Godzilla Cataclysm: Vol 1 Review

Godzilla Cataclysm is a recent mini comic series published by IDW Publishing. The king of all monsters returns to the comics, however is it any good? I'm happy to say yes it is. So far Godzilla Cataclysm is up to a  promising start. The story follows a group of human survivors after a huge battle between the monsters. The world has been destroyed and has enter officially the post apocalyptic era. The remaining humans are doing what they must to survive. In this issue it centers on a group of survivors trying to gather supplies. The monsters haven't been seen in a long time, so the survivors travel to outskirts of the safe zone. The survivors soon find out that they're not alone.

Godzilla Cataclysm does a great job of setting up this post apoocalyptic world. I like the fact that the battle with monsters are already over. Instead of showing the invasion with monsters and having Godzilla save the day. We get a world that has already been destoryed by battles Godzilla has already have. It's nice to see the effects of Godzilla's battles. Humans are starving for food, supplies for health and much more. It's a realistic approach on what will happen if Godzilla actually exist. The human characters so far are likeable and the pacing is really flushed out. The first issue doesn't give you much in terms of backstory or character development. However it does great on setting up this new universe. The art is great and has a lot of detail on the destruction of the city. I really enjoy the use of color for overcast and environments. Overall Godzilla is back and it's something you should check out.

Final Grade: 8.0/10
