Marvel Announces Monsters Unleashed Tie-In One-Shots

When “Monsters Unleashed” stomps onto newsstands in January, it won’t be contained by a mere flagship event series. No, it will also bring with it a number of gruesome monster-filled tie-ins in its wake. Marvel has announced that eight one-shots will be released to tie-in with the “Monsters Unleashed” event, and Marvel has identified the first two. “Spider-Man/Deadpool” and “Avengers” will get tie-ins, numbered #1.MU to signify their involvement in the monster mash.

Both one-shots, released in January, will feature the titular heroes fending off hordes of monsters as they deal with the monster invasion. “Spider-Man/Deadpool’s” tie-in comes from writer Joshua Corin and artist Tigh Walker; “Avengers” #1.MU will be written by Jim Zub with art by Sean Izaakse. Marvel notes that further #1.MU one-shots will appear on other titles in February and March of 2017.

“Monsters Unleashed is rampaging across the Marvel Universe and a select few of your favorite titles this January,” said Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel in the announcement. “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?”

The “Monsters Unleashed” event is a five-issue series written by Cullen Bunn with art from Steve McNiven, Leinil Yu, Adam Kubert, Greg Land and Salvador Larocca featuring pretty much every monster ever featured in a Marvel comic. The event will see teams like the Avengers, Champions, Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men and Inhumans all fighting against a monster invasion, and now these eight tie-ins will see how other heroes deal with the event.

“Monsters Unleashed” #1 arrives in January, along with “Spider-Man/Deadpool” #1.MU and “Avengers” #1.MU.
