About The Web Comic

Damn It, Monkey was originally conceived long, long time ago in state far, far away. At least far away from me. Damn It, Monkey! is episodic by nature – just like a T.V. Show, and I encourage binge watching it.

Originally toyed with in my dad’s basement, with a monkey puppet, it never really saw the light of day at first as it was intended to be nothing more than a sitcom, and being a teenager in the Midwest, it’s not easy to find someone to pitch a sitcom to, especially one starring a puppet – a puppet I actually still have. Somewhere.

It’s taken several forms over the years, and I think this is the best way to approach it at this point to really do what I want to do with the comic. I ended it last time as it was presented as a serial, and let’s face it, it works a lot better this way, even if the update schedule is few and far between by its very nature.

Damn It, Monkey! is drawn by atom8bit. Check out his other stuff because you care. You care, right?
Whatever. Make an effort, man.

On posting parts of episode 2

Going to try something different with this next episode of Damn It, Monkey!… I’ll post a scene at a time instead of going for a full act before an update, as I did with episode 1.
Mostly I decided on this because Episode 2 is going to be a fair deal longer, I believe (act 1 alone is 6 more pages than act 1 of the first episode.) And that’s after I cut out some unnecessary scenes. I also suspect more regular updates will be received reasonably well, and I can still work “filler” into the episodes when it’s warranted in between acts, as well. Think the Kingston Toilets advertisement.

Aside from that, the first act is penciled and I’ve inked a few pages already. Expect some concrete details within a week or so!

Concept Art And More On Episode 2

Episode 2 is now being pencilled! I’ve fully written it, although I’m sure it’ll be tweaked a bit here and there. It’s actually a completely new story, as well — Damn It, Monkey! in one form or another always began with the Martians being eaten. Now that that’s out of the way, some completely new content is coming. Timely content, somewhat, which wasn’t the intent but I’ll work with it.

I thought I’d share a couple pencillings of some concepts for Episode 2:

Stacy’s New Coat

Okay, I admit, this isn’t really huge to the story. It’s kind of a throwaway gag and not an obvious one at that. But the coat is pretty nice, yeah?
…and isn’t a bit odd to see her smile?

Some Nerds

These two nerds actually have a specific scene with Stacy while she wear’s her pretty new coat. Nerds play a big part of this episode, so here’s a couple of the more prominent ones in act 1.

You can actually see these and some more art on my instagram.

One final note, by episodes, I mean sitcom episodes. Not like chapters of a saga. If I meant that, you can guarantee that episode 2 would be completely about sand.

Finishing Up Episode 1

Long time, no see! I finally got the redesign of the site done, and more importantly all of Episode 1: I Like Martians is now up!

I’ve simplified and cleaned up the navigation a little, and I’ve also gone back and actually cleaned up, well, almost all of the pages before. So it would really be awesome if you just kind of read the entire thing again, start to finish. I crammed a couple of more jokes in as a bonus. I don’t promise they’re good jokes, but they’re there.

Now to get to work on Episode 2.
