The Pull List (12/17/13): Godzilla, King of Monsters (and monster comics)

by

comment

With the recent arrival of the Godzilla trailer, which depicts the return of cinema's monster monarch, some may find it hard to wait for their Kaiju fix. Thankfully, the titular beast is still active in the comic world. Even this week, IDW is publishing not only a new issue of its literal blockbuster, Godzilla: Rulers of Earth, it's releasing the first trade paperback for the series.

The series began in the summer, and the narrative offers several more gigantic creatures from Godzilla lore to battle. It's IDW's third ongoing series for the monster, and the creature has had a long comic history, like the nostalgia-inducing, 1977 series from Marvel. Even Dark Horse took a stab at him (or her? Which one is it, fellow nerds?).

For this series, writer Chris Mowry and artist Matt Frank are the principal creators, both having experience within the franchise. So go get your fix, if monsters are your thing, and if you end up digging, don't forget to check out the many issues and series that came before it. You'd be surprised who turns up.
