A comicbook set around Franchise/{{Godzilla}}, following him after he surfaces in USA and rampages through Franchise/MarvelUniverse for twenty-four issues (August, 1977- July, 1979). After the later Showa films of TheSeventies made Godzilla into more of a heroic character, Marvel's comic run portrayed him as an animal AntiHero who's just too danged big for the era he lives in. He smashes lots of stuff but also ends up saving humanity from other monsters. He's been described as a giant lizard version of TheIncredibleHulk.

As is generally the case with [[ComicBook/{{Micronauts}} licensed]] [[ComicBook/RomSpaceknight properties]] that are set in the MarvelUniverse proper, Marvel still owns the villains and supporting castmembers they invented for this comic, and they still show up from time to time in other Marvel books -- mainly the [[HumongousMecha giant robot]] Red Ronin and the [[MadScientist mad scientist]] Doctor Demonicus.

Since this series ran, Creator/{{Toho}} has used its particular logo for Godzilla (shown in the upper-left corner of this page's image) as the basis for the trademark stamp of Godzilla on their own merchandise.

Written by Doug Moench, creator of ComicBook/MoonKnight -- and he clearly had a lot of fun doing it.

!!This comic has the examples of:

* ArbitrarySkepticism: Despite being in a universe filled with superheroes and various other monsters, Dum-Dum Dugan refuses to believe in the Abominable Snowman.
* ArchEnemy: Poor Dum Dum Dugan of SHIELD has to bang his head against Godzilla for 24 issues without any lasting success.
* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: In a Marvel Godzilla book, a time-travel crossover with ComicBook/DevilDinosaur was inevitable. The latter lives in a fun ThemeParkVersion of the Stone Age with cavemen and dinosaurs, so there you go.
* BroadStrokes: The writers used the general storyline of the films which had been released prior to the comic as the backstory for their Godzilla, but the flashbacks shown never actually depict specific events that ever happened in the movies.
* ChainsawGood: Rhiahn, with his rotating "helicopter blades of buzzsaw death" tail.
