Is Godzilla: Cataclysm Good?

Postby Dr. Professor » Sun Aug 19, 2018 6:49 pm

Inspired by the thread about Half Century War. I'd just like to know if Godzilla: Cataclysm is any good and if it's worth buying, since I've never seen anyone talk about it before. Even though it's been out for a long time, please don't spoil it for me, unless the general consensus is that it's not that good. Thanks.

I think it's worth having for the artwork alone, which is fantastic. The story itself isn't *bad*, but I think it could've used a bit more work. Overall, compared to Half-Century War it's a pretty quick read.

It's pretty good honestly, I love how they used each individual kaiju as a god for humanity. Goes by too fast though.

I love the premise for Cataclysm. Setting the monsters in a post apocalyptic world that they caused opens up all kinds of doors.

The overall series is good, but I felt like it was incomplete. It either needed to be extended by an issue or two to expand on its plotlines and character development, or it needed to be a one off issue, stripped down to its bare essentials to show off the broken world.

But its still an enjoyable read. And as per usual with the more recent IDW outings for Godzilla, the artwork is stellar.
