Last weekend, the Hidden Fortress descended upon Toronto, Ontario, Canada for TCAF, the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, and brought some copies of the freshly printed second volume of the three-part MONSTER comic. This volume features the work of Sam Dollenmayer, Michael DeForge, Keith Jones, Mickey Zacchilli, Marc Bell, Molly O'Connell, Seth Cooper and Devin Flynn, and once again has a beautifully printed letterpress cover by Heather Benjamin:

here's one of Marc Bell's pages, painstakingly reproduced on the Ryobi:

TCAF and Toronto were wonderful. Every chance I got to walk away from the table, I found a different nook or cranny where more tables were set up, with more people selling more comics. It was both overwhelming and awe-inspiring. 

here's a picture of Cheryl Kaminsky commandeering the table while I wandered off on one of my forays:


  1. Any chance that you'll be putting this and hopefully the SPX Monster up on the web shop in the future?

    1. by the end of the summer, we'll have all 3 volumes printed and available for sale as a set, with a silk-screened slipcase by Heather Benjamin. the separate volumes are not meant to be sold individually, but we've made some preview copies available at shows...

    2. Excellent! Thanks, I am really looking forward to these, they look gorgeous.
