SDF, & Misc Appearances:
comic picks up where #7 left off, with the confrontation
between Godzilla and the Red Ronin mecha, easily the
most memorable of Godzilla's original adversaries
from Marvel Comics run on the character. Piloted by
Robert Takiguchi, a person who garnished a level of
affection for Godzilla, Red Ronin must reluctantly
battle the King of the Monsters in order to keep him
from detonating a nuclear stock pile of missiles.
SHIELD, located in the Behemoth, briefly get involved
before Red Ronin knocks them away and manages to drag
Godzilla away from the missiles using its tow cables.
After thwarting another strike from SHIELD, Godzilla
and Red Ronin part on relatively mild terms.
In terms of the art in this issue, Herb Trimpe and
Fred Kida do a decent job. Nothing too remarkable
or really note worthy, and the same could be said
for Phil Rachelson's coloring on the issue. However,
the aspect of this comic that does deserve praise
is the extraordinary cover art by Ernie Chan, which
is arguably the best cover from the entire Marvel
Comics run (and was a wise choice to be showcased
on the back of the Essential
Godzilla King of the Monsters book).
