When Godzilla senses humankind doing harm to the planet, the King of the Monsters attacks!

When a coldly single-minded businessman uses an untested element to create clean energy for a profit, he inadvertently awakens the beast from the deep! It will be up to three intrepid middle-school students, Cedric, Emily, and Anderson—with a little magic help from Infant Island—to show Godzilla that not all humans are bad…and that there is still hope for Planet Earth. 

Then, Godzilla has been missing for a year and Cedric desperately needs new content for his vlog. No sightings means no destruction, and that’s not a bad thing but his views are dropping and he’s facing competition and trolling from Karen Higa and cyberbully Dragon. But nothing brings rivals together like a common enemy. When the otherworldly Xiliens begin using psychic technology to probe every mind on Earth for knowledge of Godzilla, they awaken the three-headed dragon King Ghidorah instead! 

This graphic novel compilation collects Godzilla: Monsters and Protectors—Rise Up!, Godzilla: Monsters and Protectors—All Hail the King!, and Godzilla: Monsters & Protectors—Summer Smash by writer Erik Burnham and artist Dan Schoening.
Erik Burnham is a Minnesotan writer and artist that first broke into comics by way of the Nick Landime feature from Shooting Star Comics. This led first to other anthologies and then work for IDW Publishing, including his critically acclaimed work on the Ghostbusters line of comic books and, currently, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Erik’s been fortunate to work with many companies in the last few years, including Cryptozoic, Dynamite, IDW, Insight Editions, Marvel, and Panini on properties such as Godzilla, GI Joe, Ghostbusters, TMNT, Scarlet Spider, New Warriors, and Red Sonja—with more on the way (which is good news, because he loves his work). Erik still lives in Minnesota; any rumors about this being because he’s completely afraid of the 49 other states (and Canada) remain unverified at this time.
