I see now that the circumstances of one’s birth is irrelevant. It is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.

It seems like a lot of the collected trades of the comics are going out of print. Get them now while you can!

I wish there was an omnibus of IDW's entire run. I would buy that in a heartbeat.
"Monsters are tragic beings. They are born too tall, too strong, too heavy. They are not evil by choice. That is their tragedy. They do not attack people because they want to, but because of their size and strength, mankind has no other choice but to defend himself. After several stories such as this, people end up having a kind of affection for the monsters. They end up caring about them." - Ishiro Honda

This one? Not really, I've found people selling it for around 2-3 dollars.

Woof. That'd be a biiiig book.
I was just thinking that the only thing missing right about now was a giant crocodile...

Here's an idea if they ever want to renew their license and get one for Peter, Paul, and Mary cartoons since there were a couple about Puff the Magic Dragon. They could do a Godzilla versus Puff the Magic Dragon battle to the death where Godzilla wins and proves the lyrics about the lifespan of dragons wrong.

Let's ignore that idiotic statement above and instead turn our attention to the likely cause of IDW not having any Godzilla comics in recent months:

https://www.bleedingcool.com/2017/06/26 ... 0-million/

Knowing Toho, it was probably just too much to keep the license. Heaven knows they've already got their hands full with Hasbro properties, TMNT, Star Trek and others.

Actually, there were three Puff cartoon TV specials: Puff the Magic Dragon (1978), Puff the Magic Dragon in the Land of the Living Lies (1979) and Puff and the Incredible Mr. Nobody (1982). Burgess Meredith was the voice of Puff in all three of them.

Maybe someone in the know can clue me in - I really enjoyed the first several volumes of Godzilla: Rulers of Earth, and wanted to get the remainder my library didn't have. I was considering purchasing them in graphic novel form with the 'Complete Godzilla Rulers of Earth' omnibuses. Right now, omnibus #2 is showing up as unavailable on all sites. Was it released and is now rare? Never released? Cancelled? Yet-to-be-released? Anyone know? (This may well be well-known lore within the comics community here, I'm just a neophyte in that regard.)

Cancelled essentially. IDW is slowly phasing all it's Godzilla collections out of print. Rage Across Time got a very limited release

Dang it. Why do I always pick the wrong collections to become a fan of?

Thank you!

The regular volume TPBs are still available for fair prices. If you have Complete ROE Volume 1, you'd wanna get ROE Volumes 4-6.

Out of print, huh? Guess that means my IDW comics might be worth some dough some day?

Not really considering the Marvel and Dark Horse Godzilla comics haven't been worth much since they went out of print

I mean these stories are available digitally as well and a number of them weren't good so it really goes to how much the market values Godzilla. Comics market won't care too much for these.

Kinda miffed we ended with Oblivion. I mean Rage across Time would have been a better send off. Not Kingdom's somehow lesser sibling.

We ended on Rage Against Time, and ending wasn't based on critical reception, rather the rights ran out I believe.
