinema. While not perfect, I'm curious to see where this mystery is going and I'm looking forward to seeing more action with these not so camera friendly Hollywood monsters. Read Full Review

    Monster World is a strong first issue, Steve Niles gets horror so the promise and potential of this series is high, and I'll be back to read more! Fans of monsters, noir, and classic pulp-type stories or horror movies should check out this new title from American Gothic Press. Ask your local comic shop to order a copy if they don't have it on the rack. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Jan 20, 2016

    Like I said, this comic isn't perfect, but there is just something about it that I really enjoyed. I was glad to be able to read two issues back-to-back and would definitely encourage others to do the same. I'm in it for the long run as I'd really like to see which other tropes will be used and how everything will play out in the end. Read Full Review
