They've already said a million times that this has no similarities to KOM except monsters have appeared.
So what? That doesn't matter, because irregardless of having no similarities or not, it is still connected to the same storyline, events, and time line of the awful KOM story arc. No matter how different it is, it will always be tied to KOM,and its god-awful origins will always be there consciously or subconsciously in the background (i.e 1. the terribly re-written origin for Godzilla, 2. KG has already appeared in his p*ssified GMK form and as a result, this most likely eliminates any chance we will see the true evil space demon KG in this series, and 3. even if they're never mentioned again, the likes of President Obama and Lady Gaga/Jersey Shore will always exist in this time line like a brown sh*t stain that won't go away I could go on and on...these are just but a few examples). Very unwise move on IDW's part as they should have just started fresh and cut all ties to KOM...instead, KOM will always be there like a cloud over the new title's head. To make matters even more problematic, we are now suppose to accept the premise that mythical kaiju beasts, which the armies/militaries of whole countries cannot stop, can now suddenly be subdued by mere bounty hunters.....sorry, but even for a Godzilla comic, that's *really* stretching it when it comes to suspending disbelief. We shall see though...
I can only hope that the new comic will be up to your standards, ebirahsmeg - I've read the first issue and I enjoyed it quite a bit. All I can encourage is for you to give it a chance.
Hey, as I've said Frank, I will give it a chance. But after KOM, please understand that I and many fans are not giving any more free passes and will not rush out to buy this title until it proves it's worth the investment. "Fool me once, shame on you, but fool me twice...", well, you know how that old saying goes. I love both your and Zornow's work on these covers....but the bottom line is that you two aren't working on what's between the covers, and that's where the main problems have been with the main series. What's funny is that some fans have remarked that my "standards are too high"...puhlease. At this point, I would be happy if the main series was *on par* with the old Dark Horse G series...I wouldn't exactly consider that "unrealistically high expectations."
IDW has done a great job with their mini-series (I have said all along that G: Legends or stories similar to G&G should be the main series instead of KOM and Godzilla), but unfortunately, they have almost always made wrong choices at every turn when it comes to their main series. IDW screwed up big time with KOM, and they deserve all the scrutiny they get from here on out until they prove otherwise (and I sincerely hope they prove me wrong...nothing would make me happier ).
