The Complete Monologue KickStarter now live
The Complete Monologue is the latest KickStarter from Stuart McCune. And like the most recent campaigns, it’s funded almost as soon as it’s launched. Which means if the campaign continues at the current pace, a free comic will be thrown into any pledges (digital initially but potentially a print copy). There is also the option to get volume one of the MBC Library for those who missed that campaign.
You’ll be hard pressed to find anything like what McCune is making, small-press or otherwise, so it’s definitely something I’d be recommending for those who want something different.
From the KickStarter page:
Welcome to volume two of the MBC Library Editions.
This time I am pleased to bring you the collection I have been asked about again and again over the past few years. For the first time in print it is the complete series of Monologue. Monologue ran for three oversized issues a few years ago and it is a unique self-contained story.
There is no speaking, (or rather speech bubbles), in Monologue – as the title suggests it is an internal Monologue from start to finish and it is told entirely in caption. Many people have their own version of Monologue and I am pleased that it works this way for them. In the back matter of the original issue three I describe my version – “Some moments from our lives loom large in our minds and help or hinder our definition, our sense of self, Monologue is a comic about this concept.” More than this though it is at its heart a comic about time and how time does not exist.
