Going to take a wild guess and say a pic from Godzilla vs. Biollante will be used for issue #3.
Again, would be cool to display, but still lazy

Preview is up for issue #1 of Monsters & Protectors! Hits April 21st!

I notice they got rid of the copyright icons, so I guess we won't be spoiled on who's in it ahead of time anymore. They ditched those copyright icons on everything I think.

Excited. Aimed at a younger demographic, but it looks like it'll deliver with a fun narrative. I like the framing device of the series being a re-telling of how the kid saved the world, from Godzilla and others. I also dig the pace: within the first few pages we already get a rough idea of what the story will be about.

Looks good! Gives off vibes like an animated family film.

Regarding the copyright icons, I hope Toho doesn’t ditch them. I liked the concept & tiny unique designs they had.

Yeah, to me they were always a little quirk I liked. I remember looking at old DVD boxes just to see the little icons. I suppose they were always massive spoilers though. Perhaps in a digital age Toho has abandoned them though. Who knows, maybe they'll appear at the end.

And yeah, the "animated family film" vibe is true. I don't mind it because we've never gotten a Godzilla movie like that and I'd be interested to see how it could be done in comic form.

Well the comic came out today. And people are already calling the comic a godzilla woke and that fans should apologize to Roland Emmerich, for not being the worst thing about franchising anymore.
Well, your opinions?

I don't trust The Quartering's opinion on almost anything.
But I haven't read it yet.

Anyway, unimportant idiocy aside I just finished it. It's cute, I like it. There's not much to it so far but it isn't bad. It's for a younger crowd so it's not very complex or all too different from what a generalized Godzilla-ish story would be but it isn't poorly written nor is the art bad either. I'll keep up with it, it's decent.

Isn't that one of those scummy 'gater' sites?

I like the idea of a YA Godzilla comic, but kids don't really read floppies. I feel like this should be an OGN - the format kids do read. Then again, once it's collected as a tpb that's thr ultimate fate of the book...

I wasn't saying Quartering actually reviewed it. Just when I hear 'OHMYGOD SO WOKE' I'm like 'okay okay let me see for myself.'
Such as Quartering and his hate-thirst for Brie Larsen.
"Disney won't let anyone give any negative reviews of Captain Marvel or Brie Larsen!!!"
*Checks for myself and there are plenty of critics and reviews finding Brie a bit weak as the lead or the movie just okay and those reviews aren't being deleted.* :/ If you say so.

4# issue of monsters and protectors has been confirmed. The variant's cover remains disappointing. Also, there is no godzilla: Rivals # 2. Which is a shame, because I liked a new anthology of one-shotes.

I’m sure they’ll be a rivals 2 in the future. It just won’t be something that has a scheduled plan or release.

The variant for four might be basic, but it got me wondering. Orga? Or something to do with G2000?...

Here's another cover for issue #4; looks and sounds like Biollante is going to be quite a major character in the series.

Image

Plus the description -
Rise Up, Part 4! The Shobijin twins, with a little help, continue their mission to seek out proof that mankind is worth saving! But they have to work fast as Godzilla and Biollante gear up for another showdown-can Cedric, Anderson, and Emily help convince these kaiju that the world shouldn't be destroyed?!
The characterization of the Shobijin intrigues me, teaming up with kids again like in Rebirth of Mothra. I'm all for it.

I love that cover! Based on the description I suppose we will get a fight with the Rose form and then the Plant Beast form.

It's strange because Biollante had a big role in Cataclysm alongside Mothra. I just hope this doesn't feel like an exact repeat of that. Also, we haven't gotten to the obvious: I wonder how they'll redesign Biollante.

Very nice! I've seen the artist's work before. It's nice to see that they got to do a Godzilla comic cover.

I'd love to see Biollante's rose form! I'm actually a little surprised they haven't used it in any comics yet since Biollante has been featured in a few series.

And that is an interesting coincidence regarding Biollante and Mothra. In Cataclysm, we start with Biollante's final form, then see her start growing again from scratch after that. I'm kind of thinking this series goes the opposite route and shows Biollante evolving and growing throughout the issues. Either way, always on board for more Biollante!
