Anyone for Calamari? (Monsters Unleashed #10 Comic Review)

Monsters Unleashed #10

Written by: Justin Jordan

With the help of creature expert Elsa Bloodstone and the crack professionalism of Damage Control, Kei Kawade and his team of beastly creations travel the world protecting the innocent from monstrous threats. No beast can harm the world when Kid Kaiju is on guard with his Monsters Unleashed!

Last time in Monsters Unleashed:

Kei has come to learn that if he is to fight alongside his monsters like a team, he needs to get to know them better. First up for some one-on-one action is the fearsome Scragg! Together, Kei and Scragg help some scientists handle a giant bee epidemic. All ends well as the bees settle on Monster Island with the team and Kei looks towards the next adventure to learn more about his pals.

Today’s Monstrous Issue:

After an accidental butt-dial from Elsa Bloodstone, Kei and his robotic pal Aegis rush off to help deal with a crazy eldritch cult. After a rather harrowing battle with a very kraken-esque monster, the day is saved once again. And it looks like Kei and the gang may no longer need Elsa as a babysitter. Who’s up next for some inhuman-monster bonding? Come back next issue to find out!

My thoughts:

Another fun issue comes around from the team at Monsters Unleashed. So far this new storyline of Kei getting to know his monsters is a nice change of pace from the larger first few arcs of the series. Kei continues to be an interesting lead character and all his monsters are fun to look at and read. The plot remains as silly as last time, but when your whole comic is based around a kid summoning monsters from a notebook, depth isn’t really needed too much. More then anything, Monsters Unleashed is just plain fun, and I continue to look forward to the next issue.

The artist has changed again and this time I will say it is better then last issue, if not truly stupendous in comparison to other books. It’s serviceable and gets the job done. As long as the monster fights are well drawn I’ll be happy with it.

Summary
Monsters Unleashed is a simple book, but that's part of it's charm. As a fan of big monster movies myself, this issue satisfies my love of monster brawls and goofy plots. There's nothing really deep under the surface of the book, but there's still enough heart behind Kei and his team to make you root for their adventures and keep reading along.
