The Godzilla Comic & The Godzilla Comic Raids Again: Gigantis the Fire Comic-possible English-language versions?

Postby mikelcho » Wed Jul 05, 2017 7:43 pm

I've read the Wikipedia article "Godzilla (comics)" many times and saw that it mentioned two Japanese anthology comics named The Godzilla Comic (1990) and The Godzilla Comic Raids Again: Gigantis the Fire Comic (1991) that looked like they were right up my alley. My question is: do they come in only Japanese-language versions only, or are there English-language versions available in Japan for those people who live there and speak English but not Japanese? I guess English is considered the semi-official second language over there and just wondered if whoever published the two mangas would've done that to cater to those customers as well. I'm saying this because, if they do exist and since I'll probably never get to go to Japan anytime soon, I'd like to know how to get these two magazines in English-language versions for a reasonable price. Can anyone help me with this problem here?

Gigantis The Fire Comic was published about twenty-five years ago, and I've never run across an English translation. You'd have to look at websites like Mandrake and eBay to find a copy of the Japanese original.

I wish Viz Media would release these Godzilla manga in English. It would be so cool.

Doesn't MaserPatrol have some scans of those manga?

MaserPatrol did full translations of a few chapters from The Godzilla Comic:

I'm not sure if they tackled The Godzilla Comic Raids Again, but Wikizilla has a couple untranslated scans from it on its page for it: http://wikizilla.org/wiki/The_Godzilla_Comic_Raids_Again

I made a mistake here. Could someone please remove this post and change the title to what it is now in all the other posts that aren't mine? Thank you.
