Comic Review: Mono # 2 (of 4)

Mono2Cover.jpg.size-600A book set in World War II, following the title character, Mono, an Ape-Human hybrid. With the first few pages following Mono as he takes out Nazi after Nazi, the last ten or so pages is just a small dinner with a Nazi General, Heinrich Eberbach. This issue had a lot of text in it, though that’s not a bad thing. You get to learn a bit about what the General thinks will happen during the war and about his upbringing; and even though it is a slow build up, it seems to lead up to a confrontation between the two characters in the next issue as the General tells his four wolves (Odin, Loki, Baldor and Fenrir) to “Attack” an unknown enemy.

Probably my favorite thing about this book was the art. Not cartoon-y at all, it is drawn with so much detail I couldn’t take my eyes off it. Even after I finished reading a page I would linger to take in everything. It reminded me of another book that I read, Squarriors, with its very realistic drawings. If nothing else you can stare at the pretty pictures, though I do hope you read it because it is looking to be one good read. I’m actually looking forward to reading the last two books. Pick it up if you want an interesting read.

MSRP:  $3.99USD
