The second installment of IDW's ongoing Godzilla continuity set several years after the events in Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters. After an attack on Washington, courtesy of Godzilla, former British spec-ops Chauncey "Boxer" Louis forms up a "Monster Kill Crew" in order to bring down not only reawakened Kaiju, but also new ones coming out of the woodworks. However, things may not be as they seem and soon enough, Boxer and his team find themselves way over their heads

This series provides examples of:

  • Actionized Sequel: This comic is more focused on an action-driven story as opposed to the political satire of its predecessor.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Several kaiju who weren't overtly heroic in the films get to step up here, such as Kumonga and Battra, to fight the space monsters.
  • Anti-Hero: The Monster Kill Crew isn't really full of saints, especially Boxer. Same goes for the Kaiju who, while they do fight the Space Monsters, really could care less about the humans.
  • Badass Book Worm: Asuka Hikari.
  • Bald of Evil: Dr. Pohl
  • Big Bad:
  • Continuity Nod:
    • Godzilla's first city he attacks? Washington.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle:
    • The Monster Kill Crew are nearly killed in their first fight with Anguirus. Luckily (if you want to call that) for them, it was all part of Boxer's plan.

    • Poor Titanosaurus didn't have a chance against Rodan.
    • Mothra gets utterly destroyed by Monster X.
    • Kumonga's fight with Monster X ends with the latter ripping off the former's legs.
    • SpaceGodzilla outright wrecks Battra and Titanosaurus, despite the two ganging up on him.
  • Eye Scream: Gigan gets his visor shattered by Rodan.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Baragon at the end of issue 13.
  • Giant Mecha: MechaGodzilla, doy!
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Claire gets scars.
  • Heroic Sacrifice:
    • Urv dies trying to defuse the bombs he set up in Mt. Garibaldi that were originally supposed to be detonated in order to start an eruption that would bury Godzilla in lava after a pheromone was used to lure Godzilla away from it.
    • Boxer jumps into Godzilla's mouth in hopes of hurting him.
  • I Heard That: Dr. Pohl angrily calls Asuka a temperamental brat when talking to someone on the phone... only to see her right in front of him.
  • Mythology Gag:
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Godzilla outright trounces Hedorah by stomping him repeatedly into the ground before lighting him up.
  • One-Winged Angel: Monster X transforms into Keizer Ghidorah
