I have to disagree with you on the fact that fans of Pacific Rim would like this. You said that the book has good characters, something Pacific Rim fans clearly hate. Plus, the story of Kill All Monsters actually seems original and intriguing, fans of Pacific Rim would rather prefer a bland, tired story to taint the awesome action instead.

Yes, I hated Pacific Rim, but I don't see how that applies. ;)

This was the one I guessed. I have the volume, I only wish that number 2 would come out soon. It was a great read and I wanna see more monster fighting!

Pick up he book guys, you won't dissapointed. And keep your eyes open for next year when another giant monster comic hits shelves. World War Kaiju, look it up/

Nice to hear the Pacific Rim music by the way, that movie rocked.

The Pacific Rim theme in the background was a nice touch. Looks like a cool story.

Interesting how this came out around the same time as James Rolfe started his reviews of the Gamera series

Now this sounds like another groovy comic and it's very appropriate you used the Pacific Rim theme.

I like Pacific Rim, so I may like this comic though I guess Del Toro's film wasn't entirely original! Still, giant robots fighting giant monsters mixed with good characters is something you can't go wrong with!

I'm sorry, but I strongly suspect from just those words that the secret in the series is blatantly obvious. One we've probably seen many times before too.

And while it's not a horror series, the Japanese series Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan is a very loose translation) does get across the impact and dread of being constantly under attack from monsters that range from twice the size of a human to maybe twenty times the size.

That artwork looked like Byrne in some places - who did it?

Sorry, I could barely pay attention to the video. I was too busy rocking out to the Pacific Rim Theme in the background. :)

HI

I want to ask what you think of IDW Godzilla comics? and will see the big G appearer in the longbox?

Lizard-Man said...

I'd have something to say about the first poster, but all I can read in his post is "Wah Wah Wah Wah Wah." It's very strange, like a huge generalization with no real basis in fact, but I can't decipher it through what appears to be a bunch of petty whining.

Oh well, I guess some comments get screwed up during the process of being approved.

In case you don't realise,, 1954 is when the first Godzilla movie came out in real life.
