    See the King of the Monsters from the unique mind and pen of talented writer-artist James Stokoe in the Godzilla By James Stokoe Deluxe Edition hardcover collection.

    James Stokoe's The Half-Century War is a critical and fan favorite Godzilla tale that follows one man's journey for the most famous monster out there! The year is 1954 and Lieutenant Ota Murakami is on hand when Godzilla makes first landfall in Japan. Along with his pal, Kentaro, Ota makes a desperate gamble to save lives... and in the process begins an obsession with the King of the Monsters that lasts 50 years.

    Then, from Stokoe's amazingly illustrated issue of the series Godzilla in Hell, Godzilla battles through the first layer of Hell! This collection also includes select development, penciled, and inked art, as well as all of his comic covers!
