Newest Work by Dan O'Brien and Review of the First Issue

Well, the time has come to announce Dan O’Brien’s latest project: Mobsters, Monsters & Nazis: a collaboration between Dan O’Brien and Steve Ferchaud, who illustrated Conspirators of the Lost Sock Army and the Loose Change Collection Agency. What I am revealing today is the sketches for some of the interior illustrations (which will be black and white) of the first issue. It will be released as six issues (eBooks) starting on Halloween. It is influenced by film noir, pulp comics, and an abiding love of Lovecraft. It is now available for pre-order and Dan will be promoting it heavily starting in the month of October. He would love to hear what you think of it so far! Visit him at: or on Twitter, @AuthorDanOBrien

Have a look at the great sketches in the book.

My Review:
In addition to all of the great sketches it promises to be a great read.

If you are looking for something with that old time noir feel then this is the book for you.  Reading this was like sitting in a movie theater watching an old private eye movie.  The difference is some of the characters are monsters, such as a character with tentacles on his face, a troglodyte, werewolves, while others are mobsters and Nazis.  They are all after one particular item.   Derrick Diamond is in the process of delivering it when it is stolen from him.  He is hot on the trail of the thief. He is led to the Yellow Monarch. Here is where we meet the soulful singer Ava Harpy.  From here the action is ratcheted up a notch and we are left with a cliffhanger.This is a definite must read.  I'm looking forward to reading more by this author.
