With the Dianii and Black Hole war over, ending a terrific chapter in Godzilla's history, Dark Horse decided to try a new story line. Unfortunately it was not very well received, at least compared to the first eight issues.

As you read the comic you find out about a notorious villain named Professor Mason that has the technology to teleport the big G to anywhere he wishes—that is to say, any place or time. So now G-Force must race to stop this madman from using Godzilla to attack and cover Mason's tracks for stealing artifacts from the past. An interesting concept, but it pales in comparison to the Cybersaurus/Simian invasion of the first 8 issues.

The art is fair, at least far better than the atrocious issue 8. Dialogue is a bit comical and fakey at times, but then again you have to expect that from the storyline. The sci-fi element of time travel kind of makes most of the series dialogue sound like it was pulled directly out of a 1960's space flick. The best part about the comic though, has to be the cover, painted by the superbly talented artist, Bob Eggleton. The attention to Godzilla's scales and texture are just breathtaking to look at close. Truly a talented artist that would grace the next couple of covers, each arguable better than the last.
