A Preview of Next Week’s Godzilla: The Half-Century War

While we eagerly await more news on Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, we’ll have to sate our appetite for destruction, Big G-style, with IDW’s line of Godzilla comics.  I never really thought the Godzilla comics worked, however, next week’s release – “The Half-Century War” – looks…awesome.

The five-part mini-series was previewed at io9 and we have a peek within.

The publisher describes the tale – from James Stokoe and Orc Stain – lilke this: The year is 1954 and Lieutnant Ota Murakami is on hand when Godzilla makes first landfall in Japan. Along with his pal Kentaro, Ota makes a desperate gamble to save lives…and in the process begins an obsession with the King of the Monsters that lasts fifty years! Don’t miss the first decade in a tale of a lifetime!
