"From the Boer War, through the First and Second World War, the Cold War and beyond, Mono was there...where no one else could go..." The ape-human hybrid secret agent and Queen's assassin, possessed of a deadly prehensile tail and "the strength of twelve men," made his debut in the pulps of the 1930s and enjoyed a brief revival in the late 1960s and 70s. But can it be that the fiction is closer to historic fact than was ever previously guessed? Now a series of tales, told in hand-written journals and reported first-hand by those that knew him, reveal Mono as a dual-natured and conflicted adventurer - savage and noble; civilized, but ultimatel more

    Titan Comics is quicklydelivering its own impressive roster of new titles. This partnership with Madefire has some potential and I'm always open to see competitors to the Amazon hegemony succeed. If anything a heavy dash of options is what benefits the consumer most. Give a new comic a shot and let the beast that is Mono captivate you in his new series! Read Full Review

    Monodefinitely isnt for everyone but for fans of the war/spy genre I can see it being a good read. Its in a sense kind of retro, and definitely has a rich array of source material to modify for Sharps own devices. While not the most impactful first issue, the series has potential to be a strong and gritty read, and Ill be keeping my eye on it for sure. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Austin Lanari Dec 17, 2014

    At this point, the comic review skeptic is shaking his or her fist and berating me for criticizing the story based on what I wish the story was. But I think that is to misunderstand the point that I'm making: as a person writing a script of a #1 issue of a comic you have ajob to do. There are aspects of that job that you either do well or poorly, and those are the main factors that determine whether or not I continue to read your comic. Sure, it's my fault that I did not come for the action story with flowery prose: but Mono's failure is in not making me want to comeback. Read Full Review
