For whatever reason we’re doing the Prize Fight a week earlier than usual. That’s fine. Next weekend is ComiCONN and I have to get stuff done before that, even with a short workweek at the (technically) paying job. Besides, the theme for the Prize Fight involved fighting bugs and coming off of last night’s Rifftrax Live of Starship Troopers that seems appropriate. I got into the Prize Fight with a little help from Anguirus. Well, for this one I’m bringing the Big G into the ring. As for bugs…
This one big enough for you?
“Mosquito” Prize Fight!
The Battlefield: Godzilla #12 (Marvel Comics Group; July, 1979) “Beta-Beast”
The Promoters: Doug Moench (writer), Herb Trimpe (artist), Fred Kida (inker), Mary Titus (colorist), and B. Patterson (letterer)
Aliens kidnap Godzilla but for once it isn’t part of a plan to conquer us but save themselves. That means the big guy’s going up against the Beta-Beast. We already met him, so let’s kick his butt.
That weird glow around Godzilla? I think that allows him to breathe. It’s never really stated as far a quick skin could tell.
The alien bug-thing manages to get a few shots off on Godzilla but that never lasts long.
Thus proving again that no matter what planet he’s on, no monster can defeat Godzilla! Unlessshe’sprotectingheryoung.
