i *think* the upper bubble has an insect leg and wings coming out of it. The lower bubble looks to be covering something very Rodan-y

It does look like a Rodan wing.
Maybe we will get a sequel with Moansta Island and some answers.

5 More Movies That Could Use Comic Book 'Missing Chapters'
Following the lead of 'Interstellar,' some more films from this year that would benefit from comic book expansions

Like most people who enjoyed Godzilla, I found myself wishing that we could have had much more of Bryan Cranston’s Joe Brody. The 15-year gap between Brody losing his wife at the Janjira Nuclear Plant and his detainment in the quarantine zone is literally just there, waiting to be filled in with stories of thwarted investigations, paranoia and the tragedy of a man trying (and failing) to find meaning in disaster. Admittedly, no matter how good the comic book version of that story could be, chances are the audience would still find themselves missing Cranston’s performance, but that's no excuse for leaving the story untold. It's not unfamiliar ground, either; Godzilla screenwriter Max Borenstein already co-wrote a prequel comic featuring Ken Wantanabe's character Dr. Serizawa.

Who should draw it? It sounds like an uncertain compliment, admittedly, but few artists can make misery as beautiful as Batman and X-Men veteran Frazer Irving, whose work is currently on display in Annihilator with Grant Morrison.

I have a great idea for “Godzilla!” I have the best “Godzilla” idea, but no one has ever asked me it.

MTV: Hey, I’ll ask you right now.

Morrison:
No, I’m not telling you my “Godzilla” idea! I want to use it. I’d love to tell you, honestly, but… No. [Laughs] One day, maybe, you’ll see my “Godzilla” idea.

Midtown Comics has 40% off Awakening. (both hardcover and paperback).. I wish i had paid $7.79 for this instead of $17 for this comic

Well I finally got around to this. I had no idea there was a cheaper paperback so that was good. If you read the Pacific Rim prequel comic, you know what to expect. A rushed story and constantly shifting art. Like Tales from Year Zero, Awakening really would have benefited from an IDW-style 5 issue miniseries. Things go by way too quickly. There's no time to cherish anything and the hardcover going for $20+ is ridiculous. I'm glad I paid less than half that.

Another nitpick I have is I don't know why Legendary feels the need to have a handful of artists handle these short movie comics. It'd make sense for an anthology (like Godzilla Legends) but for something like this it's so unnecessary. The art is stylized (which isn't a bad thing on its own) but it becomes chaotic and uneven when you go back and forth between artists. It makes the final result messy.
