About Wally Monk - AKA "The Paint Monk"

A comic book enthusiast who is still living in the Bronze Age of Marvel and not willing to budge, Wally serves as an editor helping numerous small press publishing imprints. He maintains his own blog at where he writes about comics and the sword-and-sorcery/science fiction genres. 

 He maintains the unofficial "Ka-Zar the Savage Fan Page" on Facebook. 

Blogging and reading graphic novels are his relaxing pastimes. Wally spends the bulk of his day celebrating his biggest blessing and life vocation - working as a consecrated religious in the Roman Catholic Church.


From the Paint Monk

"If you are curious about the theme of this blog, yes, I am a member of a Christian religious order and 'Paint Monk' seemed like an appropriate moniker. 'Paint Monk' is a reflection of my younger days, when I would occasionally paint miniature figurines for role-playing games. Comic books are my primary hobby now. When I'm not busy within my full-time vocation, I enjoy blogging and brushing up my writing chops.  Please don't expect any off-topic chat here, though - 'Paint Monk's Library' is entirely about comics, miniatures and perhaps an occasional hobby-related sidetrack. You won't find much talk about secular arguments or politics here, and I'd prefer to keep it that way. Call it a hobby 'safe space' if you will!

I also plan to keep the site family friendly. No matter the topic, this will also be a place where you don't have to worry about anything inappropriate for the workplace. I'll do everything I can to make sure Paint Monk's Library is a place for appropriate and respectful discussions which perpetuate the love of our hobbies!"

As always, I am - Wally (AKA Paint Monk
