The King of Monsters reigns supreme, no matter the timeline or world, in this compendium collecting three graphic novels — Gangsters & Goliaths by John Layman and Alberto Ponticelli, Cataclysm by Cullen Bunn and Dave Wachter, and Oblivion by Joshua Fialkov and Brian Churilla! First, in Gangsters & Goliaths, monster recognizes monster, which quickly becomes obvious when Godzilla collides head on with the Yakuza-dominated Tokyo underworld.
