Whoofy, the chubby, flatulent, disappointing son of the legendary ApeWhale, has made a new friend at the prison: a mysterious young boy who claims to have dreamed himself there. All's well until the boy starts putting some sinister ideas into his head. Also: Splattering guts! Half-assed police work! Home-brewed electricity! And... Chibi comics?

    Kaijumax is a testament to how affecting a fantastical setting with realistic characters can be. It's a harsh and uncompromising prison story but the scale of its players allows it to realize uniquely brutal moments in an imaginative and confrontational manner. Not a comic for the light of heart but a great read for any fan of Sci-fi, Kaiju, or well written drama. Read Full Review

    This is a series that always challenges me as a reviewer. The story is complex and so it feels a bit pointless reviewing it without going over spoilers and hard details, but I think this issue is the easiest to not do that too because of the payoff it delivers. With every issue, I have no idea where Zander Cannon will take this very mature look at the Kaiju in prison, but I'm always on board. Which is strange because I usually hate mature prison stories because they're mostly a terrible look at something that's actually happening right now. I guess telling the story with giant monsters softens the blow and holds my interest. With that said I'm really looking forward to reading the next issue and seeing some of these story treads come to a conclusion. Read Full Review
