IDW announces digital Godzilla comics, new characters, and a new title!

May 24th, 2012 by Marc Comments


Expanding what has become an explosive publishing partnership, this summer IDW Publishing and Toho Co., Ltd.are bringing even more kaiju chaos to comic fans everywhere!

May 23rd brings the launch of Duane Swierczynski and Simon Gane’s new, ongoing Godzilla series, which features covers by Arthur Adams and Tony Harris! That’s not all, though!
That same day, after much anticipation, Godzilla will finally hit digital platforms! Available on iOS, Android, and Nook, IDW’s entire back catalog of catastrophic, giant monster destruction will be available as single issues and trades. Not only that, but the new Godzilla ongoing will launch day and date with two exclusive digital variant covers!
This bounty of crushing comics destruction comes hot on the heels of IDW’s announcement of Orc Stain creator James Stokoe’s Godzilla: The Half-Century War, a generation-spanning tale packed to the gills with Stokoe’s trademark hyper-detailed linework and nearly-psychedelic colors. If any comics creator out there was born to draw giant monsters leveling crowded metropolitan areas, folks, it’s James Stokoe.
And as if all that city-stompin’ goodness wasn’t enough, IDW has made the necessary space in Godzilla’s monstrous world for even more of Toho’s creatures, with more than 20 of Godzilla’s co-stars joining the roster of licensed characters. From fan favorites such as JET JAGUAR to lesser-known greats like the gargantuas, SANDA and GAIRA, the future of Godzilla at IDW is bound to be even more action-packed than ever.
Needless to say, it’s going to be a chaos-drenched summer for Godzilla fans.
Hopefully they all have insurance.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
