THIRD EYE PICKS OF THE WEEK: GODZILLA HALF CENTURY WAR TPB — You guys know we’re big, big fans of James Stokoe’s work here at Third Eye, so whenever he’s got a new project out, we’ve gotta give it mad shout-outs.
This week, the trade paperback collection of his GODZILLA: HALF CENTURY WAR miniseries arrived, and we’re pretty pumped about it.
The year is 1954, and Lieutenant Ota Murakami is on hand when Godzilla makes his first landfall in Japan. Along with his pal, Kentaro, Ota makes a desperate gamble to save lives.. and in the process, begins an obsession with the King of Monsters that lasts fifty years.
Each chapter takes place in a different decade, literally showing a timeline of Godzilla’s evolution through the years, as well as showcasing the different monsters he’s encountered.
From the atomic scare of the 50s to the environmental concerns of the 70s to the modern day, HALF CENTURY WAR is THE Godzilla comic to end all Godzilla comics. It’s that great.
Snag yourself a copy of the trade, and find out why we’re so big on this one. I mean, the artwork alone makes it worth it.
NEW COMIC DAY TOMORROW, OUR PICKS: BORDERLANDS ORIGINS TPB — You guys know we love the heck out of the BORDERLANDS video games, so when we saw IDW was serving up the world of BORDERLANDS in a comic — we knew we had to get into this.
Like many of you, the lingering question has always been there: how did the Vault Hunters get on the bus with Marcus in the first place? And, now we find out. In BORDERLANDS ORIGINS, find out how Roland got on the bus with Mordecai, Lilith, and Brick in this exciting look at the soldiers of the Crimson Lance and what made him leave their ranks and search for the Vault.
Extremely well done, we give this one a high recommendation!
