I love Hit Monkey!!! So spinning off of Deadpool #19-21, writer Daniel Way bring us a origin story for the mysterious Hit Monkey. The Character is like Mojo Jojo from Power Puff Girls mixed with Agent 47 from The Hitman Games. The story is funny the art isn't too bad and its juts a really fun story! Bullseye is the bag guy to! A fun read!

Un monete sicario que ha aprendido kung-fu y manejo de armas de un agente herido que va a dar en el monte con un monos que le cuidan, que mas se puede decir.

Todo tebeo con monetes, lleva una estrella extra, porque me da la gana.

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!

How do you take a title and idea that wonderfully bizarre and turn it into a comic so...blah...?
Well, treating it very seriously, writing no interesting background charactersand using a really contrived device to dodge having a lead character that didn't speak will do it.

Doesn't help when the other known marvel character that shows up feels like he was just slapped on because they needed a big name.

How does the guy that wrote 128-ish Deadpool stories write a story with so little humor or sense o

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

If you're a fan of Asian action/ martial arts movies, you'll dig Hit-Monkey. It's cheesy, bizarre, and dark in a fun-kinda-way

It was a short read, a graphic novel to be exact. Follows a predictable, flat, plot line that one can find in most action Hollywood movies (where the family/tribe has been taken away, protagonist wants to have revenge, revenge consumes him negatively, learns to be better, kills off his targets, the end).

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

This is not a book full of substance and deep character moments. It's not a book about true character or arcs or anything like that. It really boils down to a yes or no question:

Do you want to read a story about a monkey who is trained to be an assassin by the ghost of the assassin who is responsible for the death of his monkey friends?

If you said yes, read this book. If you said no, do not read this book. If you said maybe, consider that it is only four issues of content and know that the monke

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

I recommend if you like ludicrous action And Kung fu.
I'd recommend listening to wu-tangs 36 chambers while reading this if you like that kinda music. Which if you do-- you'd probably at least enjoy this.
Dalibor Talajic illustrates a gem on this one too.
Also -- the despicable/villainous Bullseye makes an appearance on the hit-monkeys growing hit list.
