About Monkeybrain Books and Comics
Launched in the summer of 2012 by New York Times-bestselling writer Chris Roberson and TV commercial and film producer Allison Baker, Monkeybrain Comics was designed to be a home for quality creator-owned comics made available in digital format via the Comics By comiXology platform. The Onion AV Club has named Monkeybrain Comics the “premier destination for high-quality digital comics,” and IGN has said that Monkeybrain is “the company that seems to be doing [digital comics] best.” Monkeybrain titles were frequently cited in critics’ year-end surveys, and MASKS & MOBSTERS was named the Best Digital Series of 2012 by USA Today.
Monkeybrain Comics are available for purchase via the Comics by comiXology platform on phones, tablets, digital readers, and computers, and will now be available for the first time in print collections.
