    And so far, this series is nicely walking the line between respect for those original stories and creations, and building a new story and mythology around the monsters. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 15, 2017

    The scope is increased and major answers are revealed making this a satisfying third issue. Like a good action film, Monsters Unleashed knows how to ramp up the drama. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Feb 19, 2017

    Lots of action, then lots of narrative exposition. This issue is a bridge between the battle from the previous issue and the impending one in Issue #4. The art is strong, at least. Read Full Review

    The latest issue of Marvel's current crossover event moves the story along and provided some much-needed answers. However, it loses its momentum in the process. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, I'm just not that excited about this series. The monsters are too generic with little in the story to flesh them out. There are plenty of tie-in issues to this event where these monsters may be explored more (issues numbered “.MU” in a variety of Marvel series), but I avoided buying most of those since I didn't feel as though they'd be required reading. If I can find some of the tie-ins on the cheap at a convention this summer, that may give me a bit more of what I was hoping for. On the bright side, I can still go back to those great black and white magazines with the same name! Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Feb 16, 2016

    This series largely exists for the artists to draw lots of monsters, but even Leinil Francis Yu's art isn't enough to make this worthwhile. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 16, 2017

    It might be asking too much out of a book titled Monsters Unleashed, but the best monsters still had a heart beating underneath their fur, wings or scales. This comic instead tries to rest entirely on spectacle while delivering almost nothing in substance " it winds up making this latest Marvel event feel disposable and meaningless. With the wrong art team attached and with the actual Marvel superheroes being reduced to bystanders in this latest issue, only diehards will find much to like about Marvel's latest monster mash-up.

    If you want to see what I think of this issue I'll refer you to my review for issue #2...my opinion of MONSTERS UNLEASHED #3 is about the same. Neat,thoughtless fun with really nice art. This issue got a slightly higher score only because, while Greg Land turned in some great looking pages last issue (some of his best, in my opinion),Leinil Francis Yu (always one of my favorite artists) managed to outdo himself here. This issue is such a pleasure to look at.
    SCORE: 8

    This series has become frustrating. Lionil Yu's art here is upper level stuff, totally awesome, but the story...not. What there is of story totally lacks any originality. This is happening because Inhumans. Fucking terrigen cloud, Marvel's explanation for everything. So this rating is a 10 on art, and a 4 on story. So, there you go.

    Kei Kawade's role is explained - he's a bloody Inhuman, sigh. According to Karnak, it is his destiny to stand against the "Leviathon Mother" and her kaiju hordes by summoning Kirby monsters from the 50s. Stiff dialogue, lazy art, and poor structure spoil some good plot twists here. Leinil Francis Yu is a great artist, but this issue is miles away from his best work. I dunno whether his deadline was too short, or he wasn't getting paid properly, or he just thinks Monsters Unleashed is stupid, but every page of art radiates a palpable aura of "I barely give a half a ☠☠☠☠."
