Today, Godzilla has returned in American theaters after a long absence (his last major theatrical run was Godzilla: 2000, unless you count the limited release Godzilla: Final Wars got in 2004). Those hungering for even more Godzilla need only wait until August when IDW releases a new five-issue mini-series Godzilla: Cataclysm. The series will be written by gentically engineered super-writer Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun) and Dave Wachter (Night of 1,000 Wolves). Bunn had this to say about the mini via the official press release:
“I've wanted to write a Godzilla story for as long as I can remember,” said Bunn, “before I even started Kindergarten, I drew a book titled ATTACK OF THE MONSTERS, which featured Godzilla, along with other monsters, terrorizing the world. The story started with Godzilla erupting from an iceberg and ended when the military dropped a massive sword on his head. I like to think that my storytelling sensibilities have matured since those days, but the desire to write a Godzilla story has remained with me.”
Here's the cover to the first issue:
Currently, fans of Godzilla can find character in the IDW ongoing, Godzilla: Rulers of the Earth. For those who haven't read it: Besides Godzilla, it has kaiju who haven't had any serious appearances since 1970s, including Jet Jaguar, whose entire issue is called "PUNCH PUNCH PUNCH". Here's three pages from #6 to tease you with:
It's by Chris Mowry and art by Matt Frank. Now go buy it, and buy Bunn's Cataclysm in August. BUY IT! I COMMAND YOU!!
