As we’ve been dishing out the comic book highlights for few years now as well as being media attendees of the NY Comic Con for some time, I am going to aim at bringing even more press releases about big happenings in the medium. I realize that I’ve said this before over the years but it still applies and here is some insight into a cool and creepy new initiative that Marvel Comics is taking.
The Press Release:
New York, NY—September 16, 2016— Raining down from the outer reaches of the galaxy, rising up from the depths of the ocean, and emerging from the recesses of the Earth – monsters are staking their claim to the planet. The only thing standing in their destructive path: the united Super Heroes of the Marvel Universe.
It’s all hands on deck, as the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men, Inhumans and Champions, joined by a who’s who of solo stars – Deadpool, Spider-Man, Black Panther – battle an endless deluge of monsters and the mysterious force that controls them. Will the combined might of the Marvel Super Heroes be enough to save the day? Or will they need help to arrive from the unlikeliest of places?
Marvel Comics is excited to present MONSTERS UNLEASHED coming January 2017.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to say that I love this idea and that is because I was one of those comic book collectors who grew up with stacks of the classic Marvel monster comics like “Creatures On The Loose”, “Where Monsters Dwell” and the others that just escape my memory at the time of this writing. Some of my favorites from back then were It the Living Colossus, Groot (yeah that one) and Fin Fang Foom. There were more but I am not going to line them all out for you as much as I suggest you try to find reprints or even dig through the comic boxes of some older family members and see if they will let you read them. Always ask though since these issues are well over 30 years old. Okay so what do you Monster Maniacs think of this new angle from the House Of Ideas? Let me know in the comments section below and if you are tweeting and such about it, use the hashtag of #MonstersUnleashed
