Godzilla King of the Monsters #1 – Marc Palm

Godzilla King of the Monsters

Was there ever a Godzilla movie that was told from the perspective of the monster? I know there are dozens of Godzilla movies by now, so they’re bound to have thought of that at some point. Still, Marc uses this comic to answer that question and tries to come up with what Godzilla was thinking when all this shit went down in the first movie. After all, the trouble begins when people start driving boats over his home, dropping bombs and radioactive residue down into it, so why wouldn’t he be a little annoyed? The rest of the comic deals with his potential motivations every step of the way, up to and including how the humans most likely treated what was left of Godzilla when they managed to kill him off. Even though, like I said, there were dozens of sequels with a living, healthy Godzilla. Marc also wonders how future movies went if that’s the case. Hey, I know: he could review/interpret them like he does here! That would end up being a hell of a lengthy series, assuming that he doesn’t get bored a few movies in. This was an interesting read, and my only problems with it are technical, as there are the usual few spelling mistakes/bad usages of “your.” And it’s more like a zine than a comic, but I’m the one reviewing it on a comics website, and I don’t see anything on here making the claim that this is a comic. But yeah, if you’re looking for a new take on Godzilla, you could do a lot worse than this. No price, so let’s say $2.
