The mystery "MU" project that Marvel has teased for the past week has been revealed to be a new title, Monsters Unleashed. The name was revealed at Marvel's Diamond Retailer Summit presentation this evening in Baltimore. Cullen Bunn will write the series, joined by artists Salvador Larocca, Leinil Yu, Steve McNiven, Greg Land, and Adam Kubert.
No details on the series beyond the title and its logo were revealed, but the name itself has a history at Marvel. The name Monsters Unleashed comes from a black-and-white horror magazine Marvel published in the mid-1970s, with stories about Man-Thing, Frankenstein's Monster, and others. There's another interesting connection to the name: it's the subtitle of the second live-action Scooby-Doo film, written by Guardians of the Galaxy's James Gunn.
Monsters Unleashed is scheduled to begin in January 2017.
