Comics this week

Monsters Unleashed #1- After the terrible Civil War 2, Marvel has gotten the hints from fans and got their latest event off to a flying start. From the opening, writer Cullen Bunn and artist Steve McNiven have monsters dropping from the sky and refused to let up on the action for a single moment. They even had all the teams on hand for the event so in this issue you get to see everyone from the AVENGERS to the CHAMPIONS as they clash with the monsters. Having said that, the most interesting things in this issue were the hints dropped that the most important people in this event are Elsa Bloodstone and the boy who summoned Fin Fang Foom. Hopefully it would prevent this from becoming a total slugfest…

Spider-Gwen #16- There’s a crossover? I didn’t know Spider-Gwen was having a crossover with Spider-man till I opened this issue and saw that this was Part 2 of the story "Sitting in a Tree". Basically this issue continue the story from SPIDER-MAN #12 which finds Miles and Gwen on Earth-65 looking for Miles’ father who somehow became a SHIELD agent. Since I don’t collect Spider-man, I have no idea what’s going on and can only say Marvel need to do a much better job marketing their crossovers.

Trinity #5- The answers to the mystery of what the hell is going on are slowly revealed this issue as writer and artist Francis Manapul setup the conclusion of the opening arc. At times very slow, I have to say this has been a good opening arc to the Trinity series. Not only do we get great character moments with the Trinity, we also see a uniquely sympathetic villain in Poison Ivy. DC needs to bring more issues/series like Trinity. It’s great.
