Staff Pick (May09): We Kill Monsters

Proving to the comic book world once again that their 2007 GEM award for “Best New Publisher” was well-deserved, Red 5 Comics continues to release original, high-quality stories that rival just about any other book currently being published by even those who have been around for decades.

We Kill Monsters is a tale of two brothers who live fairly simple lives, and that’s just fine with them.  Of course, the brothers’ lives go from simple to insane all in one night when a bloodthirsty creature decides to make the brothers its next meal.  This unexplained attack triggers a chaotic journey for the siblings as they witness firsthand that there really are monsters under the bed — and everywhere else.

In the action-comedy tradition of Red 5 Comics’ other hits like Atomic Robo and Abyss, We Kill Monsters is fun, genre-bending actioner from creative professionals spanning the world of media from comic books to television.  With art by Brian Churilla (Rex Mundi), and words by creators Laura Harkcom and Christopher Leone (Sci-Fi Channel’s The Lost Room), this will be the next choice for fans of books like Living With the Dead (Dark Horse) and Proof (Image Comics).
