Back in February, I posted about Zenescope Entertainment’s comic book The Monster Hunters’ Survival Guide.
Issue 1’s subject was The Undead. Issue 2’s subject was Cryptids.
Each issue is available with three different covers, one of which is a limited edition of 500 copies.
The folks at Zenescope Entertainment have been kind enough to send me copies of all of the issues to to check out.
While I would consider The Monster Hunters’ Survival Guide to be more of an encyclopedia of the monsters featured than a comic book, they have some really cool artwork, as evidenced by the cover artwork shown here.
The subject for Issue 3 is Giant Monsters and Issue 4 is Unnatural Beasts.
Both of these issues feature cryptids familiar to many Cryptomundians, such as giant anacondas, huge catfish, living dinosaurs and the Chupacabras.
Issue 4’s cover art features Charlie Sheen and a Chupacabras. Doing what you ask? Duh, Winning!
Click on the cover image to go directly to Zenescope Entertainment’s website to order that particular issue.
And make sure you tell ‘em that Cryptomundo sent ya!
