Durontus: The Lost Serpent is a classic sci-fi comic book story written for monster fans by monster fans.  


Let's start at the beginning. Scott and Tyler grew up loving old monster movies, dinosaurs and classic science fiction tales.  Durontus spawned out of Tyler's love for Japanese giant monster films and claymation features such as Godzilla, The Giant Behemoth and Gorgo. Between the two of them, Scott and Tyler love this stuff so much, they really had no choice but to try their hand at a monster tale of their own.  


Tyler Sowles is an art guy and a full-time freelance comic illustrator. When he's not juggling indie titles (Fallstreak, Renegade, Frankenstein's Giant) and small press books (The Numbered - Arcana Studio, Tandoori Apocalypse - Storyboard GN, Deadworld - Transfuzion Publishing), he's working on his own titles like Hank Steiner: Monster Detective and Durontus: The Lost Serpent. He has even been lucky enough to have several pinups in IDW's Godzilla: Ruler's of Earth, and some cover/interior illustrations for G-Fan Magazine.
