“Remember reading Grant Morrison’s stuff in DOOM PATROL or ANIMAL MAN and just being kind of blown back into your easy reading chair at the sheer amount of ideas and poeticism going on in each and every page? That’s kind of how I feel right now as I set down the first issue of Menton3 and Kasra Ghanbari’s MONOCYTE.” – AIN’T IT COOL NEWS

“MONOCYTE is like Deadwood being sodomized by HR Giger in a cathedral, as narrated by Tom Waits.” – BEN TEMPLESMITH (Fell, Wormwood, 30 Days of Night, Hellspawn)

“Just going to throw this one out there, and take it for what you will, but I am pretty sure that although IDW’s “MONOCYTE” might end up as more of a cult hit than anything, that by the end of 2011 this will be high up on my list for Best Artwork in A New Series.” – BLOODY DISGUSTING

“MONOCYTE is a beautiful excursion into the belly of the beast. I highly recommend taking the trip. Hell has never read so well or looked so stunning.” – STEVE NILES (30 Days of Night, Criminal Macabre)

“From the preview provided, I’m still not sure if I know exactly what is going on. And yet my immersion in the comic is so complete, I can hardly complain. It’s refreshing to see such a conscious rebellion against mainstream comic book standards.” – FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND

“MONOCYTE is a fantastic new addition to the sci-fi/fantasy genre. Filled with menton3’s beautiful artwork, MONOCYTE combines cerebral complexity and entertainment in one damn fine package.” – ASHLEY WOOD (Hellspawn, Zombies vs Robots, Lore, Popbot)
