October 10th, 2019. Vancouver Island, Canada.
Monsterella revolves around the continuing adventures of Montrossa Rella, AKA “Monsterella”, the warden of an intergalactic prison planet, where the galaxy’s worst of the worst monsters are imprisoned and isolated from the rest of the universe. All hell breaks loose when an unexpected revolt overthrows her and threatens the safety of the entire galaxy!
But her adventures are just one chapter of the book. In the style of the classic Vampirella magazines, Monsterella goes on to introduce other astonishing tales told and illustrated by a creepy collection of Canadian talents that will be sure to chill and thrill you cover to cover!
This all-thriller-no-filler third issue features cover art by Sun Khamunaki (“Lady Death”) as well as a second cover option by Julien Pilon (“Book Of Emma”). Here’s a look at what you’ll find in the pages of this issue:
