It's 1945 and World War II is nearing it's apocalyptic conclusion.

In the Pacific Theater, the Japanese are preparing for one final, deadly gambit...and all that stands between annihilation of the American fleet is the British ape-human secret agent Mono!

From the mind of New York Times best-selling writer Brian Wood (Star Wars; X-Men) and illustrated by international sensation Sergio Sandoval (Uncharted; Batman) comes a two-fisted tale of adventure, drama, and mind-blowing action!

Hey everyone, I had a great time building this one, and the coming up episodes were just as much fun! The writing is amazing and the artwork is some of the best I think I've ever seen. The music and the sound effects were outstanding. Thanks for reading!

Beautiful, beautiful art. But I still like the way you draw Mono a bit better, Ben. Your Mono is a bit more disturbingly nondescript- neither human nor animal...

Yes, I see the various aspects of your brand developing and I must say, it seems to me that you're succeeding. Moving Brands, Madefire, Mono...

God's Ball's man, what will you do next? ;-)

All the part with the watch is very good , full of humanity , and the motion gives  an incredible strengh and intensity.
The surpise of the hero who loose his weapon is a real surprise ...
The gun shots  are  :wow: ... I need to make  progress  :D fav.me/d7ulibj
