  • Let’s take care of the elephant in the room right away. I like GODZILLA 1998. Yes as a Godzilla fan I could make a minute by minute commentary with everything wrong with the film. Godzilla is too weak. Godzilla should breathe radioactive fire. Godzilla never runs from a fight. But what can I say? I was the target demographic for the film when it came out. I remember the ads, the young adult novel, my first Godzilla toy was a Trendmasters Godzilla 1998 figure. It’s a massive part of my childhood and its because of that movie that I was introduced to Godzilla proper. (more…)

  • Godzilla King of the Monsters is a unique item. Originally released on Wonderland Records in 1977 and re-released on CD in 1998 by Golden Drive Records, Godzilla King of the Monsters is an audio drama consisting of two stories. The cover of the 1998 CD copy that I have features the famous Herb Trimpe cover artwork from Marvel’s comic book Godzilla King of the Monsters issue #1. These stories are roughly thirteen minutes in length and clearly aimed at younger children. My CD copy also features a track called Godzilla Vs. Gomi (Monster Music Mix) which is a bizarre remix of dialog and sound effects from the stories set to a music track and I personally didn’t like it. (more…)

  • I’ve had the privilege of attending a few Comic Book, Horror, and Science Fiction conventions here in my local town of Dallas Texas. The month of May in 2017 saw the arrival of the new Famous Monsters Convention here named after the beloved fan magazine, Famous Monsters of Filmland.

For a first time convention Famous Monsters Convention Dallas hosted an impressive list of guests. Ricou Browning who played The Creature from the Black Lagoon in the original Universal classic films, Sara Karloff the daughter of Boris Karloff, and even Sean S. Cunningham the creator of Jason Voorhees and the Friday the 13th franchise. (more…)

  • Around this time last year I was very blessed to meet the awesome Akira Takarada while visiting Dallas Comic Con a local comic book convention, and cover that event for Toho Kingdom by writing an article detailing the convention for my fellow Godzilla fans. In concluding that article I wrote that I hopped to see them follow up their success with Mr. Takarada by adding more Godzilla or Kaiju related guests. My expectations were blown away when this year’s convention, (renamed to Fan Expo Dallas 2015) added the most impressive lineup of Godzilla related celebrities I’ve ever been blessed to see invade my home town with the lineup of Haruo Nakajima, Kenpachiro Satsuma, Tsutomu Kitagawa, and Shinji Nishikawa!

  • I’ve been both a Godzilla fan for most of my life and a native Texan for all of it. While I was able to find a few like minded G Fans, and Godzilla related merchandise would show up in local comic book and toy stores from time to time, there was never any Godzilla related events to attend in Texas for most of my life. However as I grew older and became more involved in online communities I began to learn of events that appealed to my love of science fiction in general. (more…)
