This is a comic that seems to be tailor made for Hollywood. Given that many movie series have been gritty reboots over the last decade, it seems to be time to properly reboot Godzilla. No super agile, egg laying dinosaur needed, we just need a lumbering tower of destruction. That is the way Godzilla was created and it doesn't seem like is anything broken there that needs to be fixed. Base it around Godzilla's attack on a major American coastal city such as San Francisco or Los Angeles. I am assuming that Hollywood would not be rebooting the series and then centering Godzilla's attack around Tokyo again given the Tsunami that stuck there a few years ago and it would not be a good look to destroy Tokyo in a movie at this time. Also basing the movie around a squad fighting on the ground such as in Battle Los Angeles would be a great idea. If you take the squad concept and cut all of the dumb stereotypes of that movie, the new Godzilla movie would be pretty amazing in my opinion.
This is the best single comic book that I have read this year and it doesn't seem like anything will be challenging this book for a while. I cannot wait to see what this series has in store for future issues and I am looking forward to next month's issue. This is a book that needs to get more attention and if you are into comics then you should go to your local shop and pick this up. If you do not have a local comic shop then use Comixology to download the comic.
