Kill All Monsters is a comic set in a post-apocalyptic world in which the giant monsters have already won. Civilization has been all but destroyed and humanity has been driven underground, but hasn’t yet given up the fight. Operating out of a hidden temple in Africa, the Kill Team is a trio of pilots who use giant, robotic suits to take back our planet from the beasts that have overrun it.
Volume 1, Ruins of Paris, opens with the team’s first exploration into Europe where they find more monsters than they’ve ever encountered in one place, but also unlikely allies and a secret that will change the war forever.
Kill All Monsters began life as a free webcomic and the first few chapters are still available for viewing in that format. The print collection of Volume 1 will be published by Alterna Comics and is scheduled to arrive in stores in June 2013 and will also be available for mobile devices via comiXology around that same time.
