In the 1500s, a ship of seafaring navigators run afoul of a lost world where there is only one king, the King of the Monsters!

Before humanity had successfully traveled the entire globe, it was believed that monsters ruled the oceans just beyond the horizon. “Here there be dragons…” was written on maps to denote the areas people dared not go.That is, until Sir Francis Drake circumnavigated the seas, visiting foreign lands and collecting treasure. That’s what history tells us, at least, but history does not have the full tale. 

Monsters did lurk yonder, living on an island that still doesn’t appear on any map, and among them was the king of them all…Godzilla! From Frank Tieri and Inaki Miranda, the incredible team behind Old Lady Harley, comes a Godzilla adventure like no other. Collects the five-issue series.

My son is a huge fan of Godzilla and all things kaiju. He loved this. I really enjoyed how it slipped in various historical figures and gave them epic fates and encounters with the creatures of monster island. The illustrations are truely epic and lots of fun. The air of storytelling has notes of pirates of the Caribbean and the classic Godzilla with plenty of an action. Beautiful artwork.

Oh this was so fun! Godzilla: Here There Be Monsters is perfect for Godzilla and kaiju fans. The artwork is wonderful and the story is fast-paced and engaging. There is also a lot of humor in this short book. Very easy to read in one day. I loved how the artist made all characters look unique enough so I could always tell which character was talking. Overall, I highly recommend this graphic novel for readers who love Godzilla, need a short book to read to meet a reading goal, and/or readers who love graphic novels.

Confession time: Godzilla: Here There Be Dragons is the first Godzilla comic that I’ve ever read. With that said, I love Godzilla. I love big monsters, so this is right up my alley. The graphic novel that I read collects the five issues of the miniseries.

Our story starts with Mr. Hull, a pirate, in jail being interrogated in the British Territory of the Caribbean in 1556. He’s telling a seemingly fantastic story of famous pirate captains, Kaiju in the ocean, and the mysterious monster Island.

I’m always Team Give Me More Godzilla, because who doesn’t like to see Kaiju battling it out for supremacy? Plus, when the King of the Monsters is involved, everything is just a little bit better. However, as always with Godzilla, less can be more. While I would’ve been happy to have him a little present, I’m very content with what we got.

This is a cool concept for Godzilla writers (and maybe films?) to explore. Similar to how I liked what they did with Prey in the Predator franchise, why not have Godzilla or other Kaiju throughout different lives in history?

The artwork and coloring from Inaki Miranda and Eva de la Cruz was fantastic. I really liked it.

If you like Godzilla and other Kaiju, this is for you. Give it a read.

Thank you NetGalley and IDW Publishing for sending this book for review consideration. All opinions are my own.
