I thought that IDW Publishing was making the Godzilla comics?

That dog is a pussy! I want Godzilla vs. The Avengers. That would be better than those LAME villians, they're using in Avengers Age of Ultron.

I'm actually fine with this announcement and look forward to this. This is most likely to help bridge anything that that movie might not have time to explain or explore, while also helping introduce Godzilla to a new generation of fans within the same vicinity of the film's release. It's not exactly a bad or a cuunt move by any measures at all.

Eh, these prequel tie-in comics never tell a real story. They're just buildup, but rarely add anything to the movie.

Please show something during the Super Bowl.
