The latest issue of Monkey Brain‘s digital first comic High Crimes is available at Comixology. I have read the review copy and it’s exceptional and chilling. Page one gives you the same cold feeling when you open a walk-in freezer. Christopher Sebela’s striking and circumstantial words pair with Ibrahim Moustafa’s art on various levels. Lesley Atalnsky’s colors have a Laura Allred feel, and help create the grim mood.
All the characters are detailed from their extreme weather clothing to their facial expressions, word choice, and body language. New readers will appreciate the strong pace and look forward to catching up with the back issues. BTW, I wouldn’t skip the user’s guide if I were you.
I say it’s worth the $1.
High Crimes #10
Writer: Christopher Sebela
Artist: Ibrahim Moustafa
A partner in distress, a team of killers, a dead body full of secrets, the roof of the world. Only a few hundred feet separate Zan from all of them, but in the last desperate stretch towards the summit of Mount Everest, they may as well be miles away.
