Godzilla: The Original Marvel Years Omnibus Collects Moench and Trimpe’s Thunderous Series
Marvel Comics introduced a groundbreaking series in 1977 featuring the iconic kaiju, Godzilla. This collaboration with Toho International, the U.S.-based subsidiary of the Japanese studio responsible for bringing Godzilla to life, brought together two comic book trailblazers: writer Doug Moench and artist Herb Trimpe.
Marvel Comics is giving fans the chance to relive the thrilling adventures of Godzilla and their favorite Marvel heroes in the upcoming omnibus collection, Godzilla: The Original Marvel Years. This omnibus release will gather all 24 issues of the beloved series, each one meticulously remastered and presented in vivid color for the very first time.
Prepare to witness the awe-inspiring sight of Godzilla wreaking havoc across the United States and the Marvel Universe. Watch as the towering terror clashes with beloved Marvel characters such as the Fantastic Four, the Avengers, the Champions, Nick Fury, and the mighty mech warrior known as Red Ronin.
Brace yourself as Godzilla embarks on a journey out west, engages in a time-traveling battle with Devil Dinosaur, and even shares an unforgettable encounter with the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
But don’t underestimate the power of a miniaturized Godzilla. Even in its reduced size, this fearsome titan still manages to unleash chaos and instill terror. Prepare for a wild ride filled with aliens, mutants, mad scientists, and epic clashes between Godzilla and other colossal creatures, including Batragon and Yetrigar.
Toho recently celebrated Godzilla’s incredible 69-year history with Godzilla Day, a remarkable event featuring thrilling announcements. Among these exciting reveals was the upcoming release of the new film, Godzilla Minus One, which will hit U.S. theaters next month.
In light of this monumental occasion, Marvel Comics now joins the many paying homage to the King of Monsters by revisiting its own unique connection to this legendary franchise through the release of Godzilla: The Original Marvel Years Omnibus.
The omnibus features three impressive covers, including a stunning new artwork by superstar artist Junggeun Yoon. Additionally, two Direct Market Exclusive Variant Covers will showcase Trimpe’s iconic artwork.
Godzilla: The Original Marvel Years will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally in October 2024.
