Monster Parade #1

Comic book, 2007

Holy crap, this is what comics are for, folks. Their ability to let an artist scoop out their imagination and smear it all over the page, unfiltered. (That’s not ALL comics are for, but it’s a big one.) Monster Parade #1 is not too far off of what it’s title suggests, and boy there’s some beauties in here. The literal parade of monsters bookends a story that’s more of a situational horror, but it’s just as effective humor and all. The momentum builds and builds, with wilder monsters coming and going faster and faster. Then at the end, we’re left with the thought “Oh shit, but don’t go in woods. That’s where the real bad stuff is.” 4
