Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters #9-12 by Eric Powell and Tracy Marsh (Comic Review)

As with the last book review this is posted in full on and this is simply a preview. If you want to see it in full then please follow the link through to there.

Set in an alternate universe of the Heisei era, Kingdom was a twelve issue series which tried to show the monsters on a global scale and having a much greater impact upon the world. Rather than retreating back into the sea each time they appeared, the kaiju in this universe went on a rampage. They weren’t going to be quiet or kept to one island and would quite happily trash every city they ran into. Yeah, Godzilla himself didn’t stop at Tokyo in this story; he kept going and slaughtered everything in his path. To try and combat it, the American military deploys their own newly developed war machine, Mechagodzilla, which proceeds to go rogue once it falls under the control of Sergeant Steven Woods. A soldier with a severe chip on his shoulder and desiring revenge against the monsters.
