The Vortex[]


  • In editor DJ Tyrer's estimation, definitely the worst cover ever due to his self-professed inability to draw people – though he does still like the appearance of the Genethief itself!
  • This issue was the last of the second full year (1998) of Monomyth to actually appear in that calendar year: the remaining four issues and Yearbook all went out during 1999, despite retaining their 1998 cover dates – because, at this time, the artists were given the blank cover (with number and date already printed on it) to draw onto, which would later be photocopied, rather than them supplying a picture to be scanned in and added to the cover.
