Godzilla: Monster World

Postby Ro-Dan » Fri Oct 15, 2010 3:48 pm

Over at Chris Ryall's BLOG, he mentioned that the upcoming Godzilla series, titled Godzilla: Monster World, will be ongoing. That's an unusual step for IDW. Usually, the publisher opts for the mini-series format, like their Star Trek titles.

Can anyone from the editorial staff give any info as to why the ongoing format was chosen? Are there plans for any related mini-series, featuring or spotlighting other monsters like Mothra or Rodan?

Hey Ro-Dan,

Basically, we think Godzilla has the legs to support an ongoing, especially as Eric Powell sees it... Hopefully you fans will agree.

I also think it's safe to say you'll see some cool mini-series that focus on other monsters and aspects of the Godzilla world not seen in the ongoing. We're hoping to have a little something for everyone.

Bobby, thank you so much for the response. It's safe to say that there are plenty of Godzilla fans who will support the ongoing series. I'll bet the book will also attract Godzilla fans who don't normally read comic books. We all know that our local comic book stores would love to get some new customers.

Yup - I'm no Godzilla fanboy - seen a coupel of the movies, but that's about it. Even so, I'm quite curious about this series.

That's what I thought, however Godzilla isn't in any of IDW's February '11 solicitations.

We should be able to tell some news about our first mini-series (separate from the on-going) in late January, or early February.

Small details can ruin big surprises, so in general we'll be pretty tight-lipped about things other than the creative teams. But I just read Monster World #2, and it's a LOT of fun.

Is the title "Godzilla: Monster World?" or just "Monster World?"
