Fan-favorite Djeliya creator Juni Ba introduces a new fantasy universe in an upcoming miniseries of connected one-shot stories, Monkey Meat. This five-issue, action-packed romp will launch from Image Comics in January 2022.
The Monkey Meat Company made its fortune selling cans of processed meat all around the world. Using that money to fuel their wacky experiments, they turned their native island into a magical hyper-capitalist hellscape where even demons have to pay rent!
“Monkey Meat is a passion project born of wanting for us all to poke fun at how dystopian the world is,” said Ba. “It’s fun and colorful but most of all aims to be cathartic, and bring you great cartooning!”
Follow the lives of the creatures of Monkey Meat Island in this series best described as the storytelling style of W. Maxwell Prince and Martin Morazzo’s Ice Cream Manmeets the satire of Jonathan Layman and Rob Guillory’s Chew.
Monkey Meat #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, January 5. Monkey Meat #1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
