With the second chapter coming to an end, now would be a great time to read the 94 pages of Monster's Garden (www.monstersgarden.com) so far if you haven't already. Chapter 3 won't begin until 2014, so there's plenty of time to catch up.

If you are a fan of big, soft brute guys and cute little girl combos, there is plenty of that in Monster's Garden. This urban fantasy/sci-fi story set in a world filled with animal people, elves, and humans centers around the life of seasoned fighting champion and hobbyist gardener, Kilo Monster. One day by chance, he encounters an unusual, sentient, comic-loving robot girl named NIKA, along with her human family,Jaymi the sarcastic, sailor-mouthed engineer and Todd the nervous, battle-worn soldier. 

Much of the conflict in the story stems from a war that ravaged the neighboring country that continues to cause strife for its displaced citizens, as well as the brother who experienced the war firsthand in his childhood. The issue is nuanced and complex, with no distinct good or bad, but there is a darkness born from this conflict that threatens the world at large.

Monster's Garden is also a PoC, woman, and LGBTQ friendly comic. Admittedly, these topics do not come up in the main plot at depth currently, but the protagonist is gay, the sister is a woman of color, the brother is bisexual, and the military/police force has lady and non-binary folks in significant numbers. The world of Monster's Garden was made to be inclusive of all sorts of walks of life, something that fantasy/sci-fi genres could always use more of.

Monster's Garden is my first long-term comic adventure, with characters that have been close to my heart for years. It has been a grueling learning experience and a test of will at times, and the comic is not perfect by any stretch, but it's something that will always be worth it to me.

I would love for the story to get out there and gain a readership large enough to offer the comics in print. Since this is something I would like to do professionally one day, I greatly appreciate spreading the word around! Please enjoy the comic and thank you for reading!

I also love your web comics and I have been waiting patiently to see what happens next!
I also have more questions to ask, if that is ok with you?
