Greetings everyone! It’s been a long time. Too long. I’ve missed you. So, what, “oh what” have you been up to T. Biddy? Glad you asked!

Over the course of the past few months I’ve been fine tuning the comic that many of you read on a semi-regular basis. There were some pages and story flow I was less than thrilled with, so I went back and took a look at it with fresh eyes and got some second opinions. My wife, Stacey and my friend Roy Maurer were very helpful in getting this project where I wanted it to be.

First, I want to thank everyone who was so encouraging with this project. It means a lot to me that people were reading it and enjoying it. So, what I offer to you is a little treat…

What you are about to read is the first chapter of The Mighty Monkey-Men, in it’s entirety. If you’ve read it before, I encourage you to take a look at it again. It has been rewritten, revised (with my actual custom created font) and in many places redrawn. I think this reading of it is truest to my initial vision of the project. I promise it will be a new experience.

What’s next?

For a limited time I am leaving this up on my blog. My next step is to seek print publication. So, in the event this comic is published in the future, this will be the last time you will read it online. That bears repeating. This could be the last time you read this comic online.

If you enjoy it and know someone else who might, I encourage you to tell them. Tell everyone. Even grandma. Be the person who knew about it before anyone else. Make them all envy you.

Thanks everyone! Enjoy The Director’s Cut!



Much like Blade Runner (minus the quality), the Director’s Cut of The Mighty Monkey-Men is NOW the only version available! To view the full series—start here.

Here it is! The conclusion of Chapter 1! Thanks to everyone who has been tuning in!

I’ll now be prepping the print edition of The Mighty Monkey-Men. I’ll be revising text and even redrawing a few pages…so watch this space as I’ll fill you in on the details during the process.

Don’t be “scurred”—a few pages may shift sequence, or disappear entirely. This is all to make the print editions as “dope” as humanly possible.

Once I’m done with my tweaks, I’ll be shopping this “mofo” around to see if any publishers are interested. So wish me luck!

Until next time! The Mighty Monkey-Men: always bananas!

New to the series? Be sure to follow me on Twitter if you want to know exactly when I post new episodes.

When last we left our heroes, they were chatting in the courtyard of an abandoned army hospital.

We are nearing the end of Chapter 1! Only TWO MORE EPISODES LEFT. Don’t know if you heard me…


A “Smallish” Note

You might have noticed that the text looks a little different this go ’round. Well, this is ‘cuz I’m using my own custom Monkey-Men font (tentatively titled “Monkey Brush”) that I finally got around to creating.

This is in part why you haven’t seen any new Monkey-Men stuff for a few weeks. There are a lot of behind the scenes design issues I’ve been cooking up, including a new logotype. I’ll be sharing all that stuff with you all as soon as I get closer to the completion of the print edition of this chapter.

It will be similar to what you have experienced…just better flow, some color tweaking, Monkey Brush type replacement and redraws. That’s all. 😉

The beauty of working on this project as a webcomic is that I get to work the kinks out as a go. As a comic newbie (save for my high-school days), I’m learning as I go—hence the color experimentation in the last few episodes. In the print edition—all these things will be consistent.

Until next time! The Mighty Monkey-Men: always bananas!

When last we left our heroes, Dr. Mandrill was joining his buddies in the middle of the night at an abandoned Army hospital.

To keep the story going, I’m going to post in black & white this week before I add color. This’ll also give you all a good idea of what it looks like before it gets the computer treatment. Let me know what you think! Look for a color update later on.

And finally…there’s only 3 episodes left before Chapter 1 wraps up! Be sure to keep tuning in!


Color! Woohoo!

Until next time! The Mighty Monkey-Men: always bananas!
