Marvel Reveals MONSTERS UNLEASHED! Variant Cover Art
Marvel has released several pieces of variant cover art for the upcoming new comic book series Monsters Unleashed! I'm really pumped up about this series, and I think the team working on it at Marvel is going to pump out some pretty fun monster stories.
The series was previously described as featuring "a massive, simultaneous attack on the Marvel Universe by all of these monsters." Now we have an official description that breaks it all down for you:
Raining down from the skies, rising from the depths of the oceans and emerging from beneath the very Earth itself – monsters are invading, destroying everyone and everything in their path! The only thing that stands in their way is an army of the strongest superheroes in the Marvel Universe! But even they may not be enough to stop these towering titans! It’s all happening in Monsters Unleashed as the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Champions, the X-Men, the Inhumans and more band together to stop complete and total annihilation!
Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso explained:
“If there ever were a monster who stood 10 stories high or taller and created mayhem in the Marvel Universe over last several decades, they’re gonna be in the story.”
Writer Cullen Bunn added:
“It’s an all hands on deck situation, Imagine something like the Hulk, only much bigger. With the destructive force those creatures have, the heroes will have to mobilize much more quickly. The heroes find themselves very quickly in a situation where they have no downtime, they have no chance to take a breath. They’re moving constantly against what are essentially cataclysmic threats over and over again.”
It was previously explained that each issue will be illustrated by a different Marvel artist, and some of those artists include Steve McNiven, Leinil Yu, Adam Kubert, Salvador Larroca, and Greg Land.
Monsters Unleashed will start being rolled out on January 18th, 2017. Check out the art below!
