The Original Dark Horse Godzilla

Postby g2vd » Fri Jul 22, 2016 3:40 am

I was looking around Amazon and I suddenly remembered Dark Horse's original Godzilla Comic and I'm not talking about their On-going or 84 manga reprint. but the original one that had Godzilla reawakened by some Stone or something it had a bunch of original monsters and stuff I don't remember much of what I eead about it but I really want to have it.

Was it ever collected in a book?

This is the comic in particular.

And if I remember correctly there was a sequel, yes?

I have that comic! It's tucked away in a plastic sleeve in a box at home. ^_^ If I recall, it was reprinted in Dark Horse's Godzilla: Age of Monsters trade - I have that as well, I can check when I get home.

Dark Horse's main Godzilla comic, the one that ran 16 issues, is the sequel. Issue #0 has two of that comic's main characters return, recaps that comic's storyline in an extended flashback, and the whole first story arc (Issues #0 - #4, with Cybersaur and Bagorah) pretty much continues straight off from that original comic's plot.

It's in a collected trade, Godzilla age of monsters. There's two trades of the Godzilla Dark horse stuff, that and Godzilla last present future.

It's weird because the whole poop about the slab and the other monsters never really goes anywhere and it's a shame because that issue is awesome.
Then, everything changed when the Giant Condor became the Giant Eagle.

You are correct! Chronologically before that, there was the Godzilla Color Special, and then the issue #0 material, which itself is a reprint (with some changes) of material that was presented in Dark Horse Comics #s 10 and 11 shortly after the Color Special.

I know what you mean. I'd have loved to find out more about the other three disaster monsters-Soran the Thunderbird, Inagos the Locust King and Kamerus "the Sky Turtle" (as I call him). ( By the way, if anyone asks, Kamerus is seen twice in Godzilla, King of the Monsters Special #1 and is mentioned by name in (I think, but I'm not sure) Godzilla, King of the Monsters #0 (the color comic version, not the black and white book version in Godzilla: Age of Monsters (again, I'm not sure about this, either) ). Also, I read the TK review for this particular comic and saw two errors: Inagos is based on Mothra, not Kamacuras and Kamerus is based on Gamera, not Anguirus (as I thought he was after I saw his name mentioned (again, I think, but I'm not sure) in GKOTM #0).

Added in 22 hours 3 minutes 24 seconds:
I just thought of another character from the Dark Horse storyline that I'd have loved to find out more about-the female mad scientist (whose name I can't remember-can anyone help me here?) who appeared in GKTOM #15 and ADoDH #4. UPDATE: I just found out her name is Dr. Yamazaki.

Added in 8 hours 31 minutes :
Is someone going to please update the TK article on Godzilla, King of the Monsters Special #1 with the info I gave here? I'd hate to think I did this for nothing.

^ Email Anthony aka Arbok with said info
The Godzilla fandom tends to attract three types of people; ignorant kids, social deviants and drunks in their '20s.

Okay, I've told him. Now all I can do is wait. Thanks for the help!
