Mothra in the ongoing is cool. Also, holy god Hedorah finally made it to Africa. Banno must be thrilled :lol:

I mean, assuming Hedorah is in the issue.

I love Zornows work. There always so freaking EPIC! I'm a huge fan of his cover for KOM issue 5. Even though it was a craptastic comic, Zornow's covers never ceased to amazed me. I'd love to see him do a whole issue just like Matt Frank did with Legends.
Wonder if that will ever happen?

Got the GODZILLA LEGENDS complete paperback the other day. The story featuring Anguirus and Destoroyah was really neat. In particular, I loved the page where it shows some of Anguirus' past "losing battles". Wish I could say the same about the Rodan story.. pretty meh. The Titanosaurus story was pretty interesting. It didn't feature a lot of Kaiju action, but was very interesting. I wonder if they plan on making that a full mini-series at some point?

Just have the final two stories to go, and I'll be done with this one. Probably will get the GANGSTERS and GOLIATHS complete paperback next. I was gonna get the the 3 paperbacks for KINGDOM OF MONSTERS, but I think I'm gonna wait for the complete hardback of that in October.

EDIT: Just wanna say that I've read the first 4 issues of KOM, but had since stopped to wait for a complete set. I almost bet KOM is better when you can read ALL of it at your own pace.

Hey guys...

If maybe you want to see a continuation of the Kiryu Saga... send IDW a message/letter about how cool it would be etc.

I just rewatched GxMG and Tokyo SOS tonight and I just sent a message to Matt Frank about it, and sent IDW one too.

letters@idwpublishing.com

I just think if we would ever get to see it, this would be the best way!

Fandom name for the duology of Godzilla X MechaGodzilla (2002) and Godzilla X Mothra X MechaGodzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. (2003)

And the saga concluded in S.O.S., I don't need any more comics.

Let's have a comic that fills in the continuity gap between Terror of MechaGodzilla and Destroy All Monsters.

It'll be just as sad...it'll just get sadder at a faster pace.


Oh, and apparently we're going to be getting MOGUERA as a monster eventually.

So I figured I'd revive this old thread since there isn't any better place to write this. I finally got around to reading both History's Greatest Monster and Kingdom of Monsters. I've now read everything.

I heard a lot of bad things about Kingdom of Monsters...but I actually really liked it. Sure, it would have been better if the original plan of leading to a post-apocalyptic world had gone through, but the first 2 trades I really got a kick out of it. They were definitely political but it lampooned both sides of the aisle. The 3rd trade had a decline in quality, for sure. I could not believe that the Sergeant would let a little girl co-pilot Mechagodzilla with him. It also seemed to resolve really quickly as a rush job. Still, it did end on a neat cliff hanger.

History's Greatest Monsters was similarly better than I expected. Though, again the ending was really stupid. The creators clearly didn't know what they were going to do with Boxer and having him just go away by having him jump into Godzilla's mouth was plain stupid.

Probably going to get a lot of flak for this, but I enjoyed both on par, and in some points greater than Rulers of the Earth.

If I had to rank the series so far, it would be as follows:

1. Half Century War
2. Gangsters and Goliaths
3. Rulers of the Earth
4. Kingdom of Monsters
5. Legends
6. History's Greatest Monster

I know this will never happen, but what I would really love to see is a mini series based on the various unmade Godzilla films such as Steve Miner's Godzilla KOTM in 3D, Jan de Bont's Godzilla, and of course Toho's past unmade Godzilla films such as Godzilla Vs Gigamoth, Godzilla Vs the Devil and Batman Vs Godzilla.

I would particularly love to see a 60's period comic with Adam West's Batman Vs. Godzilla. That would be so totally freakin' awesome!

And yes I know, Toho would never allow it :roll: But it would still be cool :D

That would be pretty amazing. I wonder how much it'd cost to commission something like that from an artist. Probably pretty pricey.

I just remembered this website:
http://americankaiju.kaijuphile.com/american-godzilla/ag94page2.shtml

Years ago some fan named Todd Tennant actually started working on a graphic novel of the Jan Depont's Godzilla script, but as far as I can tell he hasn't made a new page in years. Last time I heard on a forum (don't remember which one) that he was in talks with the writers of the script (Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio) to try to get the graphic novel published with Toho's permission. But I haven't heard anything about that in a very long time.

His art is is really good, he actually did some work for Blue Water comics. So I wish them the best of luck in publishing their graphic novel. I sure would buy it in a heart beat.

So Baltimore Comic Con is in a week or so and Eric Powell (Kingdom of Monsters) Duane Swierzynski (History's Greatest Monster) and Herbe Trimpe (Marvel's Godzilla) are all going to be there.. I'm planning on picking up some signatures, but if anyone has any questions for any of them let me know and i'll try and ask..

I had met Mike Raicht (Legends 3) at a con earlier this year and had a great time talking to him, but i was a big fan of his issue so i already had a bunch of questions in mind.

Rulers of Earth has some cool concepts and ideas. I enjoy the fight sequences, but I'm sad that we very rarely have anything of actual consequence. Monsters appear and then fight, are defeated, and then ultimately return later on. I also wish ROE could have shed all the terribleness of the previous ongoing series just so it had a clean slate to work with.

But I think Matt Frank's work is fantastic. I can't say enough positive things about the stuff he does.

i had fun. Got to talk to Eric Powell a bit. talked to Swierzynski about Ultraman. Dean Haspiel was probably the nicest guy i met all day. One funny anecdote, he mentioned that when he asked Bobby Curnow '"What [Curnow] thought qualified me to draw Godzilla?" that the response was "[Curnow] liked the way i draw Harvey Pekar." so i found that pretty amusing.

Herb Trimpe had a long line so i never made it over to him which was the only thing i didnt get to do that i wanted to do
