Godzilla's On the Highroad to Hell in New IDW mini-series 'Godzilla in Hell'

This shouldn't be at all expected when the King of Monsters has his tail strikes down a hospital, destroy innocent WW II veteran businessmen, and drop a building on the helpless crew of the Super X.

Godzilla is going to HELL. Hell might be in for some trouble.

IDW announced today of Godzilla in Hell, a new five issue mini-series starring the King of the Monsters as he goes through the various levels, annhilating anything that come's his way. Here's the press release:

In over six decades of battles and triumphs, Godzilla has never faced a challenge as great as what’s coming his way this summer, when he goes to Hell courtesy of IDW Publishing.

In Godzilla in Hell, a five-issue miniseries launching in July, Godzilla will storm through the gates of Hell itself, proving that the towering behemoth is King of the Monsters both above and below!

With no warning and no sign of salvation, Godzilla is plummeted to the deepest, darkest bowels of the infernal kingdom. The mystery of what led to Godzilla’s damnation, and what he will face, will take readers on a dark and twisted journey unlike any Godzilla story before.

A rotating creative team will each take Godzilla through a new and more dangerous layer of Hell, beginning with none other than writer and artist James Stokoe, who is returning to the character for the first time since his haunting stunner of a miniseries Godzilla: The Half Century War.

“Drawing Godzilla must be my comfort food because it feels really great to come back and work on pages with IDW again,” said Stokoe, writer and artist on Issue 1. “Also, the list of amazing creators they’ve tapped for this series beyond my issue feels equally great as a fan, especially with the theme everyone gets to play with. You can’t get much bigger than Godzilla versus Hell!“

Successive issues in this five-part series will feature talents familiar to the Godzilla franchise, including the multi-talented writer/artists Bob Eggleton and Dave Wachter; Wachter most recently wrapped up the apocalyptic take on Godzilla in Godzilla: Cataclysm.

New to the world of Godzilla will be writers Ulises Farinas and Erick Freitas, together on Issue #3, and Brandon Seifert, tackling Issue #4; artists will be announced for these issues at a later time.

“I’m very proud with the level of quality we’ve brought to all of our Godzilla mini-series,” said editor Bobby Curnow. “Godzilla in Hell will prove no exception. It’s been incredibly fun seeing the creator’s imagination stretch to fully utilize this otherworldly premise.”

This explosive new series will join a number of other major debuts in July as part of the “Five Featured Firsts” program, which launches a brand new title each and every week in July. Additionally, the debut issue will feature an EC Comics homage variant cover by Godzilla: Rulers of Earth artist Jeff Zornow as part of “EC Cover Month.”

Hell's gonna regret this ain't it? Instead of running out of room in Hell cliché, they'll be running the hell out of Hell from Godzilla.
