A Field Guide to Midwest Monsters


Aaron Blecha and Jason Felix have just published a wonderful new book called “A Field Guide to Midwest Monsters”, which features illustrations and descriptions that will help you to identify 20 different monsters that you may encounter if you travel through the Midwest.

In the Field Guide, you’ll find twenty Midwest Monsters plus diagrams, charts and a ten page sketchbook. Amusingly distorted and deformed cartoony drawings of monstrous Midwestern types, from Cthulhu Boy to Supreme Udder, Sausage Fingers to Moo Moo Mame, are accompanied by descriptions of each beast, and words of caution about how to approach. “Having advanced from brainless aroused parasites to brain-dead functional zombies, they spend every waking moment become one with their favorite game.”

Aaron Blecha designed a post card for our post card series and is the man behind Monster Squid.
