Godzilla: Kingdom Of Monsters: Volume 1 (2011)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
01.16.12

Godzilla: Kingdom Of Monsters: Volume 1 (2011) I had read comic issue #1 and stopped reading, thinking the best way to tackle this new series was to wait for the collected graphic novel Volume 1. I was right. It begins with The King of the Monsters emerging from the ocean off the coast of a small Japanese island. The airforce fires at it, to no avail, so the government sanctions a nuclear strike. This only makes Godzilla glow orange and gives him the ability to shoot fire out of his mouth. Soon, other monsters begin appearing around the world. In Mexico, it's Anguirus. In Russia, a young boy finds a large egg, which hatches into a baby Rodan. In France, two creepy psychic girl twins summon up Battra (the evil version of Mothra).

The book is both violent, with lots of death and destruction you'd expect from a giant monster rampage, coupled with a sense of humor. For example, a fisherman whose children were killed during Godzilla's first appearance arms himself like a suicide bomber and jumps--from a building--onto Godzilla's snout and explodes himself--and it's like a gnat bite to the big G. And members of a famous reality show get what's coming to them.

Volume 1 of this series is extremely entertaining, particularly for DaiKaiju fans. Highly recommended.
