Appearance #28! Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters #8 by Victor Santos!

October 26, 2011

Just like my appearance earlier this month in Ghostbusters #1, Godzilla is one of those properties I grew up on. As a kid I enjoyed watching the Toho Godzilla movies where the monsters were always fighting each other and destroying cities. So I was always going to pick up this book, there was no question.

My first attempt to sneak into Godzilla was by trying to sweet talk Phil Hester (the books first artist) earlier this year at Planet Comicon, my local big convention here in Kansas City.

I have this running "joke" with Phil to always give him a new flier for DMI whenever I see him. He doesn't draw as much as he used to, but man... I seriously thought I might of had a shot with Godzilla. You almost got me Phil!

But this sad story doesn't end there folks, it only gets better! Starting with issue #5 IDW had Victor Santos (The Mice Templar) take over penciling duties on the book. And man... especially with this latest issue (Godzilla #8), can he draw a great monster fight!

I contacted Victor right after his first issue came out. He didn't mind putting me in somewhere, as he was currently working on issue #8.

I love the panel Victor worked me into. I'm in an underground bunker beneath Washington D.C. with President Ogden (not to be confused with Obama).
