Monsters Unleashed Ongoing

The MONSTERS UNLEASHED event series is just getting underway (with issue 2 coming out this week) but it has been announced that I will be writing an ongoing series featuring the new character Kid Kaiju, famed monster hunter Elsa Bloodstone, and a team of giant monsters taking on the most gigantic threats the Marvel Universe has to offer! With art by David Baldeon, this one is going to be a lot of fun for fans who want something completely new in their superhero books!

Giant monsters have been reintroduced to the Marvel Universe, and after the events of the Monsters Unleashed limited series, the movers and shakers of Marvel’s hero community simply must take these behemoths seriously as a threat. With that in mind, Kei Kawade and a small group of new kaiju have been tasked with combating giant threats that surface all over the world.

From their hidden island base, Kei and a group of powerful monsters are on call, ready to face these gargantuan Leviathans wherever they may rise.

This is a series firmly rooted in the Marvel Universe. Kei, Elsa, and company will be interacting with a number of Marvel heroes, and they’ll be encountering some extremely powerful, extremely dangerous villains in addition to the giant monsters they must face.

I’ve done a number of interviews about the book, so check them out!

Monsters, Monsters Everywhere… But No Leash in Sight

The first issue of Monsters Unleashed came out yesterday, and I couldn’t be happier with the reaction from readers. Seems like folks still really like their giant monsters, especially when they are battling Marvel’s greatest heroes! As a long-time fan of kaiju, this pleases me greatly.
