Great news! Even the only one of the IDW comics I really loved was The Half-Century War, comics are the perfect medium to get experimental with Godzilla and that's what I want to see with the franchise right now. I hope we get a good ongoing.
why did i have to be the chosen one?

More than two years after publishing their last Godzilla comic IDW Publishing has signed a new licensing deal with Toho.

Oh hey holy poop
Just this week I was thinking “you know, it sucks how the IDW Godzilla comics just sort of petered out with Rage Across Time and Cataclysm, sort of wish we’d be getting more now that there’s new stuff coming out” and lo and behold

Really? Sweet! Long as it is in the vein of Rulers of the Earth/Century War/Time/Cataclysm and less like Kingdom of Monsters/the weak one with the portals.

It does not directly confirm anything new; just that they’re rereleasing the old comics in better and large volumes of trade. However, it does seem likely as why would they be going through the motions, if the intent wasn’t to make more. I wonder if we could get a Shin comic; that would be dope.

True, they've just confirmed that new trades are coming. Nothing about an new ongoing or mini series.

I wouldn't get your hopes up, IDW's comic arm is been put up for sale.

Hmm, they would need to sign a new license agreement with Toho to release what they already did?
"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

Is Godzilla Rage Across Time any good? I was curious to check it out but haven't had a chance to read it yet.

For reference, I enjoyed Rulers of Earth for its artwork, fast pace, and "Saturday Morning Cartoon" type of feel, I liked Godzilla in Hell for its imagery and weirdness, I enjoyed Godzilla Cataclysm for its premise though I felt it could have been better, and of course Half Century War is great.

How does it measure up to those?

Rage Across Time issues 1,2,3, and 5 are amazing, but they each have a different level of focus on the monsters, and different levels of writing. Issue 4 is boring and doesn’t really compare to the others. If you could still get a trade that would be awesome.

Oh, good! I just wanted to make sure that they didn't push back or otherwise change the dates of release for both of them.

Any updates or news from IDW? I`d assume maybe we`d finally get another series but I suppose not now.

I just want them to do at least one more story in the main storyline and finally put Ganimes and Minilla (the 2004 version) into it, thus finishing the Toho major monster roster.

And would it hurt them to finally have Minilla not only hatch from an egg, but age normally from infant to adult? Would it be asking too much if they could just do that?

Toho shot down the Minya aging story line I believe in ROE.

Eh? There's many more monsters that haven't been used in IDW other than Minya and Ganimes.

Many of which we don`t really know if they own or have the licensing for as well.

Monsters like:
Gabara
Dogora
Frankenstien (he is public domain isn`t he?)
Desghidorah
Daghara (who has now technically crossed over on screen to the Godzilla franchise)


Plus there were many monsters that were underutilized to the point that seeing them again wouldn`t be annoying;
IE; Orga, Moguera, Megalon, Gorosaurus etc...

That`s before we get into stuff that might be impossible to get or extra deals like Shin or the Mutos.

That`s before we get into the idea of original monsters and stuff. There`s plenty of ideas and things IDW could do if they wanted to continue the series.
