Media Release — Adding to the growing excitement for San Diego Comic-Con, IDW Publishing today announced MONOCYTE, an all-new four-issue comic series launching in October. Written by breakthrough artist menton3 with Kasra Ghanbari, with art and covers by menton3 (Zombies vs Robots Aventure, Silent Hill: Past Life), MONOCYTE brings readers to a scarred world where time has no meaning, ruled by two warring immortal races.
“I had the wonderful opportunity to work with menton3 on IDW’s Silent Hill: Past Life miniseries,” said IDW senior staff writer and editor, Tom Waltz. “His work on that book was phenomenal and I knew all along he was destined to be a mega-star in this industry. MONOCYTE proves I was right!”
MONOCYTE #1, available in October, tells the tale of two warring immortal races who rule a scarred world absent of duration. Death sits impotent, quietly planning his restoration. He summons Monocyte, a forgotten immortal necromancer who long ago chose sleep in his failed quest to die. With a fatal pact sealed, Monoctye strikes out as Death’s vicious proxy. MONOCYTE is an action-adventure in a hyperrealistic fantasy setting with occult undertones, filled with visually dazzling characters, environments, and dynamic fight scenes all imbued with magical, occult, political, philosophical, social, and technological themes.
