The Despicable Deadpool team reunites to give the world the giant monster attack story that movies and TV are too squeamish to show you.
This is a tale of woe about a monster with physical needs. It needs a restroom. It needs food, too. And, most unfortunately, it needs...sexual satisfaction. The only thing standing in its way are the men and women of science. We're proudly flying our M rating for violence, mild gore, sexual situations, nudity, dudity, turds, comedy, drama, and, um, some very tasteful swearing.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Apr 12, 2023

    The Giant Kokju #1 certainly did not lie in its solicitation that its "proudly flying our M rating. Does that lead to a must-read parody comic book? Absolutely not. It's a shame because the kaiju genre is filled with ways you can parody it in a fun way. Unfortunately, there was zero attempt of that here. What you instead get is something that is as eye-rolling as comic books can get. Read Full Review
