IDW Publishing (April, 2013)“This Time He’s Fighting For His Life” WRITER: Duane Swierczynski ARTIST: Simon Gane COLORIST: Ronda Pattison SELECTED COVER ARTIST: Bob Eggleton LETTERER/CREATIVE CONSULTANT: Chris Mowry EDITOR: Bobby Curnow
With a little help from the damaged MechaGodzilla, the real Godzilla takes down Space Godzilla. As the last Godzilla standing, he has no time to celebrate when Monster X reveals his alternate form, Kaiser Ghidorah! Meanwhile, Angurius is back and teaming with Rodan to give Gigan what for. Back with the humans, an old friend returns and may have the final weapon to help stop this kaiju space invasion!
What they got right: The monster fights continue to be well done and the humans are not getting in the way. Kaiser Ghidorah looks amazing and seeing the other monsters get their time in the story was good as well. Also, the only character from Boxer’s original crew I like came back and we didn’t lose my other favorite in the process.
What they got wrong: Don’t give me a page when I almost feel sorry for Boxer. I’m too used to not liking the SOB.
Recommendation: You should already be buying this comic, people.
