“There is a universal feeling of being trapped in our current times and economic/social system,” Ba said. “Something akin to powerlessness and anger. While Monkey Meat deals with all kinds of themes, this first issue is what happens when someone with those same feelings as us is given super powers and a hatchet to free himself…if he can.”
“Monkey Meat is a passion project born of wanting for us all to poke fun at how dystopian the world is,” Ba told Image when the series was announced in October. “It’s fun and colorful but most of all aims to be cathartic, and bring you great cartooning!”
