This fresh Godzilla OGN proves that kaiju are for kids. Especially the ones who’d rather befriend beasts than fight them.

As an aspiring cartoonist, Zelda has always dreamed of attending an art summer camp, and this year she finally gets to go! But when she arrives to Make It Summer Camp, she’s horrified to see the easels and sketchboards have been replaced with dodgeball and calisthenics. The camp is under new, suspicious management that’s turned it into an extreme sports nightmare. 

Determined to salvage her summer, Zelda escapes to a secluded corner of the island. Here she can finally draw in peace. At least until she stumbles into a portal to a fantastic world!

Welcome to Monster Island, Zelda!

There she makes a connection with baby kaiju Minilla and discovers the beauty of these legendary creatures. However, all is not well on Monster Island. Great evils are stirring and if Zelda can’t protect their home, the kaiju will unleash their wrath on the world.
Rosie Knight is an Eisner-winning journalist and author. You can find her work at websites like Nerdist, IGN, Polygon, The Hollywood Reporter, Women Write About Comics, Esquire, Den of Geek, DC Comics, /Film, BuzzFeed, and Refinery29.

She co-hosts Crooked Media’s X-Ray Vision podcast, discussing pop culture from superhero movies to prestige television to the best fantasy novels and, of course, comics.

The Haunted High-Tops, Rosie’s debut young readers comic with Fran Bueno, is out now from Capstone. Her newest comic is Godzilla Rivals: Vs. Battra with Oliver Ono, which hit shelves in Summer 2022 from IDW.
