New Comic Series Preview: Monster World: The Golden Age #1

Monster World A

Demons, occult magic, and the history of monsters and humanity are at the center of Monster World: The Golden Age, a new comic book series coming out this summer from American Gothic Press.

This new series art by Piotr Kowalski, colors by Dennis Calero, and letters by Jenn Pham, accompanying publisher Philip Kim‘s original story and script by Holly Interlandi.

The story offers a lot for those who enjoy a mix of magic and mystery…

Monster World began at the doors of World Studios, where private detective Henry Barrymore was asked to investigate a case of multiple murders on movie sets and ended up uncovering an occult conspiracy that went back for decades!

Now an experienced magic user, Hank is on a quest to find Shirley, the Galgamaic witch who was captured when the studio was destroyed. Hank summons Nybbas, the demon of knowledge, to get information on the world before monsters existed.

Nybbas elaborates on the creation of the nephilim and how special dimensional portals enabled the pure Enocians to escape the wrath of the Watchers. Hoping to find one of these portals, Hank follows Nybbas’s clues to the plains of Oklahoma, where a strange farm boy has managed to keep his house standing in the face of an angry elemental mage named Rybach.

But something much worse than Rybach is coming. Something ancient, sinister, and branded in fire….

Monster World will have two covers for readers to collect by choice, with cover A by series artist Piotr Kowalski, and cover B by Nat Jones.

Monster World: The Golden Age #1 will release on July 24th, 2019 at better comic book stores everywhere, and on popular digital apps. Enjoy this 6-page preview (huge thanks to American Gothic Press, visit them for more info and other interesting titles at americangothicpress.com).
