I'M WRITING GODZILLA... well, at least for an issue.

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.
