Marvel has been teasing us with various teasers simply displaying the letters MU along with writer CULLEN BUNN’s name and assorted artists, including Adam Kubert, Greg Land, Lenil Yu, Salvador Larocca, and Steve McNiven.

IN 1973, MOSNTERS UNLEASHED was a black and white magazine featuring stories starring such Marvel monsters as Werewolf By Night, Frankenstein, and everybody’s favorite macabre Man-Thing.

How does Diamond calculate the charts? It all starts at the comic book shop.

 

Data for Diamond’s sales charts — which includes the monthly market shares and all top product charts — are compiled by Diamond Comic Distributors from sales made to thousands of comic book specialty shops located in North America and around the world.  Additional sales made to online merchants and other specialty retailers may be included as well.

 

Unit and dollar market shares are calculated based upon orders for comic books, graphic novels, and magazines invoiced and shipped to Diamond customers during any given month, which comprises pre-orders, advance reorders, and reorders, minus any copies that are received back from a title marked as returnable. Please note that comics marked with an asterisk (*) have had their reported quantities reduced due to retailer returnability, and thus may rank lower on the charts than their actual sales would reflect.

 

The New Titles Count Chart includes all titles that were invoiced by Diamond to retailers for the first time during the month and is not the official solicited title count for the month. Variant edition comic books and graphic novels at the same price point count as a single SKU. Variant edition comic books, lenticular covers, digital combo packs, and graphic novels at different price points count as separate SKUs for each edition.

UPDATE: 4th (of at least 5) part of the DEAD NO MORE teaser revealed.

UPDATED 03/30/16 2:10:

Ok, Marvel has a 4th piece of the ever-growing DEAD NO MORE teaser image, STILL skipping the center which should reveal the mechanical armed menace we presume is DOC OCK or at least someone taken over by his mind. This new image includes familiar Spidey foes RHINO, LIZARD, and ELECTRO.

Dead_No_More_4

And here are all four images in position, around the missing center reveal:

Dead_No_More_Combined_3_30_16

ORIGINAL POST: Marvel has revealed the third…well…fourth part of their DEAD NO MORE IMAGE, noticeably skipping the third part that includes whomever is wielding those mechanical  arms (presumably Doc Ock, possibly the Living Brain containing Doc Ock’s min, also possibly someone from Spidey’s supporting cast now host to Doc Ock’s mind. …What? Spidey leads a complicated life.)

This new image adds Prowler, Scarlet Spider, and Madame Web to the mix, as well.

Here’s the new pic
Dead_No_More_3

And here’s the three pictures, in order, with the gap in the middle.
