Sneak Peek: Titan Comics/Madefire Partnership Kicks-off With Two New Series

Mono #1 - Cover

 

17th December 2014 will see the kick-off for the Titan Comics/Madefire partnership beginning in two new series: historical action/adventure Mono #1 by Liam Sharp & Ben Wolstenholme and superhero adventure Cap Stone #1 by Christina McCormack & Liam Sharp – and we have sneak peeks of both comics.

Madefire (www.madefire.com) has carved a name as a digital comic publisher and creative force over the last few years. The US-based company is undertaking what it describes as an epic journey, “one that we believe will revolutionize how stories are told, read, and shared. One that will transform a once static medium into an interactive experience that unfolds dynamically on mobile devices, and evolves with each new episode.”

The mission is backed by their Motion Book Tool, built it to unite the timeless beauty of sequential art with cutting-edge technology, and to give new creative freedom to the world’s most visionary creators and storytellers.

MONO​ #1​

ART BY: Ben Wolstenholme
PUBLISHER: Titan Comics
PAGECOUNT: 32
COVER PRICE: $3.99
RELEASE DATE: Wednesday 17th December 2014

The ape-human hybrid secret agent and Queen’s assassin, possessed of a deadly prehensile tail and ‘the strength of twelve men’, made his debut in the pulps of the 1930s and enjoyed a brief revival in the late 1960s and 70s.

But can it be that the fiction is closer to historic fact than was ever previously guessed?

Now a series of tales, told in hand-written journals and reported first-hand by those that knew him, reveal Mono as a dual-natured and conflicted adventurer– savage and noble; civilized, but ultimately untameable.

The world’s first and only superhero has disappeared after undergoing a cataclysmic fall from grace in the eyes of the world. Middle-aged and unable to support his operations he had made a preposterous claim that the world was in danger, a notion derided by the media and the public at large. But what if the claim is true?

Outcast writer and infamous murderess Charlie Chance, AKA The Pet, finds herself searching for the one man who was able to bring her to justice– Captain Stone.
