COMMENTS

By: Anthony Romero

The second part of Shogakukan's two series set on Godzilla: Final Wars (2004). This book, like its predecessor, is devoted almost entirely to production shots from the 50th anniversary Godzilla film. The little text that is found in the book is often in relation to the images being shown. Like other Shogakukan releases in their "Movie" line, it's fairly short at only 16 pages, cited as 17 inside as they count the cover. The book was also made to be fairly durable, with each of the pages being around as thick as a sheet of cardboard.

In regards to the contents of the second book, it covers mostly what the first skipped over, showing pictures for: Godzilla, Minilla, Gigan, Mothra, Monster X, and Keizer Ghidorah. The Xilien are also present here, although only in two small production shots. The book is set up with about 8 two page layouts, each with numerous images spread across the two. The nice thing about the Shogakukan line, in regards to the two page layouts, is that the pages can be folded open all the way without causing any real damage to the book, making it perfect for scanning.

The book, along with the first in the set, retails for around $6, although naturally has gone up in price a bit since its initial release. If one is only interested in picking up one of the books in the set, they should probably be advised to get the first entry, Movie Godzilla: Final Wars 1, as it covers more monsters. As a slight bit of back story, this book was released later than the first due to an effort to keep Keizer Ghidorah a secret, as he is featured quite prominently in the publication.
