New York, NY—October 18th, 2016 — This January, it’s all hands on deck as the Avengers, the Champions, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the X-Men, the Inhumans and more stand toe-to-toe with hordes of giant monsters in MONSTERS UNLEASHED #1! As Cullen Bunn and five of the biggest artists in the industry bring you a spectacular clash of heroes vs. monsters, the action is spilling out into the rest of the Marvel Universe! Today, Marvel is pleased to announce SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #1.MU and AVENGERS #1.MU as the first two one-shots getting in on the massive monster mayhem!
“Monsters Unleashed is rampaging across the Marvel Universe and a select few of your favorite titles this January,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “Eight oversized .MU one-shots that add even more over-the-top widescreen action than the main Monsters Unleashed series can contain. Who doesn’t want to see the Avengers, Spider-Man and Deadpool throw down with some giant monsters?”
It all kicks off in SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #1.MU, as the Marvel’s resident odd couple comes face-to-face(-to face?) with one of the hundreds of giant behemoths smashing and stomping their way across the Marvel Universe! Spider-Man swings into action, but what can one wallcrawler do against just one of these massive monstrosities? Thankfully he has Deadpool backing him up! Just kidding, Deadpool is going to be about as helpful as he usually is. Then, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes take the fight to the monsters in AVENGERS #1. MU! Can a team of some of the strongest characters around hold the line against the monster invasion? Or will they be crushed like everyone else?
