Even though we at the Outhouse continue to be the industry's mortal enemy, we still find ourselves promoting comics for whatever measly pennies we can get our hands on. Hey, we need to eat here. You know how much a chili dog and jumbo soda at 7-Eleven cost? Sometimes though it's great to promote indie comics, stuff made by star-eyed newcomers with the potential to become the next big sellout. Today's shameless promotion goes to The 4th Monkey: An Anthology of Awareness.

Put together by 19 indie comic creators, The 4th Monkey is a comics anthology aimed at raising awareness of of social and environmental issues. These include suicide, poaching., politicization, bullying betrayal, water pollution, pesticides and alcoholism. Playing on the 3 Mystic Apes Proverb, 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 storytellers range from style to subject matter, but all with a critical eye to what's happening in the world. The complete roster is as follows:

About the Author - Scary Cleve

All his life, Scary Cleve wanted to write gruesome stories in a grim Scottish castle while sipping whiskey and contemplating his existential angst. Instead, he ended up living in Florida, so he does all this with a tan. He's been a life long fan of comics and plans on writing some. Until that day, he writes and edits about comics over at PopOptiq under the guise of Ben Howard, and he's more than happy to spread his filth to the Outhouse. Other interests include horror movies, heavy metal, and writing screenplays and occasional short stories.
