ABOUT AERO ZERO & MEN PLUS MONSTERS
MEN PLUS MONSTERS
Some years ago, artist AERO ZERO lamented that there were no quality M/M comics to read that had the kind of stories and characters they wanted to read about. After having drawn comics about LGBTQIA+ characters for many years, AERO ZERO decided to rectify this.
In 2014, AERO ZERO put a name to two of their M/M comics, MEN+MONSTERS and ACE OF BEASTS, and set out to print and bind them for the world to enjoy - and so, MEN PLUS MONSTERS was thrust into being!

ABOUT THE ARTIST
ARTIST & CREATOR
AERO ZERO is an ace non-binary comic artist and professional colorist who has made many LGBTQIA+ fantasy and action-adventure comics and worked alongside industry professionals since 2012.
They were born in the 32-bit era and have been playing video games ever since. They have a BA in illustration from an art school where they learned traditional media; however their digital work methods are mostly self-taught.
Their oldest characters are Xerxes and Osric (the main characters of ACE OF BEASTS), both made in 2009 and still close to their original designs! Their first comic was KYRIA, published online in 2012. Aero's art has been featured in many professional comics, anthologies, and other works.
They currently draw/write ACE OF BEASTS and MEN+MONSTERS among many other comic projects, while running their comic sites MEN PLUS MONSTERS & BARA COMICS, as well as the MEN PLUS MONSTERS shop. Their comics and art have gained critical acclaim from thousands of readers around the globe.
PRESS KIT INFO
MEN PLUS MONSTERS
MEN PLUS MONSTERS is a collection of all comics, art, and creations by AERO ZERO, combining storytelling, fantasy, and erotica into beautiful art that celebrates love above all else.
The MEN PLUS MONSTERS SHOP has been online since 2015, and is the only place to get AERO ZERO's lovingly drawn bara erotica comics.
AERO ZERO's comics feature asexual, pansexual, POC characters and more, highly original designs and worlds, as well as witty writing with quite a bit of humor. They are fun, explicit, consensual, beautiful, M/M comics featuring men and monsters rendered in handsomely colorful detailed art, with expansive world-building.
COMIC & COMPANY FACTS
The MEN PLUS MONSTERS Shop started when AERO ZERO took pre-orders for MEN+MONSTERS Volume 1 in October, 2015.
MEN PLUS MONSTERS is located in California, and MEN PLUS MONSTERS books have all been printed by professional artisans in the USA.
The MEN PLUS MONSTERS team is just the artist and creator of MM: Aero Zero, a California-based colorist and comic artist who is committed to creating and printing the highest quality man-on-monster erotica stories.
Name spelling and pronunciation: The collection and shop are called MEN PLUS MONSTERS, the comic title is MEN+MONSTERS, and both are pronounced ‘men plus monsters’ - NOT ‘men and monsters’, or anything like that.
MEN+MONSTERS is abbreviated M+M, and ACE OF BEASTS is abbreviated AoB.
MEN PLUS MONSTERS comics have over 10,000 followers on social media, and on the main site over 55,000 pages are read every week (which is rising!)
AERO ZERO has sold over 300 copies of each of their MEN PLUS MONSTERS books, including MEN+MONSTERS Volume 1 and 2, KNIGHT OF ALANOC, and ACE OF BEASTS Volume 1 and 2.
BARA COMICS was launched in April 2018, with new one-shot comics also from AERO ZERO.

In addition, several other pieces of MEN PLUS MONSTERS merch such as charms, totes, notebooks and more have made an appearance and sold out at conventions (Leamington Comic Con, Confuzzled, KitaCon)!
