This publication compiles all five issues of IDW's Godzilla Legends run. The comics shifted from the excellent, such as Godzilla Legends #3, to the so-so, mainly Godzilla Legends #2. Each issue was handled by a different creative team with focus on a different monster. In total, Anguirus, Rodan, Titanosaurus, Hedorah and Kumonga (although Godzilla steals the spotlight in his issue) are the focal kaiju in the series, although Destoroyah and Mechagodzilla are along for the ride as well.

In terms of the cover, it's actually an original work by artist Matt Frank. The cover depicts all of the starring monsters with a great pose for them with Godzilla. Rodan and Hedorah in particular look amazing, while on the other hand Anguirus' mouth looks a little off. The image is certainly eye catching, though, and worth the price of admission if you missed out on any of these issues.

Overall, if you haven't given IDW's run on the King of the Monsters a chance so far, you owe it to yourself to at least check this trade compilation out. The Godzilla Legends series is, as a whole, the most conversation worthy work from the company and features some of the best issues dealing with the Godzilla character from any comic studio.

For reference, the trade includes: Godzilla Legends #1, Godzilla Legends #2, Godzilla Legends #3, Godzilla Legends #4 and Godzilla Legends #5.
