Since the first issue, “Monocyte” has been a grim portrayal of the future of humanity, yet it is equally beautiful at the same time.

The series follows the story of two feuding immortal races thousands of years in the future, and the slumbering necromancer, Monocyte, who has been awakened to introduce death to the world once again. With poetic dialogue and some of the best artwork in horror right now, “Monocyte” is like nothing else out there today.
The creative team took the time to sit down with BD and chat about their series from IDW Publishing. With the fourth installment set for release at the end of the month, the book has almost reached its conclusion.

Today, IDW announced that Ed Greenwood will be writing the brand new ongoing Dungeons & Dragons: Forgotten Realms comic series. If you are anything like us, and you know your fantasy literature, this is incredibly epic. Joining Greenwood are Lee Ferguson and Sal Buscema. As part of the series launch, D&D is also running a contest that gives you the chance to put your own character in the series! Check the full scoop after the jump.
