Monsters Holding Bitches Shock Zine No. 1: Kong & His Pals


Sure, the Pulitzer may have been announced this afternoon, and while Anthony Doerr may deserve a lavish post at The Oxen of the Sun, I'm more excited to share this with you. From highbrow to lowbrow, behold: Monsters Holding Bitches No. 1: Kong & His Pals.


I found MHB on instagram (here) and have been enjoying his posts mixing old monster movie stills and new illustrations submitted by monster-lovers all over the country. When I heard a zine was in the works, I promptly headed over to Black Cloud Company's Etsy shop and placed an order.


The zine is great and exactly what you'd imagine. Love the EC-style "SHOCK" on the cover, and the hint of a MHB "Fiend Club" on the back.

No one's asking, but some thoughts for issue No. 2: how about a letters page? A message from the editor? Subscription details? The possibilities are endless.
