Oh my God, it's Matt Frank! How are you, Mr. Frank? Have you been doing art on your spare time or is IDW's license on Godzilla is done, so now you're at different paths?

Not according to the last post he took the time to make, so instead of going onto the Facebook page and trying to figure out if I can give it a like, I'll just say I like the comics that came out here.

I met the girl that I'm making friends with at work who's gonna put her voice online for a YouTube Godzilla crossover video. I won't say what it crosses over with because I got a board warning about posting about non Toho creations, but I did see Rodan and Ghidorah and heard the Godzilla march song being sung in a foreign language as I was watching it.
Take care and God bless

You won't get a board warning for that :P

You;ll just get a quote from a Forum Moderator telling you to not post an off-topic self-plug post in the IDW Comic section. ;)

Looks like IDW is releasing some more comics next year.

Kingdom of Monsters is getting a complete release
https://www.bullmoose.com/p/28603973/er ... f-monsters

Rulers of the Earth Volume Two is finally coming!

"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 means that the main IDW Godzilla story line will be available in four volumes now:

*Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters
*Godzilla: History's Greatest Monster
*Godzilla: Complete Rulers of Earth Volume 1
*Godzilla: Complete Rulers of Earth Volume 2.

Much more convenient than the previous multiple volumes, if you ask me.

Not sure, surprised Matt Frank is not aware. I’d be incredibly excited if so and he was back. IDW is having it a bit rough lately,

I recently just bought all three volumes of Kingdom of Monsters and all six volumes of Rulers of Earth for around $100 from my local comic book shop and eBay. Oh, my poor wallet!!! I didn't get Godzilla: Complete Rulers of Earth Vol 1 because I can only find it on Amazon in acceptable condition for $3,214.59!!! Even though I just bought the single volumes, I might still buy the two new trades. Then I will have every single trade except for Godzilla: Complete Rulers of Earth Vol 1.

Volume Five of Rulers is ungodly expensive. At least maybe this will drive that price down so those that only need that volume can get it.

Does anyone have a contact at IDW?

Yeah that’s the only reason why I don’t have ROE volume 5+6.

I know, it’s just a mystery why this particular volume is so expensive. Limited run or something?

All it takes is one jagoff to list it for an obnoxious price and one idiot to fall for it. Then a chain reaction eventually forms of people believing they can get away with upping it by $5 until you finally get sellers listing it for hundreds of dollars with nobody buying.

The fact that it’s selling for 3000$ is really dumb, and just because something is listed doesn’t mean a single person is going to buy it. There’s a gigantic difference between what someone lists online and what the actual price is.

Anyways, I THINK, correct me if I’m wrong, the reason why vol 5 might be hard to acquire is because when the volume was released IDW had a problem with their printers. Volume 5’s first print was delayed and the paper was noticeably less quality (still not bad btw, I’m not knocking it), then the previous releases.

It's not selling for $3000. The only listing at that price is from a money laundering account on Amazon. It's actual selling price (according to sold eBay listings) is around $90.

Yes, they’ve got it back!!

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

I've never read IDW comics, but I get the gist of them, so I'm super glad they've got the license back
