'Investigating the forgotten corners of our world, one monster at a time.'
That's the story in a nutshell, however, it doesn't tell you just how action packed, funny, and surprising the story really is.
Gordon has written a wonderfully captivating romp that is a real page turner. Coupled with PJ's engaging artwork, all four issues of Dept. of Monsterology are a joy to read.
The first story arc introduces us to ancient monsters from the depths of the ocean, crystaline creatures from the caves of Eastern Europe, undead armies from the catacombs of Northern China, and the Department’s deadliest rivals of all...
This is Issue 1 of 4. Dept Of Monsterology "Monsterology 101" collects the first miniseries, plus a new one-off called “The Trouble With Harry” where we explore some of the origins of Brain in a jar in a giant Diving Suit Robot Harry Wilmington.
Available in trade paperback on October 8 2014 at bookstores, comic book stores and direct from the publisher at http://www.renegadeartsentertainment.com/comics/dept-of-monsterology-tp-vol1
Gordon has been a Freelance writer for over 20 years.
When he's not being ungainfully employed as a BAFTA-nominated video games scriptwriter, he keeps himself busy writing comics, novels, screenplays and Doctor Who audio plays.
Comics work includes Predator, Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper, Missionary Man, Necronauts, Caballistics Inc and Absalom, mostly for the UK's 2000AD.
Among his most celebrated work for 2000 AD is the miniseries Necronauts (2000–01), in which Harry Houdini, Arthur Conan Doyle, Charles Fort, and (inevitably) H. P. Lovecraft team up to defeat an incomprehensibly alien menace that seeks to destroy the human race. This won the 2004 Diamond Comics Awards, Graphic Novel of the Year.
Gordon's latest work is Department of Monsterology with PJ Holden. Upcoming this Fall is Robbie Burns: Witch Hunter also with PJ and Emma Beeby.
