Four days left in “Monsterella” Kickstarter!

BC comic creator Nevin Arnold, who drew the cover for Cloudscape’s Epic Canadiana #2  (as well as co-authoring one of the short stories) is Kickstarting issue 2 of Monsterella, his action/adventure/horror/sci-fi anthology inspired by spooky and action-packed magazines of the 1970’s like Vampirella, 2000 AD, Creepy, and Eerie.

This 40 page sinister second issue revolves around the continuing adventures of Montrossa Rella, AKA “Monsterella,” the warden of an intergalactic prison planet, where the galaxy’s worst of the worst monsters are imprisoned and isolated from the rest of the universe. All hell breaks loose when an unexpected revolt overthrows her, and threatens the safety of the entire galaxy.

There are only four days left in the Monsterella Kickstarter, so if you wish a copy of issue 2 or some of Nevin  Arnold’s other great comics, then visit the Monsterella Kickstarter.
