Los Angeles, CA (May 8, 2014) – After a successful Kickstarter campaign spearheaded by writer Nicholas Doan, Monster Elementary, an all-ages graphic novel, is now available for purchase online.
Monster Elementary is a fun, witty, comedy/adventure comic for children of all ages written by Doan featuring five monster children based on classic monster movie archetypes.
Desmodus is a vampire child that looks down on humankind. He is the leader of this group. He loves being a monster and all the powers and privileges that come with it. Des wears a daylight ring that allows him to walk safely in the sunlight.
Lukos is a boy werewolf and Des' best friend. He usually has to rein Des in and keep Des from doing anything drastic. Lukos has developed an unhealthy addiction to juice boxes.
Francesca was assembled in a laboratory by her mother. She has a very simple view of life, a big heart, and doesn't understand why others are afraid of her.
Rags is a mummy that doesn't really know who he is underneath his wrappings. His identity issues lead him to try on different personalities.
Gilda is a fun-loving lagoon monster. She has an untainted view of her world and has never even considered what other people might think of her. Gilda proudly and happily marches to the beat of a different drummer.
These five monster children are forced to attend a human public school after their monsters-only private school is raided by the FBI. To their surprise, they're not allowed to eat any of the other students. The monsters’ adventures and experiences hiding their identities and growing up are the focal point of the book.
Monster Elementary is 92 pages and contains a series of short stories that range in length from 1 to 22 pages illustrated by a rotating cast of artists:
