Monster Dudes invade Chicago

Monster Dudes is a self published comic book written by Dave Scheidt with art by Matt Fagan, two local Chicago creators.

Monster Dudes #1 is wacked-out tales of your favorite monsters living the everyday life. The teen wolf always has to get a hair-cut and Sasquatch has more than a few crappy jobs. This book is great to just relax and read a few stories. It reminds me of all the great cartoons in Mad Magazine. Monster Squad is one of my favorite movies, Monster Dudes keeps the memories alive.

“Most of the inspiration though comes from every day life and just me and Matt being huge weirdos and making stories that make us both laugh,” Dave Scheidt describes his thinking process.

In 2012, Scheidt and Fagan hope to have a very successful convention schedule.

Monster Dudes #1 is available in these stores in Chicago.
