MONSTERS UNLEASHED! was Marvel's second entry in their line of black-and-white horror-oriented comic magazines designed to compete with Warren's EERIE, CREEPY and VAMPIRELLA. The series featured a variety of material: original stand-alone stories; adventures of previously established characters from the Marvel Universe (e.g., the Frankenstein Monster, the Man-Thing, Tigra and the Wendigo), reprints from Atlas' horror comics of the 50s, and miscelaneous articles, most often providing overviews of classic monster movies. Of note: the Frankenstein serial presented in MONSTERS UNLEASHED! brought the character from the18th and 19th Century settings of his color comic series to the present-day Marvel Universe; also, issue #3 reprinted the hard-to-find first appearance of the Man-Thing from the rare SAVAGE TALES #1. Poor sales forced cancellation after issue #11, and the Frankenstein serial was continued in THE LEGION OF MONSTERS #1.
