Yellow Walls, The Monkey Bizness Confessions by Chris Kill

Yellow Walls, The Monkey Bizness Confessions https://buff.ly/2P2xPyE is a 60-page, B and W with yellow cardstock cover, digest size, True Stories, Mature Readers comic zine created by Chris Kill.

Chris explains that about a decade ago he drew comic strips about his first work experience at an indoor playground business. Now some ten years later he has put together this comic that explores the true stories of his and his coworkers exploits while working within the yellow walls of Monkey Bizness!

The comic is divided up into sections and each section has an overall theme that runs through it. The themes covered include odd jobs, cleaning nightmares, pranks and hijinks, love and lust, workplace dating, smut, drugs and alcohol, and crime and punishment. Stuck in there somewhere there are also recollections about a penis shaped cake, hiring a monkey, sex on an air hockey table, and larceny!

Chris provides a fun, and at times outrageous, look at the youthful recklessness of young adult life in the workplace. Through it all he illustrates the shenanigans with a simple, consistent line that captures each characters’ uniqueness and details a believable background setting for all the action!
