Godzilla has dominated the pages of Famous Monsters since his first appearance in Issue 30 back in 1964 (“Giants from Japan”), and he was the obvious choice for our first volume of ACK-IVES.
Famous Monsters Ack-Ives: Godzilla includes over 100 pages of essential Godzilla coverage from FM’s archives, as well as an exclusive new interview with Michael Dougherty, the director of Legendary’s landmark MonsterVerse picture GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS.
For the first cover, we asked our maestro Sanjulian to paint his own interpretation of the original cover to Issue 114, which was FM’s first all-Japanese monsters issue, and features Godzilla and Rodan destroying a city.
