Godzilla is back in a graphic novel from Legendary

This summer’s reboot of Godzilla has been getting high marks for the marketing and the trailer, and now the lizard king is coming back to the pages of the comics, where he’s had a pretty thriving career over the years. Godzilla: Awakening will be published by Legendary Comics and its co-written by Max Borenstein (screenwriter of the new Godzilla) and Greg Borenstein. Artists include Eric Battle (X-Men, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman), Yvel Guichet (Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero, Superboy Annual, End of Nations), Alan Quah (Rage, The Vampire Diaries, Anywhere) and Lee Loughridge (Batman Adventures, Arkham Asylum: Living Hell, Marvel Zombies Return), and features cover art by Arthur Adams (Godzilla, Fantastic Four, Hulk, Uncanny X-Men). The 72-page book goes on sale May 7.

Gareth Edwards, director of the new Godzilla, piped up on YouTube to express enthusiasm for the spin-off”

    Are they really expecting that many people are gonna pay $20 for 72 pages. Legendary is truly a joke of comic book publisher.

    Is it possible to credit the artists when you use an image in a post like this?

  3. says

    Jacob, that image is not from the comic. That’s a limited edition poster by Mondo, illustrated by the fine folks over at Phantom City Creative.

    They should have “teamed” with IDW…..I’ve been reading and loving their Godzilla titles for years now!

    Legendary…..72 pages for $20, only if it’s being sold in Theatres where they can take advantage of the spontaneous buyer going in/coming out of the film super excited.
