France is in danger when the mysterious egg that washes ashore begins to hatch, but should the military be worried about what's inside the egg or those creepy kids who found it? Also, a community of monks has a religious experience of the 3-headed variety. And all the while, Godzilla seems hell-bent on coming to America...but hasn't Anguirus already claimed it as his turf? Fight! Fight!

    I was uncertain about this series from the get-go, as much as I've liked Godzilla since I was a kid, but Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters #4 is the issue that officially hooked me, and I'm in for the full ride. Read Full Review

    Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters #4Posted: Saturday, July 2, 2011By: Ray Tate Eric Powell, Tracy MarshPhil Hester, Bruce McCorkindale (i), Ronda Pattison (c)IDW As Godzilla and Anguirus meet and a soldier looks upon the current generation with disdain, the quality of the artwork matches the previous issues. Hester, McCorkindale and Pattison convince you that Godzilla is King of the Monsters. Their illustration of the battle-fatigued soldier feels authentic, and their underplayed talking heads neatly spotlight the stupidity of some media pundits. Read Full Review

    The pot shots at pop culture also fall flat this time around as Jersey Shore gets spoofed. I grew tired of these jokes by the end of issue #3, so as soon as they reared their ugly head here I simply tuned out and waited for the Godzilla portion of this Godzilla comic to start. Thankfully Godzilla did manage to somewhat salvage this issue by finally coming face to face with Anguirus on the field of battle, a.k.a. Hollywood. The fight is as big and splashy as one would imagine it to be, but it's just the opening round. Those coming in hoping for an all out brawl will have to wait until next month's issue to drop. Hopefully it contains more monsters and less melodrama. Read Full Review
