Monsters Unleashed Volume 1 Monster Mash TP – Marvel Comics lets loose the monsters with the first trade of their sci-fi series. Kei Kawada didn’t think he was changed by the terrigen mist that awakened his Inhuman DNA, until the giant monsters he drew, or “kaiju” became real. Taking the name Kid Kaiju, he and his do-good monsters Aegis, Slizzik, Scragg, Mekara and Hi-Vo take on other gargantuan creatures to protect the planet from ruin and disaster. Helping him is monster-hunter Elsa Bloodstone, but will the rest of Earth’s heroes allow them to help? And who is the new organization Intelligencia, and why are they obsessed with Kid kaiju and his oversized friends? Fans of giant monsters like Godzilla and his ilk will flock to this series like ducks to water, or giant monsters to major cities.
Splatoon Manga Volume 1 GN – Viz Media releases another series based on a Nintendo video game series. Turf Wars have begun in Inkopolis, and the team that inks the most territory will win. Goggle-kun, and the rest of Team Blue, Headphones-chan, Knit Cap-chan and Glasses-kun aren’t ranked as high as the other teams. But with some teamwork, and a touch of creativity, these four inklings, who can switch between human and squid forms, just might leave their mark on this tournament. Splatoon was one of the very few titles to succeed on Nintendo’s ill-fated Wii-U, and this title highlights a lot of the reasons why.
