Monkey & Spoon is the second of three books that will tell the "tale" of an animal's exploits. All three books will be designed and formatted to compliment each other. These books might be considered a distant cousin to the big-little books. Each page will have only one panel, so that the reader can focus on the detail of each picture.

TOP SHELF PRODUCTIONS (http://www.topshelfcomix.com/)
MAR042843F Dang #1 32pg $3.50
by Martin Cendreda
'Dang!, the first prime-time comic book by fabulous new cartoonist
Martin Cendreda, follows the sad, tragic life of good ole' Herbert Hound and his encounters with obnoxious teens, fashion conscious yuppies, and twin homeless orphans. Guffaws abound in Martin's delightfully drawn comic, with an art style hinting at Clowes and Chester Brown, yet with chops uniquely his own.' 'Dang!' was a minicomic, and the cover of #4 matches that of the Top Shelf version. I haven't found any samples of this particular comic on the Web, but Cendreda's own Webpage is http://www.zurikrobot.com/ .
