GODZILLA RIVALS MOTHRA VS TITANOSAURUS
(W) Blue Dellaquanti (A/CA) Wind, Ferio (CA) Sophie Campbell
A Mothra cocoon has washed ashore near a big city, and a team of kaiju specialists has been deployed to study it. The team of scientists has discovered that the kaiju of the world may have a way of telepathically communicating with each other as a way to mark their individual stomping grounds, and have brought along an experimental device that they hope will detect this field of telepathic energy so that they can tune it to Mothra's frequency and chart its migration patterns in the future. When they activate the device, however, they are shocked to discover that there are two sources of these telepathic waves-the cocoon and a kaiju beneath the ocean, Titanosaurus. Detecting an intruder on its turf, Titanosaurus surfaces and closes in on the cocoon, leveling anything in its way. The scientists scramble to transport the cocoon out of range in the hopes that it will pacify Titanosaurus and keep the cocoon from hatching early.

Hundreds of kilometers above Tokyo orbits the ParaSOL science facility, connected to terra firma by a massive space elevator, together two incredible feats of engineering and international cooperation. But when the subdued kaiju Rodan and Ebirah arrive at the lab's mysterious Section X, all of that threatens to come crashing down-literally-when the pair escape their confines and tear into each other. With the two titans locked in battle and plummeting to Earth down the space elevator shaft, it's up to a team of scientists to stop them before their velocity is truly terminal-for them and for humanity.

GODZILLA RIVALS TP ROUND ONE
(W) Paul Allor, Mary Kenney, Adam Gorham, Rosie Knight (A) E. J. Su
Epic monster battles featuring some of Godzilla's fiercest rivals: Hedorah, Mothra, King Ghidorah, and Battra! Each story is an all-out, knockdown Kaiju brawl.
First, Godzilla and Hedorah smash their way through New York City while the search for the only scientist who can stop the chaos goes on in the streets below. Then, Mothra, the ancient and beautiful guardian of nature and humanity, is trapped in Lake Ikeda, but when one Kaiju awakens, Godzilla is close behind.
When Mars invades Earth, Godzilla surfaces from Tokyo Bay and is pulled into battle with the flying saucers. Captured and taken by the Martians, Godzilla is forced to fight in a gladiatorial arena, where the King of the Monsters faces its biggest challenge yet: King Ghidorah. In the finale, at a quiet beachside town ravaged by constant sewage spillages and toxic waste dumps, something is stirring. Deep under the rolling hills that surround Hackney-on-Sea, Battra is awakening, driven by a single goal: to destroy mankind and save planet Earth.
By an exciting mix of creators including Paul Allor, E.J. Su, Mary Kenney, SL Gallant, Adam Gorham, Rosie Knight, and Oliver Ono.

It's been a year and, to Cedric's dismay, there have been no more Godzilla sightings. Sure, that means no destruction, but it was also his vlog's most popular series of videos. He needs new content! His views are dropping, and he's running out of ideas. He's being called out for lying by cyberbullies Dragon, who is trying to see if Cedric really has the Godzilla chops, and Karen Higa, who has her own agenda.

The King of the Monsters Rises Again in Godzilla: Monsters & Protectors—All Hail The King! from Returning Creative Team Erik Burnham and Dan Schoening
The Five-Issue Follow-Up to Kid-Friendly Fan Favorite
Godzilla: Monsters and Protectors Debuts in October from IDW
SAN DIEGO, CA (July 22, 2021) – IDW, under license by Toho International, Inc., announces the triumphant return of the one-and-only King of the Monsters in the upcoming five-issue miniseries Godzilla: Monsters & Protectors–All Hail the King!, premiering in October.
The follow-up to the popular middle grade comic book series Godzilla: Monsters & Protectors (collected in December 2021 in the graphic novel Godzilla: Monsters & Protectors–Rise Up!) features the returning creative team of writer Erik Burnham, illustrator Dan Schoening, and colorist Luis Antonio Delgado.
It’s been a year, and to Cedric’s dismay, there have been no more Godzilla sightings. Sure, that means no destruction, but it was also his vlog’s most popular series of videos. He needs new content! His views are dropping, and he’s running out of ideas. He’s being called out for lying by cyberbullies Dragon, who are trying to see if Cedric really has the Godzilla chops, and Karen Higa, who has her own agenda. There’s more going on beneath the surface, but will Cedric find out what before something deadlier than Godzilla rears its head?
“I'm so excited to get back into the Monsters & Protectors corner of the Godzilla universe,” says Burnham. “The first miniseries was a lot of fun to work on, playing with so many of the wacky, wild, and wonderful parts of Godzilla lore... so Dan Schoening, Luis Antonio Delgado and I aim to go even further in that direction this time! We just can't wait to share another monster-sized adventure with the next generation of Godzilla fans.”
While All Hail the King! maintains the previous series’ focus on the looming threat of environmental catastrophe (with Godzilla, Cedric, and his friends serving as its only prospective foil) the new miniseries also represents a fresh opportunity for Burnham, Schoening, and Delgado to share their love of Godzilla and its legacy with a new generation, and to delve more deeply into its lore and mythos.
“Getting the opportunity to explore the world of Godzilla again is a great honor for me,” says Schoening. “I grew up watching the Shōwa era films, and having the chance to draw these larger-than-life monsters is nothing short of incredible. I hope these new stories help spread the love I have for TOHO's creations with a whole new generation of Godzilla fans.”
“We are so excited that Erik Burnham, Dan Schoening, and Luis Antonio Delgado are coming back for the next installment of Godzilla: Monsters & Protectors All Hail the King!” says editor Jazmine Joyner. “We can’t wait for fans to see where the creators will take this series next.”
Godzilla: Monsters & Protectors—All Hail The King! #1 will be available with multiple cover variants for retailers and fans to enjoy, including Cover A by series illustrator Dan Schoening, Cover B by Andrea Bell, and a retailer incentive edition by John Yurcaba.
