Starting with ‘21 Down’ the duo write incredibly free flowing stories with great characterization and smooth pacing. But it was one of their next projects that really put them on the map as not only writers, but incredible writers. That was DC’s ‘Monolith’.
‘The Monolith’ is the story about Alice Cohen who is a young lady struggling with drug addiction and her friend Tilt who like Alice, has a lot of baggage. The two begin to live in the house that Alice inherited from her grandmother that also has another surprise resident…a Golem! And this Golem is very protective of his new friends.
“This was the book that I stopped being curious about Jimmy’s writing and just fell in,” said Matman. “The book featured an incredibly moving story about second chances and friendship, and sometimes could get kinda violent. A dozen issues of pure comic magic especially the last panel of the last issue.”
Drawn by Phil Winslade (and Tomm Coker and Peter Snejberg), the book sadly never caught on with fans, but thankfully is getting a second chance in an over sized collection!

“This is one of the coolest series in the past, oh… ever,” Matman said. “I’m glad that Image has picked up the series so fans who missed it, or just discovered Palmiotti and Gray, can catch this one. And with it being in an over sized collection, Winslade’s art is just gonna jump right off the page.”
