Someone is doing terrible things to the Marvel Monsters, and only Kid Kaiju can stop it! But that's not all!

It's the big, bold, beautiful celebration of all things Monstrously Marvel that you won't want to miss!

    Word Of The Nerd - Daniel Kelly Sep 2, 2019

    I am firmly in the target audience for this comic. As a kid in the 1990s, I would partake in all monster content I could and often wondered how I would fare with Godzilla by my side. Thankfully, in 2019, I can now live vicariously through Kid Kaiju. Read Full Review

    Marvel Monsters is a kid-friendly introduction to the biggest and baddest Marvel has to offer. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Connor Casey Aug 28, 2019

    There isn't much to the story beyond visuals (and an amusing callback to a character from classic literature), but if you're in to watching giant monsters brawl it's a fun time. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Aug 30, 2019

    This issue may not be for everyone, especially at a $4.99 price tag. However, having looked at the preview for this issue, it should not come as a surprise that it is mostly a pin-up book with a little bit of story attached to it. Read Full Review

    If you're buying "Marvel Monsters" #1, you're buying it for Superlog and Gaigan-Yamazaki's Showa-era Kirby-adjacent cutaways. Boldly inked monsters set atop intentional palette shifted red-oranges with subtitles in English AND furigana" the only quality distancing these pages apart from literal lost treasures is the glossy paper they're printed on.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - jddunsany Aug 28, 2019

    I like Kid Kaiju and his menagerie of monsters, but this is thin fare. While I appreciate the effort put in by the various artists (Stephanie Hans' stuff is just gorgeous), the decision by Marvel to sell a cut-price art book and wrap it up in an almost insultingly superficial story is a poor one. Everyone writer, artists, but most importantly the reader gets short-changed by that approach. Read Full Review
