Legendary Comics’ newest adds more Titan-ic action to the Monsterverse, filling in the gaps between the first Godzilla film and the sequel.
Now we’re on the eve of a second Godzilla film, following up on the likes of not just the first one but also Kong: Skull Island. The big guy is even crossing over into the world of comic books, with Godzilla: Aftershock.
The book continues the story after the events in San Francisco from that first movie. A new monster has risen up, a nasty Titan capable of triggering massive earthquakes. Standing in its way of course, is Godzilla.
“Part of the fun of working on a Godzilla project is that its massive scale demands that it be a collaboration with talented artists and AFTERSHOCK is no exception,” said Godzilla: King of the Monsters director Michael Dougherty. “Arvid Nelson and Drew Edward Johnson have created a story that is just as epic and compelling as Godzilla’s big screen adventures. So much so that it sometimes feels like you’re flipping through the storyboards of a movie just waiting to be shot.”Legendary Comics press release
“Arvid and Drew have created a riveting prequel that adds to the Monsterverse while acting as a story bridge between the two Godzilla films,” said Robert Napton, Senior Vice President of Legendary Comics.
Godzilla: Aftershock is available now in shops and via digital storefronts.
