Check out our Kickstarter campaign to pre-order your very own copy!
Next in a regular series, I'd like to highlight the creators who make MONSTERS so terribly good. Allow me to introduce you to Susanne Lund Pangrazio and her piece "Bestiary of the Political Mainland".  "Bestiary of the Political Mainland" is a combination of poetry, collage, and drawing that features the 21st century's number one villain: The Politician.  In response to the increasingly conservative, and often outright racist, political landscape...

Allow me to introduce you to Carly Luk and her piece "The Guarding of Eden"."My mother began her garden six months after my father left.
