Godzilla, Monster World, G-Fan

Monster World, a special issue from Famous Monsters Of Filmland. This is a fantastic full-color glossy issue highlighting all things Godzilla, Toho and Kaiju related. I picked this up at Halley's Comics on Free Comic Book Day and I'm glad I did. Go Go Godzilla!


 

I picked this G-Fan Godzilla fanzine up at an antique shop in North Tonawanda. Theres a couple of cool stories about the famous flying scene in Godzilla vs. The Smog Monster and another article about Godzillas "comeback" in 1984. 
 

Godzilla Color Special #1 from 1992.
