The 40 Years of Comics Project - Day 866: Anime Tentacle Monsters, May 2017
An amusing little indie comic about a girl who is attacked by tentacle monsters whenever she gets embarrassed. And, contrary to what you might thing, it's actually a relatively wholesome comic.
I picked this up at the Panel One festival in June, because there was simply no way I could pass up a comic called Anime Tentacle Monsters, especially as it was just sitting there on the table, looking all innocent and stuff. Mr. Lalonde's art and storytelling are excellent, the style of the comic erring just this side of North America in its manga-ness. The characters, especially our focal character Annie (or Amanda, if you're a jerk), present that level of cuteness that is required of the more...um....salacious tentacle monster manga, but actually manage to stay clothed and unmolested (for the most part) throughout the short tale.
There's a website for the comic, and I'm not sure if this is an ongoing series or just an amusing one-shot. As of right now, the site simply contains the word "Soon." I'm totally on board to find out just what is coming soon.
I'm going to stop now, before the puns take over the post.
To be continued.
