Awesome! I loved the first run of IDW comics, excited to see what they come out with next! I would love to get another series as good as Half Century War. The new series looks like it could be fun.

Best kaiju game ever. Like, seriously, awesome to play and full of cool little nods to the films that make it up. Ten out of ten. Worth waiting for.

It shouldn't since i don't remember either side saying it would effect either's run.

I'm very pleased to hear the news! I was a big fan of IDW's Godzilla run; had its ups and downs but a very strong run overall. Favorite series were Legends, Gangsters & Goliaths, ROE, and of course, Half-Century War. I met Matt Frank and Jeff Zornow a couple of times; I hope they're attached to some of these new projects in some capacity! Very passionate fans. Maybe they can get James Stokoe back, too.

I certainly don't mind a series aimed at a younger audience - it's good to branch out and get new fans! - but I do hope they have more planned outside of that.

Also, I made up a little "appearance scorecard" a few years back - a visual list of every kaiju as they appear in every IDW comic series. If anyone's interested I can post it here, it's on a flash drive somewhere.

You bet I'd like to see it! I wrote down a similar list and I'd love to compare it to yours.

Apologies for the delay, I've been very busy lately but I finally found it. However, I want to edit a few things on it so I'll post it later this week. I'll make a separate thread for it so it doesn't eventually get lost in the shuffle; put a lot of effort into it way back when.

Any reason why? GaG has a unique story, and RoE has a lot of fun monster action! Worth the read!

Opps, that was a typo. I meant to say I was indeed going to "tackle" those. Although since I am already here I'll mention that Legends' different artists and focuses on different kaiju really gives some needed variety into the series. A very welcome breathe of fresh air. Half Century war was also nice even it is more conventional, but still has great cameos and references so nothing is dull. I am particularly fond of Deverich. That's making fun of the Godzilla from 98 right? It made me chuckle.

Good find. Looking it up now, there's also the logo -

Looks like a futurey kind of setting, maybe? Would certainly be neat if so.

Looks great! Love Dan Schoening's art style, seeing Godzilla adapted in it is a huge plus.

How absolutely lovely. Great art style, and the destruction indicates that while it'll be more kid friendly it won't be a complete wash. I'm looking forward to monthly reviews on these things. If it came out sooner I could use it in my "Teaching Young Adult Literature Class". Shame.

DIg the art style. Cartoony and suitable for young'uns, but at the same time looks like a natural fit for Godzilla!

When I was a little kid the Rulers of the Earth art style was badass, this seems like a step down.

But I was always of the mind that little ones deserve the same quality as the older audience both visually and thematically, especially for something as expansive and generational as Godzilla. I'll keep my mind open to it though.

Even though I’m on board with Schoening's art style, that’s a good point. Stuff like Godzilla: The Series, and the Heisei/Millennium films were still directed to kids too (the GMK/Hamtaro doubleheader comes to mind). Plus lots of kids were excited for KOTM.

I dunno, I’m not really looking at it as a “simpler art style for kids”, just IDW utilizing one of their existing artists. Dan’s done work for Ghostbusters and TMNT and I would exactly call those kid-oriented series.

The synopsis reminds me of the Random House novels, nice!

https://www.scifijapan.com/articles/20 ... pril-2021/
Writer: Erik Burnham
Artist: Dan Schoening
Colorist: Luis Antonio Delgado
Cover A: Dan Schoening
Cover B: Photo Cover by Vic Hollins

Tentative In-Store Date: April 2021
Pages: 36
Cover Price: $4.99

Godzilla roars back into comics with a giant-sized first issue! Extra story and extra content mark the King of Monsters’ triumphant return!

“Rise Up!” Part 1: When a coldly single-minded businessman uses an untested element to create clean energy for a profit, he inadvertently awakens the beast from the deep — Godzilla! Sensing the harm the new energy poses to the planet, Godzilla attacks the heart of the problem — humankind! It will be up to three intrepid middle-school students — with a little magic help from Infant Island — to show Godzilla that not all humans are bad… and that there is still hope for Planet Earth.

Reuniting the blockbuster creative team of writer Erik Burnham, artist Dan Schoening, and colorist Luis Antonio Delgado (Ghostbusters), Godzilla: Monsters & Protectors promises to romp and stomp fans — old and new — of the greatest kaiju ever like never before!

That artwork isn't working for me. I've seen Schoening's work before and it's amazing stuff, but here it's not working for me. If he was aloud to go all out on it, then it would be a hundred times better.
