The MonstaLand Grand Tour

So I'm sure you've been wondering, "Hey, what is this MonstaLand thing, anyway?". Well, I think this sums it up nicely (click images to enlarge):

Oh, yeah, a lot of the images in this post are unquestionably NSFW, heh! Anyway, MonstaLand is a mashup of two of the most fun things upon the world: giant monsters and sex, served up in comic book form (so that's actaully three fun things right there). Look, giant monsters!

And sex!



And so on. You get the idea. My goal, as I see it, is to make good comic books that happen to be smutty, as opposed to smutty comics that happen to be good. Hey, stop snickering, it's been done! Check out Phil Foglio's xXxenophile or Colleen Coover's Small Favors if you don't believe me. The spirit of good-natured, unapologetic, grown-up fun that animates both of these comics had a big influence on MonstaLand.

For me, a big part of the fun came from taking this patently ridiculous premise and tweaking out all the elements of a good story from it, with appealing characters, an interesting plot, etc. etc. A good comic book, in other words, nothing more or less. I worked pretty hard on that, to be honest, and I think it was well worth it. I take fun seriously! So there you have it. Welcome to MONSTALAND!

  1. One of my favorite panels: "Woop woop woop!" at the lower right on the fourth page you've posted. Great stuff! Keep up (ahem) the good work, Davey!
