When it came time to thinking about a project for this year, I recalled Magus Gilmore’s “Godzilla writings” and Andy Howl’s The Devils Reign III: Daikaiju” book (available at howlbooks.net). Gene Lavergne did such a […]
In Memoriam Haruo Nakajima (1929-2017) A horned salute to the man inside the Gojira suit for most of the Showa series of films (from 1954-1972). Nakajima took his work seriously, having studied the movements of large animals in Japanese zoos before striding onscreen as the King of the Monsters in Ishiro Honda’s GOJIRA (1954). The first master of suitmation acting, he had to carefully gauge his movements as they were shot faster than usual so they would appear slower and thus seem to indicate greater mass when the footage was screened at normal 24 fps. Effects wizard Eiji Tsuburaya was […]

This comic series provides an innovative take on the King of the Monsters as we find our intrepid Gojira making his way through a Dante-inspired underworld wherein he encounters various bizarre landscapes and strange adversarial monstrosities. There is no dialogue, though the imagery suggests what might be passing through Godzilla’s mind on this daunting journey, sinking ever deeper through the haunted circles of Hades. James Stokoe’s powerful premiere issue begins with a two-page spread done as a triptych of Godzilla’s fall into the abyss. His rendition seems like a nod to the late Millennium series KiryuGoji. Gojira’s first act of […]
