If you are familiar with the old blog you will know that i'm a huge fan of indie pulp creator Dave Flora.
I'm very happy to be able to say that Doc Monster, his 1950s pulp sci-fi adventurer, is back in a new webseries.
Doc Monster started out as a Zuda webcomic contest entry. I was a big supporter and i was disappointed that the comic failed to win that month. In hindsight tho that might have been a good thing... a few months later and Zuda is now defunct, whilst Doc Monster is back with a new look and a new direction. Dave is starting over with the character and, while all the things i loved about Doc Monster the first time out are still there, this reboot looks and feels like a much more mature and refined affair. It's also a lot more creepy.
I'm fortunate enough to know a little about where this new Doc Monster is heading, and believe me it is going to be fantastic... an epic love letter to 1950s B-movies that throws together everything from the Mothman and UFOs to commies and popular conspiracy theories... all of which is just the tip of a magnificent iceberg of fun and weirdness.
And of course there is Dave's art... which is never less than gorgeous.
