It's the most dangerous heist ever attempted. Four desperate criminals are going all in on a once-in-a-lifetime chance to steal millions in art and turn their miserable lives around. The catch? They have to pull it off under the nose of a one thousand-ton Kaiju. And a giant monster might just be the least of their problems.
Brought to you by James Patrick (Grimm Fairy Tales, Death Comes to Dillinger, The Monsters of Jimmy Crumb) and Rem Broo (The End Times of Bram and Ben, Terminal Protocol), THE KAIJU SCORE is what happens when a Quentin Tarantino film takes place smack in the middle of a Godzilla movie.

    I like kaiju, I like heist films, and I enjoy comics. Everything is coming up my way here as we get the first foray into this world where kaiju are real. I like the idea of using one as cover for the big score that they want to pull off here and knowing that things are likely to go horribly wrong at some point. Patrick's script covers a lot of ground here in a really strong way and I'm definitely keen to see more of Broo's artwork and designs, especially as the potential for some crazy action sequences are in the offing in order to pull off the heist. There's definitely a lot to like here and I suspect it's going to please kaiju fans a lot as it gets out there and into more hands. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Nov 25, 2020

    Broo’s art is a real selling point to this issue. The character work is really sharp and you are never trying to figure out who is who. When the character of Marco is explaining to the reader aspects of the migration of the mullet fish, Broo’s art style changes and it some of the prettiest pages I’ve seen in a while - his color work using reds is really, really nice. The kaiju design, of the one we see in this issue, is also really cool looking. Read Full Review

    Kaiju Score #1 is a paint-by-the-numbers debut issue that mixes genres in an attempt at originality. Great art, but a predictable opening issue doesn't do this new series any favours. Read Full Review
