Official Press Release
After an eight-plus year run of several small-press collectives and solo
projects, Toby Craig challenged his comic-making friends with a request for
some monster inspired tales. The results are finally here. Seven stories,
each with their own varied takes on the monster theme.
Giant monster smack-downs, law and order on a different spatial plane,
musings of the walking dead, bible-beasts from the deep, chatty inner
demons, monsters under the bed, and things that go bump in the nightlife.
Monster Engine! edited by Toby Craig. Featuring work by Pedro Boyd, Brian
Canny, Peter Conrad, Toby Craig, Jim Rugg, Dalton Webb, Todd Webb, and Tom
64 pages; $6.00; ISBN: 0-9748513-0-2; Available February 2004.
About the Contributors
Pedro Boyd, a permanent fixture of painting studios, has cranked out his
fair share of comics for the web and in his own mini-comics. Examples of his
work can be found on the ithinkican.com website.
Brian Canny is a writer living in Dallas, TX where his unique grasp of the
written word actually makes him some money, as opposed to his infrequent
collaborations in ‘Engine!’.
Peter Conrad is an artist, writer, and illustrator in Northern California.
His comics appear in numerous anthologies, a few newspapers, and movie
screens in Silicon Valley.
Toby Craig is a crackpot self-publisher living in Texas. He continues to
keep an out-of-focus watch on the intangible and weird with the continued
publication of his ‘Engine!’ books.

currently spends his free time doing a book called ‘Street Angel’ from Slave
Dalton Webb has created several comic strips, editorial cartoons,
illustrations, and comic stories. He studied studio arts and graphic design
in Texas before relocating to Seattle. Despite being a life long Texan, he
does not have an accent. In addition to his mini-comic, ‘The One Regret,’
his work has also appeared in the ‘Vancouver Special,’ ‘Moxie,’ and
Todd Webb is one of those fortunate few that get to draw comics all day
long. When not drawing he’s making music with his band ‘Rangeboy’ or goofing
off. His book ‘The Goldfish and Bob’ was very well received and his cartoon
journal can be seen every week on his website.
