So, just who is MONKEY, and what the heck is a WOMP?
Well, World of Monkey Productions was formed in 1992 to self-publish the independent comic book, The Adventures of Monkey, which first appeared in the form of a tiny give-away comic at the 1992 Chicago Comicon, later graduating to a full-fledged, "real" comic in 1995. The comic features Manchester Monkey, the super-hero sock-monkey President of The United Earth, a character that artist/writer John Mundt, Esq. (me!) first drew in 1972 at the age of six (which means that I am MUCH too old to be drawing cute little monkeys)! Since then, T.A.O.M. has been gaining fans (much to my surprise), including such noteworthy folks as Neil Gaiman ("I liked it!"), Jeff Smith ("I enjoyed the comic - I had one of those sock puppets, too!"), and Scott McCloud ("Hey! This is good!"). Check out a sample page below!
