“But that was a lie, wasn’t it my love?”

NEVER SEND A MONSTER

Tulpa (Tibetan: སྤྲུལ་པ, Wylie: sprul-pa; Sanskrit: निर्मित nirmita and निर्माण nirmāṇa; “to build” or “to construct”) also translated as “magical emanation”, “conjured thing”  and “phantom” is a concept in mysticism of a being or object which is created through sheer spiritual or mental discipline alone. It is defined in Indian Buddhist texts as any unreal, illusory or mind created apparition.

Never Send a Monster is an anthology comic featuring three separate but echoing tales “Never Send a Monster”, “Never Make a Monster”, and “Monsters Never Prosper.” Each story serves as a warning about obsession as witness by mystical manifestations (tulpas), each serving a master with their own intentions.
