World Monster Headquarters 
The most terrifying comics and animation studio in the Midwest!
World Monster HQ (formerly known as Big Time Attic) has been at the center of the Twin Cities comics scene for nearly two decades.  Located in the heart of the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District, we are home to a rogue’s gallery of cartoonists, illustrators, animators, and writers.

Working space in World Monster Headquarters Comics and Animation studio

A Multi-disciplinary Space

Artists at World Monster HQ use a variety of modern and traditional tools to tell stories—everything from watercolors and India Ink to high-tech tablets and industry-standard software.

Our projects include award-winning comics series, games, illustrated books, and various print projects. Studio members have worked with major publishers like Dark Horse, DC Comics, Oni Press, Vault Comics, & Heavy Metal, as well as small local presses and arts organizations.


Since we are a working space, we are only open to the public for special events such as art crawls and open studio weekends, when visitors may tour locations around the Arts District and see what studio life is all about. During these events we typically have books and prints available for purchase.

You can also find members of our studio at comic book conventions, book fairs and art shows around town and across the country.  For updates, follow our artists on social media by clicking the icons below their names, or follow the studio’s official Instagram account.
