Down With Monsters: A Spartan Buddha Fairytale

Authored by Zeph David
Edition: 1

Hey there, boys and girls! Would you like to hear a story about a highly successful warlord named Octavius that killed a lot of people and stole a lot of stuff? Of course you do. Octavius had everything on Earth that his heart desired. Everything, except peace. It seemed that monsters got in the way - with their narrow labels and nasty beliefs. As we all know, monsters are bossy and pretty insecure. So who did our pushy, nationwide tyrant turn to to save the day? Himself? Of course not. Popular opinion says when a crisis arises a hero must be called for to come rescue us from bad feelings and all sense of personal responsibility. Well, in this world, the world of Warlord Octavius, heroes are in short supply. Octavius's world may want a spandex wearing, compliant hero to take out its trash but they will receive a fashionably rebellious champion to remind them to do their chores instead.

In Down with Monsters, Zeph David creates an illustrated, black and white storybook composed of poetic reflections, pro-wrestling like theatrics and sardonic prose. What does this have to do with Spartan Buddha, the wandering, self proclaimed "World's Greatest Fighting Philosopher"? Everything and nothing. This is his fairytale. Experience more at
