 The Baboon is the wholesome, pulpy, technicolor, adventure-of-the-month comic you forgot you were missing.

The Baboon is my love letter to the pulp stories of the 40s and 50s. The tone light, fast, and fun. Keeping the vein of the wish fulfillment that runs through the stories of Batman and Robin, Johnny Quest, and Terry and the Pirates. Stories made for all ages. And in this lighter approach tackling some heavier themes, such as: death, adoption, and family life, without having to get too realistic. The Baboon and his team are a family and they act and deal with problems accordingly. They may butt heads, but at the end of the day they love each other.

To the world at large, The Baboon is a nothing more than a government myth. A figure of the shadows taking down evils wherever they lurk. To his crew -three of the greatest heroes of their time- he is a man of daring and compassion, who will stop at nothing to defend the world from the greatest evils known to man. But, to his adopted nephew, Jamie, Barton Marlow - The Baboon- is the coolest guy in the whole world. And now in his new life of adventure, Jamie wrestles with being the regular kid he once was and living up to his uncle's expectations. A man whose fantastic exploits are unequaled for narrow escapes, fantastic  adventures, and endless thrills.

 The Mustelid Menace- While in search of the Jackal formula -a super soldier serum that could change the dynamic of the entire world- the baboon is captured by the nefarious Professor Weezal. His only hope of escape is with the help of his amazing crew. But, things are strange on Mount Mustelid and the Jackal formula may be in full effect. Time is of the essence as the Baboon battles his way through armed men and hulking, carnivorous monsters. Let's just hope they never have to go back. 

All this and more in The Baboon's first full length adventure (60 pages of comics awesomeness.)

 WHY A HARDCOVER BOOK?

The Baboon is an ongoing series of stories and presented in the European album comics format. Nice, fun, digestible comics for all ages. Like Tin Tin or Lucky Luke. In keeping with this theme the book is going to be presented first in Hardcover. This style of comics gives me the ability to tell a story and not be confined to a traditional comics page count. Also, a pretty Hardcover always looks great on your shelf!

JAMIE is a cartoonist living in Saint Petersburg, Fl. He loves old pulp comics from the 40s and 50s and Dungeons and Dragons. He is so excited to finally get this passion project out into the world. Other works include: Joey Ryan: Big in Japan, Lucha Underground, The Whisper, Dodger, and KICKING ICE!
