The second issue in the, unfortunately, short lived comic series by Dark Horse, and the first in the series to pit Godzilla against another creature his own size. The opponent in this issue is a mech called Cybersaur, who was introduced briefly at the end of Godzilla King of the Monsters #1. The giant robot is created from a combined effort by both G-Force and the United Nations. The basic concept of the plot, and the mech in particular, plays out kind of like Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II (1993), but with more focus on casualties and the adverse affects of Godzilla's condition as a result of Yoshiwara's formula. The dialogue in this issue is adequate, on par, if not better, than the previous one. However, the art is definitely not as polished as what we saw in the subsequent issue. Coloring, once again handled by Cary Porter, seems a bit rushed as well, and I noticed that a couple of hair colors change from panel to panel. Once again, Arthur Adams does the cover for this issue and turns in an amazing job as always. Adams has a talent for capturing an action sequence in a single shot, as evident from the great picture on the front showing a blood spewing Godzilla being fired upon by an overlooking Cybersaur.
