Monsters…in…SPAAAACE!  Frankenstein’s misunderstood monster takes a giant leap for mankind when he becomes the first man (…well, “creature”) on Mars.  However, a life of exploration and solitude is interrupted when he again encounters humans, and learns that some things never change.

Writer Aaron Duran and artist Jess L’Heureux capture the tragic appeal of Mary Shelley’s monsters in this poignant tale.  The digital download includes extras you can ONLY get online, including a BONUS chapter from “Monsters and the Monsters Who Make Them,” a mini-series written by James McGee and illustrated by Alex Cormack.

For almost 10 years, Aaron’s channeled his love for all things popular culture into the award-winning website and podcast, GeekintheCity.com. 2009 heralded the return of live radio dramas in Portland when Aaron began to write and star in A.Z., a series set in Portland’s dark future, after the zombies conquered the world and The Adventures of the Crimson Mist, a heart-felt love letter to pulp adventure during the golden age of radio. (www.geekinthecity.com/audio-projects/) Both were well-received but gave way to corporate radio buyouts. In 2011, Aaron self-published his first comic, La Brujeria, (www.geekinthecitycomics.com/). A whimsical take on Western European myth mixed with Latin American folklore, La Brujeria draws on Aaron’s Hispanic heritage, his love of mythology, and his adopted hometown of Portland. He currently writes for www.Newsarama.com while spending his days in the not-so-rainy home of Portland, OR along with his fantastic wife, and his embarrassingly cowardly greyhound.

Jess L’Heureux is a freelance illustrator who recently graduated with her BFA in Illustration. She has a very eclectic taste in comics, if it’s a comic she’ll probably read it regardless of what it’s about. She is heavily inspired by the supernatural and many of her personal pieces and comics reflect this. She works at a local animal shelter (which also gives Jess its fair share of inspiration), though she hopes to one day be able to draw comics for a living!
