I know a lot of fans complained about the covers for KoM, so when the new ongoing happened we got a bunch of covers featuring Boxer.... personally I would prefer good art. I don't think anyone out there wants a poster of Boxer on their wall, especially over Zornow's Ghidorah cover with Mazer tanks (whether or not we got Mazer tanks or even that Ghidorah iteration)

While I really like Zornow's work on these covers, I'm not digging this particular one as much as most of his other covers. The layout is nice, however, Gigan's face and mouth look off and rather odd imo. The Gezora/Manda is definitely the better of the two...

Well, I'll probably be happy if they actually use these new monsters they're talking about. It seems to me that they said the same sh*t with the last ongoing, only to throw pretty much the same batch at us. I remember seeing a pic of The Gargantuas duking it out in a post related to that series, but I never saw it in the book.

I wanna see Varan and Manda and Orga and Frankenstein and those other guys trashing each other for a change.

Yes.

i could at least argue for the merits of KoM, the current ongoing is a mess of bad story telling, cliche characters and disastrous plotting. the final stretch is trying to make up for the first 3/4 by giving us non-stop monster on monster action, so maybe that's got to count for something... but at the same time they gave us a filler recap issue that ended on a poop joke, so yeh...

I'm kind of split; I hated the political garbage from KOM, but I've got to the point in the current that I just can't stand Boxer's character. At first, he seemed like this Bruce Willis/Schwarzenegger badass who just couldn't die, and I thought that was cool. But the further on it went, he just got dumber and dumber, constantly doing stupid sh*t that jeopardized the lives of his teammates. And his dialogue is annoying. Not the British part, but the stereotypical hardass hero; I've half expected him to start saying "Come with me if you want to live." by now.

I don't know. I liked the story of the soldier and the orphaned kid in KOM; that was touching. But the chemistry between the characters in the current series seems so choppy all the time. Everybody hates him one minute, then they're relying on him the next; key characters dying, you get the point. All I know is I've revisited KOM more than once since it ended, and I don't think I've gone back through this series at all yet.

I think the current ongoing is better than Kingdom of Monsters, but not by much. It starts off decent enough in the first few issues but the overall story (group of kaiju bounty hunters neutralize several Earth monsters, who are then trapped on Monster Island, just before an invasion of space monsters befalls the planet and we need the Earth monsters to defend us) is way too thinly stretched across 11 issues and counting. There is so much filler and action movie cliches it's ridiculous. While #10 and #11 have really delivered the goods in terms of a climactic third act, they should have happened months ago. The whole series could have been condensed down to five, six, maybe seven issues at the most, but they decided to make this one very basic story last for an entire year.

It's still better than Kingdom of Monsters, though, which was a sloppy mishmash of unfocused writing, bad art, unsubtle political commentary, and even more go-nowhere plotting.

Just pick up the trade paperbacks of The Half-Century War, Gangsters and Goliaths, and Legends. Those are the gems of IDW's run. The former two are succinct, well-written stories that are perfectly paced across five issues each and the latter is a collection of five one-off stories. I'm really looking forward to Rulers of Earth.

I think I like KOM just a smidge more than the ongoing.

I hate Boxer, and I think the comic is ugly. I think if at least one of those things were fixed I'd be more into what I'm reading. :/
