GODZILLA #9 Cover by Matt Frank (ORIGINAL INKS)
Today, I present to you the original cover of GODZILLA issue #9, the series written by Duane Swierczynski and illustrated by Simon Gane (also known as Godzilla: History’s Greatest Monster).  This piece was done by artist Matt Frank.
If you’re at all familiar with the series or the cover, you’ll notice a drastic difference between this piece and the final piece. As in, one of the monsters is totally different. The final piece looks like this. Megaguirus was originally supposed to be the fourth space monster of the series, alongside Spacegodzilla, Hedorah, and Gigan. However, she was ultimately replaced by Monster X. Maybe because Monster X was able to transform into Keizer Ghidorah and all that.  Also partly because Megaguirus isn’t from space, and I’m not sure if Toho would’ve been okay with that. This would’ve been the first appearance of Megaguirus in comics. In a way, it is. Megaguirus has since appeared in Godzilla: Rulers of Earth #9, and is set to appear in future issues of ROE and Cataclysm.All credit of course goes to Matt Frank, I just scanned it. ;)

Here are the latest NECA 7” releases. A new Knifehead, a “clean” repaint of the Battle-Damaged one, is coming out in October. And in January, we get our very first Otachi figure! It’s over 18” long and includes an interchangeable “acid spit” accessory!

Here is a list of all the Toho kaiju IDW has the rights to use. There may be more than what we have here.
(From left to right - Godzilla, Anguirus, Battra, Destoroyah, Gigan, Hedorah, King Ghidorah, Kumonga, Mechagodzilla, Mothra, Rodan, Spacegodzilla, Titanosaurus, Jet Jaguar, Sanda, Gaira, Moguera, Megalon, Ebirah, Megaguirus, Biollante, Monster X, Keizer Ghidorah, Varan, Gorosaurus, Zilla, Manda, Gezora, Baragon, Orga, King Caesar, Mecha-King Ghidorah, Kamoebas, Kamacuras, Ganimes, and Minilla)
All of them have appeared in or on covers of comics at least once,with the exception of Mecha-King Ghidorah, who is confirmed, and Ganimes and Minilla, who have both been strongly hinted at (Ganimes as a cave painting, Minilla appearing on an early version of a cover). Also note that IDW could also use any form of each kaiju (ex: Hedorah’s flying and water forms) and all the incarnations of each kaiju (ex: Showa and Heisei Mechagodzilla as well as Kiryu).
36 kaiju total, but again, there may be more.
