Between Godzilla and Mothra? That wasn't a duel, that was more of a hit and everyone goes back to their business. For something to be a duel, both sides need to be fighting and the fight has to last for a couple of pages.
I read my friend's copy, a pretty good story I have to admit. Still shocked to see King Ghidorah on Monster Island though. The art was good, the pacing was a bit overly fast. Which is to be expected since its a mini series of just five comics. But its story is straight forward and that brushes off the pacing. The main character, though done before, offers a interesting atmosphere. Especially when he decides to use Mothra in order to clear his name. A semi dark anti-hero who's nicely well played. The small conflict between Godzilla and Mothra wasn't anything impressive or all that good. It was okay-ish, more of a teaser, but nothing satisfying.
But overall, it crushes KOM Issue 1 pretty badly. But, surprisingly. I can't get into this mini series for some reason. Its good all around, but I don't find it interesting to me. There's nothing that really catches my interest, there's nothing that has me wanting to read the next issue.
Detective Sato, I feel sorry for him. He's going through so much shit and is trying desperately to clear his name. He's willing to do anything to reach his goals. But for the life of me, I just don't care about him, nor do I care about the situation he's in. Its a great start of the mini series, blows KOM 1 out of the water. But I'm not going to follow it. It just doesn't catch my interest, and I can't find anything that makes me want to stick around. Everyone else, please do enjoy the mini series.
