This Kickstarter isn’t monkeying around

The 4th Monkey  an Anthology of Awareness 

100 pages. 20+ Creators. 8 stories about environmental & social issues



But… The 4th Monkey? What does that even mean?

Playing on the 3 Mystic Monkeys proverb, “See No Evil Hear No Evil Speak No Evil”, The 4th Monkey is one who is not blinded. It is aware and wants the world to take notice before it’s too late.

***The “yes, we know all primates aren’t monkeys” disclaimer***
When the 3 Wise Monkeys proverb originated, there was no distinction between apes and monkeys – hence much of the past (and current) artwork done as chimps. Scroll down further – we even have gorillas!



Due to the heavy subject matter of some of the stories, the tones range from serious, too sad, and even funny. There’s action, drama, hijinks, and even super heroes. We’re hoping that every story locks you in and takes you for a completely different ride from the next.

Now, without further ado, here’s a 1 page preview from each of the current stories featured in The 4th Monkey. Every story is lettered by the great and power HDE.
