    If you want to see beautifully drawn Kaiju destroying cities I'd suggest you add this to your pull lists. Especially since it sounds like this book is going to need as many pre-orders as possible to survive. Read Full Review

    Godzilla: Rulers of Earth #1 moves at Mechagodzilla-firebreath-fast pacing, and is an absolute treat for fans of Godzilla or over-the-top mayhem. A Roland Emmerich Production this is not, but an imaginative twist on the decades-old character. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jun 26, 2013

    I was pleasantly surprised how good this comic turned out and that's no slight on the property or the creators. It's a very hard thing to strike a balance between good story, action and have it paced so well. It has everything a plethora of readers would want. You get the monster battles, but also an introduction of concepts and characters you'll want to stick around reading about for months to come. Read Full Review

    New readers can get into this. While, most already know of Godzilla in some form, even those that don't shouldn't have any problem picking up this story and joining the megazoologists as they seek to understand these gargantuan animals. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Daniel Alvarez Jun 25, 2013

    Overall, Rulers Earth starts out nicely with everything we love about Godzilla. The fun atmosphere will be sure to appeal to everyone, and there's some really good monster action. Zilla, love or hate him, has never looked better. With a classic subplot straight out of one of the movies coming, it's safe to say this series is going to get big. And not to mention some of the Easter Eggs fans will pick up, such as a model of the Gotengo and a pic of Gorosaurus. Godzilla is back with what looks to be his best comic series yet.

    While the issue offers an incredible mix of Godzilla monsters and more than any other book I can think of, it does so without any reasoning or strong story. “Rulers of the Earth” is chock full of plot, but as it stands no story. Perhaps the story of Lucy will truly emerge within a couple of issues, but as it stands this debut issue failed to hold my attention. Read Full Review

    The Godzilla lore comes fully equipped with all the ingredients needed to make an awesome comic book. Turning out this dreck is shameful. Read Full Review
