With the release of the second issue of Monsters Unleashed being less than one week away, Marvel is understandably allowing the hype train to gain as much momentum as possible. As such, they’ve released a preview in an attempt to sate the appetites of readers everywhere.
Uniting some of Marvel’s greatest superhero teams such as the Avengers, X-Men and Guardians of the Galaxy, Monsters Unleashed pits a number of today’s top pop culture icons against, well, giant monsters. Sure, it may seem like an absurd notion, but not only is it making the dreams of some come true, but the publisher is apparently satisfied enough with the concept that an ongoing series is slated to kickoff later this year.
In addition to seeing the aforementioned groups kick some kaiju-sized butt, you can expect Canadian powerhouses Alpha Flight to get a piece of the action. Although they may not be as widely known, they certainly do have their fans in addition to having launched the career of Jim Lee.
