Daniel Way can be a great writer. Sadly, he is wasted on this banana of a project. An unnamed assassin is on the run from a both a botched assignment and a double-cross. Heading into the mountains to escape his pursuers, the man is rescued from certain death by a clan of monkeys. Yes, you read that right - monkeys. As the assassin trains his body back into fighting shape, one tribe member mimics the fighting styles and techniques. As you can imagine, the assassin and the tribe are slaughtered by...more

That was a fun read.
A monkey is lead, on a quest for vengeance, by a hit mans ghost.

Dalibor Talajic illustrates a gem on this one too.
Also -- the despicable/villainous Bullseye makes an appearance on the hit-monkeys growing hit list.

Except that ... this time in place, its a red faced macaque.

Nothing really special in the story really, very cliched action story (just that the assassin/protagonist is a monkey, who can't even...more

This was a fun little story-arc of Way's creation: Hit-Monkey. A really well-told shoot-em-up, assassin story featuring a Monkey as the assassin. What else is there to say except: awesome!
