I have all twenty four issues for they were cheap and plentiful in the late eighties.

Its a true americanized attempt at Godzilla and he doesn't have laser eyebeams. In this series an atomic bomb melts an iceberg that just so happens to house Godzilla and he sets on a rampage in Seattle. He battles more than one monster at a time but they are all Marvel's creations (Toho banks on each monster seperately I guess). Godzilla is like a powerhouse of destruction and SHEILD agents and scientists figure ways to rid of him but new threats arises and Godzilla, just being the alpha-kaiju, battles the adversaries alongside the humans but then destroys more cities. It pretty cool read and detatched from the Toho world. No Jet Jaguar but Godzilla is assisted by Red Ronin, a samurai type of jaeger controlled by a japanese scientist that only wants to save Godzilla and keep him away from the humans but the mighty G's power proved that Godzilla is a loner and thats how it ends. Also there are issues where they shrink Godzilla to 6 inches and he battles sewer rats claiming king. But he starts to grow and he's running around New York lol. Its dope, don't pass it.

Is there any possible change that IDW could reissue the Marvel and Dark Horse comics in full-color? They did with the Marvel and Dreamwave Transformer comics.

I don't think so. As far as I'm aware, the Marvel Transformers didn't include BIG crossovers with the Avengers or Fantastic Four, plus cameos by Spiderman or Nick Fury. These are all high-profile characters, even moreso following the success of the Marvel films and Spiderman franchise. It seems like a daunting (and EXPENSIVE) task to get the rights...

You nailed it Pkmatrix.

While it's a possibility (a very remote one) for the Dark Horse books, there most likely will not be a reprint of the Marvel book. That is due to the fact that so many of Marvel's characters appeared in it, and it's simply a matter of needing to license all of those characters.

Special permission was given to us to finally reprint Transformers #3 (guest-starring Spider-Man) as well as Circuit Breaker. If you look back at early IDW reprints of those books, you'll notice that they're, um... different. The series a few years ago with Transformers/Avengers was collected in the Transformers: The IDW Collection Volume 4. Marvel was Marvel then, now they're owned by Disney and had a huge movie, too. I doubt we'll see that book reprinted because of that.

Well shucks, that makes sense then. What the the chances of Marvel releasing a full color edition then? Since the Essentials is now OOP.

I really enjoyed the Run Godzilla had in Marvel (MegaMonster, Devil Dinosaur, Red Ronin) BW or not this was a collection I bought as soon as I saw it. I enjoyed the Dark Horse run as well but the Marvel for me was just plain fun. I really think Rulers of the Earth are bringing that fun Factor so many Godzilla Comics have been lacking.

Looking back on the Godzilla vs. the Mega-Monsters storyline in issues #12-14, I've got one major issue about it (besides the terrible artwork in the third part): it was two monsters against three! In the first part, the Betan commander said that, even though he couldn't kill the Mega-Monsters, the Beta-Beast was their most powerful war-monster. Wouldn't it have made sense for Godzilla not to have killed him, but instead have both of them sent back to Earth to team up with Red Ronin, so the odds would be even on both sides? Or maybe after Godzilla killed him, the Beta-Beast could have been revived and sent down later in the fight, with the same results? Any thoughts on this?

I... don't see that anywhere?

Either way, the mods may have trouble with the recommended anatomical rearrangement more than they would the invocation is politics.

2016 was the Kobyashi Maru, folks. Let's just accept that our election ballots reflected the Darkest Possible Timeline, and that everyone who voted as they did was making the best of a bad situation no matter who they voted for- and try to heal (and survive) until the next (hopefully-better) election.

Getting back on topic it turns out this series was cancelled due to Toho wanting Marvel to charge more for the comics then Marvel thought was a fair price and thus ended it. Toho drops that ball again!

Oh, is that what it was? I always thought that one of the reasons was because Marvel had said in issue #1 that they would use their own characters sparingly in the comic and when they did that whole "Godzilla vs. the Fantastic Four and the Avengers" thing in the end, they had overstepped their bounds and Toho called them out on it. It seems that I was wrong. I did know, however, that it was Toho, not Marvel, that pulled the plug. That's too bad, because if they hadn't, the fans might have gotten that Godzilla vs. the Hulk fight that they were begging for in the letters page.

The Marvel comics are a lot of fun and in some areas outmatch Dark Horse and IDW. There's a ton of variety packed into those 20 something issues and the stories bleed into each other quite well.

I always liked the Marvel Godzilla series, just as a goofy experiment if nothing else. I mean its Godzilla in 70s Marvel. When I read it, I got pretty much what I expected out of it.

I mean where else can I see Godzilla shrunk down and running around in a trenchcoat before getting into a fist fight with The Thing?

The Marvel comics are actually great, except for the fact that a majority of the monsters have really bad designs. And then there’s the issue a lot of the monsters are just stand ins.

I always thought it was great how the series ends on a high note.
Then, everything changed when the Giant Condor became the Giant Eagle.
