This week: something different! A chat with Andrew Ihla, author of Dracula vs Moby-Dick!

We’re taking the day off in preparation for next week’s bombastic return. But in the meantime, we’re extremely happy to have the above portrait of our main monster from Harmine Toussounian to keep you folks entertained. This is just a taste of what Harmine can do, so while you’re waiting on us, check out her Deviantart site!
And we’ll see you back here next Monday!
Hey, everyone! With all the Halloween festivities taking place, we weren’t able to get a new page done for you in time for this week. Believe me, no one wants new pages more than me! Hopefully, you’ll accept this little watercolor painting as a substitute. <3
If you’re only reading the comic in an RSS feed, you perhaps don’t even know that we’ve got a whole gift shop where you can buy Monster Plus art prints, t-shirts, tote bags, and other fun stuff! (Your support goes towards buying the ink and paper this comic is drawn with!)
AND this week you can get FREE SHIPPING! Whatta deal! $__$
Happy Halloween, boys and ghouls! We wouldn’t let our favorite holiday pass by without something sweet for our trick-or-treaters, so let your greedy little hands help themselves to these printable puppets! Cut them out and attach them to popsicle sticks, or turn them into finger puppets with an extra loop of paper, and have fun re-creating the comic thusfar, or make up your own adventures!
P.S. Take a look at JoJo’s jack o’ lantern this year!
Summer break’s almost over for Monster Plus, but before we jump back in, here’s one more pin-up to blow your mind out!
Today’s guest art comes from the immensely talented Joe Hunter! We’ve been fans of Joe for a while now, but we finally met him back in June at Heroescon, and dude’s just the best. He draws comics, and related stuff, and if you haven’t already, you should really check out his site GHOST BUCKET and follow him on twitter @Joe_Hunter.
In addition to all that, Joe somehow manages to find time to occasionally help the boys over at Let’s Be Friends Again with coloring. So while you’re making the rounds, head on over there too, and (re)check out a comic most of you probably already read.
Finally, be here next week when we’re back in full force. We’ve got big things in store, starting with Mona and Drac’s all-new, all-different plan for saving the future… if they don’t destroy it first.
Our Guest Art Julystraganza with this incredible Monster Plus bento lunch box, by Sam! You can see more of Sam’s fantastic bentosmith skills (and cosplay skills, too!) at her Tumblr and deviantART! Sam is also a talented singer-songwriter, and you can hear her music at AGirlNamedSam.com.
Our guest artstravaganza continues this week with this colorful portrait of Mona 88, by the wonderful Kayla Cline! Kayla authors the eerie Western comic Slag Valley and also has an art blog full of all kinds of visual goodies (especially corgis.) Thanks, Kayla!
Also, because I love you all so much, I made you a mixtape. Go ahead and download the official unofficial Monster Plus soundtrack now, ’cause it won’t be up forever.
Our brief Summer hiatus continues–which turns out to be really good, ’cause Chad gave me a doozy of an assignment for page 19, and I honestly need the extra time to work on it.
This week’s adorable guest art comes from Li Österberg, all the way in Sweden! Li does fantastic comics about Greek mythology, and about relationships and sexuality. Great stuff! You can check out all her work at her official website, but if you can’t read Swedish, she’s also graciously provided English versions of many of her comics at her deviantART page. Tack så mycket, Li!
We’re still recovering from the amazing adventure that was HeroesCon–wherein the entire Monster Plus creative team all got together in person for the first time!–so we’re taking a tiny hiatus, giving us a chance to put some exciting new plans into effect. But we’ll never leave you high and dry, so for the next month we’ve been graced with guest art by an incredible lineup of talents.
This week: Monster Plus versus Captain Dracula, by James Riot!
