Monkey Brain Comics Celebrates Second Year With Five New Titles

Well we’re going to try to get you some reviews for these new titles much in the way we did for the first year of Monkey Brain’s existence, but in the meantime here’s a preview of each title and the official press release. If you’re at Comic Con, check out the bottom for their panel information.

Official Press Release:

Monkeybrain Comics launched on July 2, 2012 with six titles and a simple dream: to make good comics. Twelve months and more than two dozen new titles later, they are well on their way to making that dream a reality, with new digital releases on comiXology every week, and print collections coming out from publishers like IDW, Image, and Dark Horse.

“We have been overwhelmed by the amount of support we’ve received from readers and creators alike in our first year of operation,” co-publisher Allison Baker said, “and we can’t wait to show everyone what we have planned for our second year.”

To celebrate the start of their second year of operation, Monkeybrain Comics is releasing a raft of exciting new titles at Comic Con International in San Diego, all of them immediately available for download on comiXology today.
