The writer and artist behind the bestest Deadpool comics in existence reunite to tell the hella screwed-up story of a giant monster...with very physical needs.

San Francisco is under threat from King Dong, if you will. Our entire world is threatened by this monster and its gross needs. Frank Gray foretold this monster's coming, and now it's up to him to bring matters to a climax...with the help of a mothballed mecha from the Disco Era. It's a giant monster attack like you've never seen before, or ever will again.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 17, 2023

    Its hard to imagine Duggans story remaining appealing as it crawls its way over to its third and final issue. Honestly, though, theres really no reason why this thing should have been anything other than tedious by the time it hit its second issue (or even...the second half of its first). Duggan is a clever enough satirist that hes probably going to make the comedy work right through the end of the third and final issue. Its going to be kind of a close finish, though.

    'The Giant Kokju' is an acquired taste for its unapologetic parody of a monster movie. It's an entertaining read that knows exactly what it is, an unpretentious fun ride. Turn off your brain and just sit back and enjoy the story of a horny monster wreaking havoc in a major US city.  Read Full Review

    Get Your Comic On - Dave Jones May 17, 2023

    It's certainly not the most hard hitting story I've read but The Giant Kokju definitely hits the mark for me, it's tongue in cheek trashy comedy makes me smile throughout. Some great visuals really do highlight the struggles of a modern monster, although probably not the best book to be reading on the bus. Read Full Review
