So maybe I talked about it before, but in case nobody knew, I have an issue of Godzilla Legends coming out in February. It's being drawn by E.J. Su, with colors by Priscilla Tramontano. I've seen E.J.'s roughs for the issue and they are simply mind-blowing. And when Priscilla add her skills to the book, I think it's going to be something really special.
It's a lifelong dream to be able to do something for the franchise that I've loved all of my life, and to be able to work with two people I consider to be not only talented, but good friends, makes it all that more special.
But how about I show something? Well, I can't show any interiors yet, but here's one of the covers by the legendary Art Adams, featuring the main bad guy in the book, HEDORAH (aka The Smog Monster)!
If you like this image, be ready for a nice surprise later this month from Godzilla Legends series editor, Bobby Curnow!

So, in doing my usual thing of waiting for over a year to update anything, I have reached a point where I finally have something news-related to share and it's pretty big news to me. I'll finally be writing a Godzilla comic! Better yet, I'll be working with two people that I've been wanting to work with for a long time.
GODZILLA LEGENDS #4 will be out in February and features a story by me, artwork by the extraordinary E.J. SU, and colors by PRISCILLA TRAMONTANO! Both are big Godzilla fans and even cooler people, so I really wanted this to be the team on the book. Thanks to series editor Bobby Curnow, it's now a reality. I'll take the opportunity to promote Bobby's issue (Godzilla Legends #5 in March), too. Good stuff... you'll see.
Back to #4, though. Not to give away any potential spoilers in the story, the monster roster features GODZILLA, MECHAGODZILLA (Heisei version), and HEDORAH (aka, the Smog Monster)! I love Hedorah and was really happy that I was allowed to do some of the things that I wanted to in the script. The story takes place in China and is not meant to be in any real continuity with the films, just a standalone tale.
So, there you have it. To say that I'm excited is a huge understatement. Working on the Godzilla franchise has been a true dream come true for me. I've been a fan of the series for as long as I can remember and while the collecting has tapered off a bit over the years, I'm still always on the lookout for the next item to add to the collection. I'm happy that a book I wrote will eventually be one of those things.
More to come... like artwork! Stay tuned.
