There’s A New Team In Town, Monsters Unleashed Gets an Ongoing.

monstersunleashed_001_ongoingcvrThis spring, the most destructive force in the Marvel Universe is answering to…an eleven year old boy? Exploding out of the Monsters Unleashed event, five gargantuan beasts are smashing their way into an all-new ongoing series in April’s Monsters Unleashed #1! Creators Cullen Bunn and artist David Baldeon bring you a brand new adventure as big as the monsters themselves!

If you’ve got a big problem, they’re the big solution! To fight the monsters of this world – you need to unleash even bigger monsters! With that in mind, Kei Kawade a.k.a. Kid Kaiju and monster hunter extraordinaire Elsa Bloodstone assemble five of the deadliest, most destructive monsters imaginable. AEGIS, SLIZZIK, SCRAGG, MEKARA and HI-VO – gargantuan beasts with the power to level city blocks. What is their mission? Are they here to help…or destroy? Their appearance hasn’t gone unnoticed – as everyone from the Avengers to S.H.I.E.L.D. to Damage Control wants to shut them down!

In the release Bunn said:

Kei and his monsters are under a lot of scrutiny from the heroes of the Marvel Universe, government agencies such as S.H.I.E.L.D. and corporate entities like Damage Control. And it’s not just the forces of good who are paying attention to Kei and his monsters. There is a sinister cadre of villains who are very interested in Kei and his unusual abilities.

Can the denizens of the Marvel Universe accept a team of massive marvelous monsters in their midsts? Or will they be deemed too dangerous to be left unchecked? Either way – they’re here to stay!
