Godzilla: Cataclysm, by Dave Wachter and Cullen Bunn

It's been many years since Tokyo was devastated by a giant monster battle.  The monsters haven't been seen or heard for a while, but the city still has not recovered.  A few survivors live among the ruins, scavenging for their daily needs and wondering when and if the monsters will come back.  Godzilla: Cataclysm, written by Cullen Bunn and illustrated by Dave Wachter, follows the story of some survivors who may have roused the monsters.  One of them even has some insight into what got them so worked up.
Lots of the familiar monsters return.  Godzilla's place as the king of them all is threatened, but fear not, Godzilla fans!  You won't be disappointed in their hero.  The story is thin.  A somewhat promising eco-monster is introduced.  What we really want to see is the monster fights, right?  And the monster fights are as epic as can be on the printed page.  Getting this one on film would keep CGI artists up nights!

This collection of Godzilla comics will please the fans.  I grew up watching the movies, and still enjoy the new ones when they are released.  Pick up Godzilla: Cataclysm for a bit of a fix until another Godzilla blockbuster movie is released.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the complimentary electronic review copy!
