The character is, yes. But using the FCTW version would likely require some kind of royalty/likeness rights/licensing agreement with Toho since it's based off a version found exclusively in their film.

Seeing Frankenstein, Kong/Mechani-Kong in the comics would be amazing. It was weird seeing Gabara attacking a city in Defense Force as well.
"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

Hey everyone, wanted to pass along a new source to legally read a good chunk of IDW's Godzilla comics for free online. The outfit is called Graphite Comics, and they are a new entity which purports itself to be like Netflix and Spotify for comic books. It has a free, ad-supported version as well as a ad-free paid service. In addition to the website there are also apps for Apple and Android devices. I have the app on my phone (Android), but have not really dug into it. The web interface works very well.

Publishers on the platform include IDW, Boom, Dynamite, Papercutz, Legendary, Top Cow, and others. Obviously no Marvel, or DC, also no Dark Horse, Image, or Valiant. But there is a lot of content to read on here.

Anyway, as far as Godzilla, they currently have the following IDW series available:
https://www.graphitecomics.com/s/godzilla

Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters
Godzilla volume 2 (the second IDW ongoing)
Godzilla: Rulers of Earth
Godzilla: Cataclysm
Godzilla In Hell
Godzilla: Half Century War
Godzilla: Rage Against Time

In addition, Godzilla: Awakening from Legendary is also available on the site.

I don't know if this site will last or work better than other "all you care to read" comics sites (such as Scribd's comics initiative), but for now it looks like a good way to have some Goji comics to read!

In full disclosure I am not affiliated with Graphite Comics in any capacity, just passing this along for whatever it is worth.

So why is Gigan nicknamed Savini in Rulers Of Earth?

Like I understand the Tom Savini nod but why?

Basically what I took from that, was that Gigan, in his upgraded FINAL WARS Version One form. While still be recognizable as Gigan. As I thought when I first saw the sketches of FW Gigan, Was slimmer than Classic Gigan. Sporting sharper blades, and harpoons to boot. The cyborg now had an appearance similar to a serial killer, slasher. And seeing the make-up master Tom Savini resume including such slasher classics such as the original FRIDAY THE 13TH, F13:THE FINAL CHAPTER,THE PROWLER, and THE BURNING I could see why guys in the kaiju fighting unit would think with his new look, he would be considered, a new, individual entity.

Because the artists are dorky fanboys. I don’t mean that in a negative way cause I’m one myself.

I know Jeff Zornow is super into Slasher films.

But it would depend what issue and who the writer is.

I just thought of another thing that IDW could do if they wanted to (and if Toho allowed them to): release Godzilla: The IDW Era Part 2 and finish their history of their comic book run on Godzilla.

I don't think that IDW will be making any new Godzilla comics anytime soon. The company is going through some money troubles right now.

For any topic, not just this one, if there was something new, you would've seen a lot more posts before your own.

I hope if IDW does future Godzilla comics they go the graphic novel route like Legendary does with their Godzilla brand. It’s nice just getting a complete story in one shot for $10, $15 or $20.

So since the studio is under financial trouble, they go down someone else is bound to take the Godzilla property for American comics right? I don't want that to happen but y'know: hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

Boom Studio might pick up the license if that happens.

IDW going under would be very sad. I absolutely loved their takes on Godzilla, and I think the run in it's entirety showed some of the best the franchise has to offer. It's a shame though as it definitely got better as it went on.

However, if the licences changed, there's the benefit in that there's new material to work with, such as Shin, AnimeGoji designs, and still a good chunk of monsters and other things that could be used.

How big is the IDW Godzillas (Rulers Of Earth, Half-Cenertry War, Ongoing)?

B/c I know that the Rage Across Time Godzilla (if we are being realistic and if Godzilla was able to tear down MT Olympus with an orange hydra) is around 100-300 meters (my est.)

Slight derail but my favorite of the bunch is gangsters and goliaths. If we get a world of Godzilla I’d like to see it do things like this.
