Monkey Squad Monday

Monkey Squad One #11
The best superhero comic book I'm following right now doesn't come from Marvel or DC or any other mainstream comic book company. No, the best superhero comic book I'm reading and loving at the moment comes from Doug Michel, a talented writer/artist from St. Louis. His book, Monkey Squad One, follows the adventures of three boys who fight supervillains, evil A.U.N.T.s, giant bugs, brain-thirsty zombies, and other forms of evil under the watchful eye of a not-so-secret government agency that is headquartered in the Gateway Arch (Which now features a laser cannon on top). I'm afraid I can't properly describe MS1 without doing it justice, but if you want to enjoy a superhero comic that features heroes with a kickass attitiude, smart and funny writing, excellent and original artwork, and an unique local flavor then Monkey Squad One is the book for you!
If any of this intrigues you, you can check out some of the Squad's adventures at  www.monkeysquadone.com or contact Doug at monkeysquadmailbox@gmail.com and he might even hook you up with a free comic!
It's always a thrill to come across someone who is passionate and excited about making comics. Doug's enthusiasm and creativity is evident on every page and his comic books are just fun to read! Do yourself a favor and check them out!

  • I love Monkey Squad One! I picked up some issues at StarClipper when I was in St. Louis in 2011. Glad Doug is still making good comics; thanks for the review, Tom!
