“It’s always amazing when a comic creator comes along who can write AND draw so well that I feel the comic industry is blessed for having such a person create for us. Green Monk is amazing, so well drawn and well told; I hope for more of this, and more of any world Brandon wants to show us.”
—Ryan Ottley (Invincible, Amazing Spider-Man)
“Brandon Dayton’s Green Monk is an example of how rare it is for an artist’s work to look effortless while still mastering detail and texture, emotional grip, and most of all: compelling storytelling.”
—David Petersen (Mouse Guard)
“I was hooked on Green Monk right away. From calm, rolling vistas to sword fights with giants, Brandon brings it all to life beautifully. I was already a fan, but this the kind of work that should make him a household name.”
—Chris Samnee (Captain America, Daredevil)
