The adventures and discoveries of the First Family from the monster hunting of the Furst Brothers in the 1950s to the multi-generational family of explorers of today.


  • Augustus discovers the existence of Onggu the Omnivorous in Romania, draining energy from local power plants.[1]

Late January:

  • Upon their return from their interdimensional trip, they discover The Innocent Gun, where Qestoth Sul said it was on an alien or pre-civilization like island. Simon Magus warned them of the weapon's potential and they had to face the Demonwaves.[14]
