Comix about Beasties… and Hunters!
Monster Hunter has become incredibly popular these days. Just today I was talking to a friend when he mentioned MH Tri. It went something like this “Dude, I saw this trailer of a Wii game. It looked totally amazing with em big swords and dragons. I wonder what the name of it was…” – “Monster Hunter?” – “Right, right! Monster Hunter! What is the game about?”
It’s pretty awesome to see the game getting popular. Especially if you’ve been playing for years and now see how hunters struggle to make their way to the Top hunter ranks ^^ Anyway, following this “new trend” a lot of people have started drawing comics and mangas of Monster Hunter. Huge weapons, giant wyverns, tales of heroes… kind of seems predestined for great stories. Enclosed you find my top 4 comics with a short description of each one. Also, the site will from now on feature a “Comic” section. So if you know any other Monster Hunter Comics (the same goes for other cool Monster Hunter sites) please leave a comment and let me know.
Inkoseh’s I want to be a Monster Hunter is probably the most popular MH-online comic by far. It’s very well drawn and the stories are well thought out and really funny. If you love to play Monster Hunter, you will love this comic! READ IT HERE
Monster Hunter Orage is the only commercial MH-comic I know. At least the only one that has been published in English. The art is from Mashima Hiro who already published popular mangas like Rave or Fairy Tail. He was also an assistant of Eichiro Oda (One Piece). The story is quite short and a little too crazy for my taste. However he really put his heart into the drawings and concepts of the monsters. It’s definately worth having a look at. READ IT HERE
The Monster Hunter Chronicles are a fan-project of Rafael Izoshy, a Brazilian Artist, on DeviantArt. It’s very well drawn and really entertaining to read. Though only three chapters have been published so far, the first impression of the comic is great and I hope for many more pages. READ IT HERE
Hellwingz’ Monster Hunter Comic is still pretty much at the beginning. The art is great but it is kind of slow paced. I’m still looking forward to see the first couple of action scenes. Make sure to check this one out too. READ IT HERE
