Where there is Kirby, there be monsters. I have to say, the story of this multi-issue story is just…Nonsense.
Cap goes to another dimension to fight monsters who steal things from us, and then he brings back a few to Earth so Spider-Man and Cap fight them. Spidey doesn’t even want to be a part of this.
And yet he still ends the tale with a typical self-indulgent, self-pitying monolog.
The monsters are summoned to Earth by a group called The Night People and Mark Gruenwald brings them back during his run (because of course Gruenwald would do that). I’m tagging them as a group, under protest, since they do return for at least one more post.
Well, at least the MTU crossover has Batroc…
…Even if he’s written comically
And Cap and Falc have a lovers’ spat.
Marvel was pretty famous for not printing negative letters, and even for “stacking” the letterpage with planted correspondence. But even they had to let in a comment about what a let-down Kirby’s return has been.
