Today’s find comes from Mitch Schauer and Mike Vosberg for their new graphic novel “RIP M.D.”. The book is described as “a creepy, fun-filled, all-ages adventure introducing Ripley Plimpt, an 11-year-old boy whose ordinary life is turned upside-down when he discovers that monsters are not only real, but are also in desperate need of his help to overcome their very real problems”.

A sweet and fun take on monsters, the creators found inspiration from the classics. Both Schauer and Vosberg lament the old horror movies because the audience’s empathy was with the monsters. Schauer used the example of Frankenstein, because although he was viewed as a monster, “he just wanted to be understood”. That is the direction RIP M.D. is going. Beginning with the rescue of a vampire bat, our protagonist RIP will try to understand and help the monsters. A fresh idea that is gorgeously drawn, this book is definitely one to check out. Expected to be released in August, watch for more coverage on RIP M.D. in the coming weeks.
