“Turner, Monlongo, and Viz Media have reimagined the Mameshiba for a young audience, and ... the results make for fun, fast reading” Publisher’s Weekly

About the Author
James Turner started making comics as soon as he was first able to hold a pencil, and has been spouting a nonsensical whirlwind of monsters, robots and talking vegetables ever since. His acclaimed web comic 'The Unfeasible Adventures of Beaver and Steve' won tens of thousands of followers online, and his anthropomorphic crime fighting team “The Super Animal Adventure Squad” appeared weekly in the pages of the children's comic the DFC. He has sworn that he will not stop making comics until every bizarre character, every unfeasible adventure, and every terrible pun has been uncovered. But he might stop for a bit if someone offers him a biscuit.
Jorge Monlongo is a comic and book illustrator and game designer. He combines traditional and digital techniques to create worlds in beautiful colors that hide secrets. His work has been featured in several magazines, including Rolling Stone. Jorge lives in Spain.
