FIRST LOOK: IDW unleash The Army Of Doctor Moreau

December 16th, 2014 by Marc Comments


One of the most thought provoking and talked-about novels of the 19th century, The Island of Dr. Moreau challenged morals, science and identity. The groundbreaking science fiction tale has been the source for many adventures since, and this March IDW will release the print collection of the story that takes these ideas and conjoins them with the endless possibilities of the comic page: The Army of Dr. Moreau!

First appearing digitally from Monkeybrain Inc., The Army of Dr. Moreau introduced a frightening alternate take on the evils of the famed island. Trapped and abandoned with Nazis, Beast Folk, and terror, a small unit of Allied operatives find themselves up against threats like no other…

“David, Sara and I are all incredibly excited to seeThe Army of Dr. Moreau find a home with IDW,” said series artist Carl Sciacchitano. “Monkeybrain has been wonderful for us, and we can’t wait for this book to reach an audience who either missed the series on Comixology, or just prefers to read their comics the old fashioned way. And if you read it the first time around, rest assured that the print version has some new content thrown in as well!”

Written by award-winning journalist, filmmaker and author, David F. Walker (Shaft) and featuring the art of Carl Sciacchitano, the 7-issue series will join the previous Monkeybrain titles Amelia Cole, Edison Rex, Skybreaker, Artful Daggers, Knuckleheads, Red Light Properties and Mask Of The Red Panda in print!

Powers co-creator Michael Avon Oeming raved “The Army of Dr. Moreau is a fun and intriguing look at genetic manipulation, brilliantly brought to life by David’s writing and Carl’s art. Highly recommended!”

Look for The Army of Dr. Moreau this March on the shelves of your local comic shop!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
