Monthly has a very inviting cover logo which belies the danger lurking inside this issue. I appreciate that the font style is a little less mechanical than previous Silber Media offerings, looking more like hand-lettering than typewritten in this issue. Mitchell shifts the story from a monthly longing for companionship, which is emotionally identifiable, to a twinge of desperation, to the outright supernatural. The frank, deapdan delivery of these elements really sells it. The protagonist comes at the old adage of “when you’re actively looking for love, it rarely happens” totally sideways, to delightful results. I’d like to see more of this one! Grade A.

A guy wants to fall in love with a girl. He could meet her anywhere. Ok this guy seemed normal at the start. Then we see he is really not normal. He is not all there in the head. Wow this comic takes some major twists and turns. The artwork is also at times intense. It's simple and basic but still very outgoing. How does a werewolf find love?

A love story for the monsters, would be a good tag line on this one. I wasn’t sure where the book was going at the start, but when it hit the end I was more than satisfied. The artwork played nicely with what was going on, and well I am a sucker for a mini werewolf it seems. Without spoiling it I have to say my favorite line was when the main character explained who he was. This book is a winner.

I was also impressed with MONTHLY #1 which features art from Eric Shonborn. On the surface it just appears to be about a man searching for love. But as the story progresses, you begin to understand that there is a lot more to this man than we first realize. The ending has a nice twist, and it looks really nice. Solid stuff.

With the pace that Brian has established in making comics, it might be tempting to take that title literally. You’d be wrong, as it’s actually about a suicidal werewolf, but it would be an easy mistake to make. Anyway, yeah: suicidal werewolf. The only way this werewolf can be killed is by being shot through the heart three times by someone who loves him, so he has to spend the time between changes getting somebody to fall in love with them while still keeping them willing to kill him when he changes into a werewolf. Naturally this is a difficult trick to accomplish, as all the “I’m a werewolf” talk in the world wouldn’t keep you from being any less terrified when the actual change occurred. This first issue is mostly setting all that up, but it also managed to include a few intriguing questions. He still seems to chat with his mother, for example, and he can only be killed by somebody he loves, so… Well, it was intriguing to me anyway, but come to think of it I still haven’t seen a finished series by the man. It’s another fine addition to his comics pile, and if you liked his previous stuff I sure don’t see a reason for you to avoid this. I poked around on his website a bit today and saw that he has a number of past issues available for free download (including this one), so why not check out a few for free and see what you think? Then at least buy a few of them, as it’s a little sleazy to just read all his stuff for free. Yes, I am in fact one of the few people left who cares about such things.
