|Holy crap, Stephen Bissette's Godzilla!|
I've discussed some of those comics in formal reviews here on EDILW in the past, and I will likely discuss the rest here at some point in the future. I'll also discuss the new film, which I just returned from seeing about an hour or so ago, although I'm not sure if it will be in the next installment of Everything Else" or in a standalone pose; techinically, Godzilla's not a comic book character, so I'm not sure if I should give his new film a post of its own or not. Either way, I still have to write up my thoughts on Amazing Spider-Man 2 before I get to Godzilla.
In short though, it is not a very good movie (awesome trailer, though!), and while it's much better than the 1998 American Godzilla film, it repeats many of the same mistakes, including a new, more "realistic" design that, while closer to the original Godzilla than Godzilla '98's "Zilla," still doesn't look right.
And, in fact, Godzilla '14 doesn't look anywhere near as cool as the version of it that Arthur Adams drew on the cover of Godzilla: Awakening, the official movie tie-in graphic novel published by Legendary Comics:
I tweeted my initial reactions to the film on twitter, because I tweet, because I am a young, hip, with it, social media savvy type cat. My initial thoughts on the design?
