John Lupo Avanti's debut graphic novel 'Monster Myths' is a visually dynamic portrayl of his capabilities and future potential. John is a uniquely versatile illustrator who started work as an animator at the age of nineteen, and now currently works as a freelance illustrator in the realms of fine art, public mural production and tattooing.

 

Here's the overview: Alfredo, a recovering felon turned working stiff, resides in Lower Scabo where working-class people live under the tyranny of the evil Cannibals Motorcycle Gang. After being beaten and left for dead by the gang, Alfredo decides to recruit a group of graffiti writers to instigate a war between the riff-raff of Lower Scabo and their neighbors in the well-to-do community of Northview. In doing so, Alfredo transforms from a two-bit perp into an iconic rebel, determined to free Lower Scabo from the control of those seeking power. An over-the-top, dark comedy pitching biker gangs against clean-cut, real estate developers and, in the middle, an unlikely hero stirring the pot in the hope of saving his neighborhood.
