IDW’s pulling up with a triple threat of kaiju action for us in the coming months!
First up is Godzilla Rivals: Biollante Vs. Destoroyah – the next installment in the Godzilla Rivals series of one-shots which pits Godzilla’s most dangerous allies and scariest nemeses again each other in a series of sense-shattering showdowns! In this issue, marvel as Biollante throws down with Destroyah!
Next is Godzilla: Here There Be Dragons #1 – the first issue in a five-part miniseries. It’s always cool seeing iconic characters mashed with past eras of history like in MARVEL 1602, Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, and last year’s Prey movie. Well this series takes place in the 1500’s! Before humanity had successfully traveled the entire globe, it was believed that monsters ruled the oceans just beyond the horizon. “Here there be dragons…” was written on maps to denote the areas people dared not go. That is, until Sir Francis Drake circumnavigated the seas, visiting foreign lands and collecting treasure. That’s what history tells us, at least, but history does not have the full tale. Monsters did lurk yonder, living on an island that still doesn’t appear on any map, and among them was the king of them all…Godzilla!
Finally we have Godzilla: Best of Rodan – the next installment of the Godzilla: Best of series of one-shots. It’s fight and flight in this collection of soaring Rodan stories by beloved Godzilla creators! Collects Godzilla: Legends #2, Godzilla: History’s Greatest Monster #4, Godzilla: Rulers of Earth #5, and more!
