    This misses a perfect score because I didn't read the previous issues and am lacking the backstory on the human drama. For classic monster smashing and fighting, this is fantastic. Read Full Review

    It should also go without saying by this point that the art by David Wachter is out of this world. He and Bunn have combined for a classic entry in Godzilla's rich comic history. Whether you're an old school fan of the Toho monsters or just got into it after the 2014, this is a series that you're sure to enjoy. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Dec 17, 2014

    But I must say the concepts presented and the refrain from just throwing any such monster out for the sake of a gee-whiz factor made this entire series a refined and pleasing addition to the IDW selection of miniseries (like Half-Century War) honoring this wonderful monster at the anniversary year of his creation.

    Hiroshi coming to terms with his part in the Cataclysm was poetic and carried enough gravitas to make the moment a powerful one. Dave Wachter can draw one mean monster. His artwork is gorgeous and his well-constructed page layouts make all the difference in Godzilla vs. Destroyah looking like a battle instead of two giants stumbling into buildings. The ending could have been a little better and while I can't tell if a sequel is in the cards, this book is still worthy of your hard earned money, just for the art alone. Read Full Review

    Buccaneer Book Reviews - Have-A-Peg Pete Dec 19, 2014

    The only thing that threw me off, and admittedly this is hard one to get around" the sound FX sound so ridiculous. I mean "SKRONK"?! But anyway, a decent read, and a heavy hitter in the action department, I would look into the series, though this single issue is not particularly worthy of purchase. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Daniel Alvarez Dec 19, 2014

    Overall, Cataclysm ends with an exciting final battle, but the story itself is left unsatisfied. By the end, the reader is wondering…”So what now?” There's too much exposition crammed into this issue trying to make sense of everything that is happening. The characters are forgetful and besides Hiroshi, none play a vital role here. While Cataclysm is not the best Godzilla mini-series, it's still definitely worth a read. Read Full Review
