Comic Book / Godzilla Legends

More or less a five-part miniseries focusing on a different kaiju from the Godzilla franchise (Anguirus, Rodan, Titanosaurus, Hedorah and Kumonga). Each story is set in its own continuity.

Contains examples of:

  • Colossus Climb: The Kumonga issue has a man climbing on Godzilla to take tissue samples.
  • David vs. Goliath: Anguirus's issue has him fighting Destoroyah.
  • Enemy Mine: The Mechagodzilla crew realize Hedorah is a greater threat so they help Godzilla.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Matsumiya in issue 1 to help take down Destroyah, except he remembered his parachute training.
  • Mythology Gag: The Angiurus issue is full of them showing Angiurus' numerous defeats against Godzilla, Ghidorah, and Gigan. His last Showa defeat against Mechagodzilla is Destroyah nearing tearing open Anguirus' jaws.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: Dr. Anders is a nonaction guy who is not all optimistic about his monster caller while Sam is an optimstic action girl that is willing to try anything with Destroyah attacking.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: The fifth issue is supposed to give the spotlight to Kumonga but instead it is on Godzilla and an old adventurer with Kumonga just giving a fight.
