AGP has been prepping for a long time to bring you MONSTER WORLD: THE GOLDEN AGE, and we are pleased to announce that the first issue is currently up for preorder in Diamond Previews!

MONSTER WORLD began at the doors of World Studios, where private detective Henry Barrymore was asked to investigate a case of multiple murders on movie sets and ended up uncovering an occult conspiracy that went back for decades!

Now an experienced magic user, Hank is on a quest to find Shirley, the Galgamaic witch who was captured when the studio was destroyed. Hank summons Nybbas, the demon of knowledge, to get information on the world before monsters existed.

Nybbas elaborates on the creation of the nephilim and how special dimensional portals enabled the pure Enocians to escape the wrath of the Watchers. Hoping to find one of these portals, Hank follows Nybbas’s clues to the plains of Oklahoma, where a strange farm boy has managed to keep his house standing in the face of an angry elemental mage named Rybach.

But something much worse than Rybach is coming. Something ancient, sinister, and branded in fire.

Demons, occult magic, and the history of monsters and humanity are at the center of MONSTER WORLD: THE GOLDEN AGE Issue 1, shipping to comic shops on July 24. Perfect for fans of HELLBLAZER and AMERICAN GODS, this issue is an ideal starting point for new readers with no prior knowledge or backstory required. The issue features incomparable art by Piotr Kowalski, vivid colors by Dennis Calero, and letters by Jenn Pham, accompanying publisher Philip Kim‘s original story and script by Holly Interlandi.

There are two covers available: Cover A by Kowalski and Calero is a striking image of Hank being haunted in New York, and Cover B by the amazing Nat Jones is an action-packed variant featuring farm boy Cole in a monster fight!
