Why You Should Read Godzilla: Cataclysm #1
The latest mini-series from IDW Publishing’s Godzilla comic line, Godzilla: Cataclysm was announced back in May. From the start, it looked very promising, being a post-apocalyptic Godzilla story, something that had not be done before. Did it live up to expectations?
In the story, years have past since the “kaiju apocalypse”, which effectively wiped out most of humanity. A group of survivors in Japan venture into the ruins of what used to be Tokyo only to find the shock of their lives.
This is a very unique setting to a Godzilla story. And seeing how the world operates, trying to rebuild a society out of the rubble is really something. We’ve never seen a Godzilla story like this. And right off the bat, the characters are already showing a certain amount of personality and depth. Cullen Bunn is crafting a wonderful story here.
It’s Dave Wachter’s artwork that truly sells the story, though. The somber, lonely tone is really evident through the excellent visuals of the destroyed city, silent and still, covered in plant life. It looks almost peaceful, in a way. Then the action begins, and it is projected wonderfully onto the pages. You really get the feeling of suspense and urgency when the characters flee for their lives. The kaiju themselves really steal the show, though, as far as art goes. I won’t name any names, but all of them, from the ones in the opening to the ones in the climax of the issue, look absolutely gorgeous. Kudos to Wachter for really bringing these beasts to life. They are very lively and consistent throughout.
Overall, a fantastic start to the series. This series, like the Half Century War, shows a lot of promise. It moved a little quickly, but you can’t fault the team for that. This is the Godzilla story I’d always wanted to see, and I really cannot wait to see more of this world that Mr. Wachter and Mr. Bunn are creating.
9/10

Reasons why you should read IDW’s Godzilla: Rulers of Earth.

All these gorgeous scenes are drawn by the monstrously talented duo, Matt Frank and Jeff Zornow (and a badass Mechagodzilla by Paul Hanley)! 

In addition to the reasons above, over 30 different monsters appear throughout the series! And the next issue features an army of mechs, so don’t miss it!

SUPPORT RULERS OF EARTH SO WE CAN CONTINUE TO SEE THIS BADASSERY!

Yes…

This makes me so happy to see.
Also, “Russian Mechagodzilla” is a bullet point.

(I’ll be slightly pedantic and point out to the original poster that the Russian MechaGodzilla cover was by me- my one contribution to the insane awesomeness that’s 99.999999% Matt and Jeff.) ;) 

I’ll never know how that slipped by me. Sorry, edited!
