Hey there readers and Happy New Year once again. We are getting to the comic book posts a day later than usual since we had the whole “2017 Wish” for you to digest first. So here I am with the Marvel Comics stuff first and one of the interesting things is the whole “Monsters Unleashed” storyline. I’ve been posting the news about these over the last couple of months in an effort to have you better prepared for the invasion and you can re-examine those articles by clicking on THIS LINK. As we’ve done over the past years, the press copy and images come from the Marvel side of the fence and the I’ll close up with some personal choices. Here we go.
