MONUMENT is something different in comics. It’s a classic pop record in comic book form. It's part Twin Peaks and part HBO’s Big Little Lies. MONUMENT is a comic book about a small town with a lot of secrets. Red envelopes start arriving all over town revealing people’s deepest, darkest secrets and each chapter is about what those people do once the secret is out. While the letters are arriving, the local police are struggling to find a missing teenager. Are the letters and the missing teenager somehow connected? MONUMENT is a gripping murder mystery involving soul-crushing lies systematically being brought to light. The mystery is mixed with a series of bittersweet, quirky and slightly romantic slice-of-life stories set. MONUMENT is about community. It’s about the 90’s. It’s about the power of truth.
By supporting this Kickstarter, you get to read both the already completed- first chapter and the latest chapter. The goal is distribute print and online versions of MONUMENT #1 and #2.
