Black and White Wednesday: Tony Isabella's Monster(ous) Essays

What it is, Groove-ophiles! Groove-ophile Mike Mikulovsky has suggested that Ol' Groove share the eerily educational frontispieces from Monsters Unleashed #'s 6-10. These fillers were written by sometimes editor Tony Isabella and sported art by Ernie Chan (then Chua), with the last couple being illustrated by Arvell Jones/Duffy Vohland and Pablo Marcos. Tony did a great job of cramming lots of info into such a short space, and the art was extremely good. I think Mike's right--you're gonna dig these!


  1. Hey Groovster! Thanks for posting these. I remember as a kid/ young teen I really dug these. I especially like the mountain gorilla one. It makes you think how many creatures/animals might have been mistaken as monsters. Causing them to be hunted to extiction. Saddly just because they might have been weird or ugly looking to humans.

  2. I'm glad you guys enjoyed them. They were fun to do.

  3. Thanks Tony! For all your hard work over the years. Great reading your comments here & Rich's saturday bogs. I've been forwarding these links onto John Romita SR, Rich, Herb Trimpe, Mark Sinnott/Joe's son & Roy Thomas. To name a few to hopefully get their post a comment here.
