I was hoping they'd do something like this, like they did with Pacific Rim.

Alright! I'm a huge Godzilla fan who's really excited about the new movie (which is hopefully the REAL reboot we all want), and I'm happy they're writing a prequel. If it ends up being good, I'll definitely get it.

Unlike Pacific Rim though, Godzilla should kinda revolve around the monster.

@herokiller12344: Are you implying the Tales form Zero Year didn't? If this is going to be a prequel book then it's going to focus more on the humans and the military group MUTO or what ever. Not saying Godzilla won't be in it, just that the book will most likely contain more human then Godzilla.

Dang people must've gotten serious with this topic...so many deleted messages. Anyway I've never read tales from year zero whats that about.
