Monty Whooooooo?!!

As a relatively new comic book writer I’m startled to see my name on five graphic novel collections already – two from Titan, two from Marvel, and one from Vertigo.

I  wrote Death Sentence for Titan comics (English language) and Delcourt (French language), plus stories for Marvel’s Hulk and  X-men series, and a short story and a four issue series for the DC Comics Vertigo line.

I’ve worked in computer games for ten years, shipping games in the Need For Speed Carbon and SSX On Tour for Electronic Arts, and All Points Bulletin for Realtime Worlds/Electronic Arts.

I came third in an international screenplay competition which led to one of my short screenplays being optioned as a feature film. I  also write radio plays, novels, and am working with the BBC on an online multimedia project. My agent is James Wills at Watson Little Ltd.

I have a literary graphic novel in production, plus new comics for American publishers, and some scripting work in other media. I enjoy creating artwork, covers, storyboards and character designs for my work, if needed.

Some reviews for my work:

“The best British comic in years” Buzzfeed

“the best comic-book event so far this year, bar none.” Warped Factor

“something just as crazy and wonderful as Grant Morrison would create.” Graphic Policy

“A masterwork” Pop Matters

“ranks up there with greats such as Alan Moore and Warren Ellis” How To Love Comics

“exceeds the medium…the equal of Dostoyevsky or Dickens” Pop Matters

“I haven’t stumbled upon a narrative as infectious as this since discovering Alan Moore’s riveting piece, Watchmen” Horror Novel Reviews

like Watchmen on an acid trip” Vada Magazine

“just brilliant…genuinely original” Mark Millar

There are more reviews for Death Sentence London (with art by the incomparable Martin Simmonds) here, and Death Sentence (co-created with legendary comic artist Mike Dowling) here

As far as work-for-hire goes, I’m always interested in brilliant, groundbreaking projects. If that sounds like you, please drop me a line using the contact link above.
