Is there anything as romantic as seeing the world together? Hopping from country to country to take in the sights and splendor in the fleeting seconds before Godzilla smashes the skyline? Truly, there's nothing like the thrill of an international game of cat and mouse between an intrepid amateur kaiju researcher and a global kaiju-response lieutenant. But when you're up against Godzilla, it's hard to have a bigger "CRUSH."

    Godzilla Valentine's Special is a beautiful story about two people finding each other in the middle of years of turmoil that happen to involve giant monsters. Zoe Tunnell gives lovely arcs to both Tam and Piper, and her dialogue is full of emotion while Sebastian Piriz and Rebecca Nalty make sparks fly with the big monster battles as well plenty of close-ups of our protagonists coming to terms with their feelings. This is a must-read for fans of kaiju stories, queer romances, or both like yours truly! Read Full Review

    This would've benefitted from being both funnier and cuter, and it's a potentially deal-breaking flaw that all of the actual romance takes place off-screen at the very end. On the other hand, the art is good, the premise is great, and I really like it when representation is handled well. There's also a limit to how much I can reasonably ask of a one-shot Godzilla Valentine's Day Special, so it may not be fair to be too harsh. Next time, more humor and chemistry between the leads wouldn't hurt. Unrelated, something like this done right could unironically make a tremendous Godzilla movie.
