  • As the spotlight closes in on Marilyn, she must struggle to determine who she really is, and what monsters of the past lie still in the darkness. The evocative artwork, with careful shadowing and keenly drawn facial expressions, creates a lingering sense of empathy between the reader and Marilyn. Colors shift in warmth and intensity as the story progresses. While staying true to the real-life tale of Norma Jeane’s transformation to Monroe, this fantasy creates a rich imaginary world that pays h PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

  • A brilliant, hallucinatory meditation on the phenomenon of Marilyn Monroe. It will alter your understanding of both Hollywood and Marilyn. —DAVID CRONENBERG

 
 

Chasing fame and immortality, a downtrodden Norma Jean Baker runs away to the famously twisted Holy Wood, where dreams become reality.

She gives in to the powers that be, and allows herself to be reinvented into Marilyn, a real movie star. Though Marilyn dances in the limelight, it’s not bright enough to purge the demons that crept through Norma’s past, and lurk in the shadows of her present.

Written and illustrated by Tommy Redolfi, Marilyn’s Monsters immerses readers—through its abstract and evocative art and cinematic storytelling—in a beautifully dark world that obscures the line between dreams and nightmares.
