Was it only a year ago that Monkeybrain, the digital imprint headed by Chris Roberson and Allison Baker, launched and set off a whole digital first craze? It was indeed. A year later the imprint seems pretty well estbalished at Comixology and print editions of such much lauded features as Bandette are on their way.
