starkiller809's Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters #1 review

Review: Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters #1

Godzilla returns to comics with a bang. With Eric Powell and Tracy Marsh writing the series and Phil Hester penciling it, I think we are in for something good.



One of the best things about this comic book was seeing Godzilla in something again. I haven't seen Godzilla in anything for a good while. I really like this issue because it takes into account that people may be barley starting learning about Godzilla. I feel that they are starting a new with a fresh new start. Phil Hester draws Godzilla perfectly to me and I loved the pannels because they aren't just your rettangles and squares. They make them interesting and I really enjoyed it. This issue had some great art and I'm glad to see Godzilla as more of a villian instead of a monster that does a happy dance.. when he wins a battle.



I love Phil Hesters Godzilla, but his people could use a little detail (I acctually sometimes think that this gives the book feel diffrent and is sometimes quite enjoyable) . I think that his Godzilla makes up for this so it dosen't seem that bad.


THE VERDICT: 4.5/5 (Amazing)

I'm a huge fan of Godzilla, I have every movie of his and I really enjoyed reading him in a comic book because I love comics a lot. I'm really excited about what is going to happen in this series. I have seem the covers of issue to come and there are Rodian and Angirus so I'm happy about seeing some more monsters coming to the series. Anyone that cares about Godzilla shoud gets this. Anyone who likes reading a good comic should get this!

    Many comic book shops got variants with their own store being crushed on the cover, which I drew me to the comic. It's a great gimmick. However, inside the comic I found to be lacking. Nothing effectively happens in the issue, and there are no characters developed at all. Nuclear weaponry is used with no real consideration, and the comic effect of many different characters, at different times, saying "you have to be %$@#ing me" didn't seem funny to me in the slightest. Avoid this....

       Timing aside, the return of the King of Monsters to the world of sequential art is one that should be heralded.  Headed by a dynamite creative team, does Gojira make a strong first impression? The Folly of Man The story in this Godzilla adaptation is much the same as it is most every Godzilla iteration; the dreaded reptilian beast rises from the shores of Japan and proceeds to go on a rampage.  Although the military attempts to intervene, even their strongest attempts are brushed aside.  With...
