Hey everybody, if you follow us on social media then you’ve probably noticed several posts lately about Monty the Dinosaur. This brand new all-ages series from Action Lab Comics is about to hit our shelves soon, and we are SUPER excited to have creator Bob Frantz coming to us live and in person on Saturday, September 3 at Max Toys & Comics to meet fans and sign copies of the debut issue!
But who is Monty? Well, he’s a lovable (talking) dinosaur that just wants a friend. He’s tired of people being so nervous around him just because he’s a big dino with sharp teeth. He can’t help it that he looks ferocious (actually, he looks pretty cute), and he sure can’t help it that people won’t take the time to simply get to know him.
So, after several attempts at making a friend, Monty finally retreats to a cave where he plans on living alone forever more. After a while, he decides that he can’t just stay hidden away for the rest of his life. If he truly wants a friend, he’s going to have to get out and keep trying.
Monty puts on a disguise and visits the local playground where several children are playing, but every time he tries to approach any of the kids something goes terribly wrong. Just as he is about to give up again, a little girl named Sophie notices him and asks if he would like to play a game of soccer. She knows he is a dinosaur and everything, but guess what? She doesn’t even care! In fact, she thinks it’s totally awesome!
So begins the friendship of Monty and Sophie, and so begins Monty the Dinosaur’s very own comic book adventures. If you have a young reader in your household, they are sure to love this great new character. If you want to find out more, then we welcome you to attend the Creator Spotlight event featuring Mr. Bob Frantz, happening right here at Max Toys & Comics in downtown Corbin, KY from 1:00 PM-3:00 PM on Saturday, September 3.
Come on down, bring the kids and fall in love with Monty the Dinosaur from Action Lab Comics!!!
