Jason Fischer To Mash 55 Monsters Into Upcoming ‘Monstroleum: Monsters Of The Dragon’s Keep’ Series [Art]

Jason Fischer aka JFish has got his monsters on his mind and his mind on his monsters — and he’s transporting them to paper with Monstroleum: Monsters of the Dragon’s Keep, a five-volume encyclopedia of sorts covering the characteristics of 55 total foes (11 per volume) that readers might encounter on a dungeon crawl. But that’s not all. To expedite the process, JFish is offering three tiers of subscription preorders that will put even more mythological menaces in the hands of his fans.

From Fischer’s official website:

Ever since I was a kid I’ve loved monsters. from Greek mythology to video games and everything between, monsters and their stories have always held a special place in my heart. Since the beginning I’ve loved to draw monsters of all kinds and I expect to be drawing them for a long time coming. To that effect, my newest publication is an expression of my love. I’ve drawn 55 different monsters, each within a unique dungeon environment, accompanied with a bio about the monster’s personality, traits and interests.

Each of the black and white volumes will measure about 6×4″ and come wrapped in a full-color cover. The first volume is set to debut in March, with the following four volumes arriving monthly through July.

There are three preorder options, each with a bonus. Preordering just the first volume for $5 gets fans a copy of Monstroleum, plus a drawing of “any monster of your request.” For $25 fans can subscribe to the entire five-volume series, with a different monster drawing of their request inside each issue. The most monsterous way to go, though, is getting the $35 preorder package. It includes all five Monstroleum volumes, five total requested monster drawings, an 8×10″ print of a buyer’s favorite monster from the series and a limited edition silk screen print depicting all 55 monsters from the series.

My only issue with this project? I’d like to see Fischer draw 95 more monsters for a total of 150. I… may simply have been conditioned to feel this way by a certain video game franchise, however. You can check out Monstroleum at Fischer’s official site for full the full skinny.
