In this quartet of standalone stories, different denizens of Monster Island go claw-to-claw for exciting, earth-shaking matchups. Marvel as Godzilla throws down with Mechagodzilla! Cheer on Jet Jaguar tussling with Megalon! Flight meets might as Mothra clashes with M.O.G.U.E.R.A! Not to mention SpaceGodzilla blasts into battle as well!

Godzilla: Monster Island Summer Camp
Author Rosie Knight
Illustrated by Oliver Ono
This fresh Godzilla OGN proves that kaiju are for kids. Especially the ones who’d rather befriend beasts than fight them.

But when she arrives to Make It Summer Camp, she’s horrified to see the easels and sketchboards have been replaced with dodgeball and calisthenics. The camp is under new, suspicious management that’s turned it into an extreme sports nightmare.
Determined to salvage her summer, Zelda escapes to a secluded corner of the island. Here she can finally draw in peace. At least until she stumbles into a portal to a fantastic world!
Welcome to Monster Island, Zelda!
There she makes a connection with baby kaiju Minilla and discovers the beauty of these legendary creatures. However, all is not well on Monster Island. Great evils are stirring and if Zelda can’t protect their home, the kaiju will unleash their wrath on the world.
