I'd have to say that Alberto Ponticelli's
artwork is far more faithful at its majority to Godzilla himself. More so toward the Heisei-double-rowed teeth version that embodies the majority of the Godzilla's features.
While on the flip side Phil Hester
Kingdom of Monsters art is so all over the place from one panel to the next. Sometimes it's Final Wars, 1954, 1985, etc. Plus the lack of the scales give him too much of a smooth lizard
look rather than the rubbery, "scaleful" G-Suit we all have grown up knowing.

I would like to agree but Dark Horse
has not been up to par recently with it's current comics on the market. IDW
seems to have a better sense of what their customers want for their licensed products.
So far though, Arthur Adams
has had the best artwork for any stateside Godzilla comic to date. He simply set the bar to high for others to follow, lol! For stand alone art Bob Eggleton
has been the best for my tastes.
However, if he were able to dole artwork faster
, I'd nominate Matt Frank
to accept a position as a comic book artist! It probably wouldn't pay enough for him, but man, Matt's stand alone artwork is just so smooth and seemingly accurate that he accents whatever the monster in question has to offer. I mean, he's been around for a long time, at least since '03 during artwork for Ken Lewis's Giant Monster Rampage
