IDW Publishing Announces Godzilla: Cataclysm

Godzilla: Cataclysm

Just as Godzilla is making his way back into theaters, IDW Publishing has announced Godzilla: Cataclysm, a new miniseries from writer Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun) and artist David Wachter (Night of 1,000 Wolves). Last seen in the monster apocalypse, Godzilla has all but abandoned humanity. In the ashes of a nightmarish future, an elder tribe leader, Hiroshi, is haunted by the monsters of the past that nearly wiped out mankind. As danger begins to escalate for his tribe, the memories of the past may well be the key to saving the future. "I've wanted to write a Godzilla story for as long as I can remember," said Bunn, "before I even started Kindergarten, I drew a book titled Attack of the Monster, which featured Godzilla, along with other monsters, terrorizing the world. The story started with Godzilla erupting from an iceberg and ended when the military dropped a massive sword on his head. I like to think that my storytelling sensibilities have matured since those days, but the desire to write a Godzilla story has remained with me." Godzilla: Cataclysm will begin in August, joining IDW's ongoing Godzilla series Godzilla: Rulers of the Earth.
