Good morning. Thank you for visiting the Daily Monsters the week, when they were actually daily again. I had fun doing clips for you at the old fast and furious pace, and I really loved the stories you posted. Check out yesterday’s haul by clicking here.

And now, without further delay, please enjoy this small, yet grand finale:

I just committed to the next Daily Monster project yesterday afternoon. It’ll be something fun in a different format, and most definitely a collector’s item. (No, not a toy. :^) Stay tuned for more after the AIGA Conference in Memphis.
But there’ll be other things between now and then, I’m sure.

For now, I hope you’ll have an excellent weekend.
And of course I hope you realize that 344 LOVES YOU

    Say wilderluege, au revoir and arriverderci to Strange Serious Matter. Yes you knew him—particle physicist and brilliant mind behind the team who for over 30 years poured their hearts and souls into the building and activation of the Hadron Collider. But Strange Serious Matter had a deep dark secret. Always in the back of his logical scientifically sophisticated head, he had doubts and dreadful thoughts of the outcome of what could happen once the switch was flicked on. And so, Mr. Matter had prepared for the worst.
    Late last night, and with no hesitation, Mr. Matter implemented his plan and jumped ship after activating his jet pack retrofitted lab coat when the black hole meannies started to escape the collider and suck up parts of the huge lab. As he was being blasted out of the lab, his bottom lip and jaw were sucked into one of the meannies black holes but he managed to free it with a bit of extra turbo power from the rear. He escaped with minor lower facial damage.
    Rumor has it that he will be residing in Quantum Mechanicsville on Mars until further notice and has changed his name to Strange but-no-longer-Serious Antimatter.

    First Monster BACK on the Moon. You don’t think they sent Armstrong and Aldrin up there alone, do you?

    Hi Stefan,
    Thought you might like to see the latest elementary school monsters from Syd Breton’s class at Moseley Elementary.
    Thanks for sharing your greatness!
