Godzilla, King of the Monsters: the first 60 years of destruction in title cards.


Toho’s Godzilla Blu-ray covers. Hail to the king, baby.

Weekly Film Focus: During the early stages of development, King Ghidorah’s wings were envisaged as being rainbow coloured, and the three-headed monster was intended to breath fire, instead of gravity bolts (Ishiro Honda’s GHIDORAH, THE THREE-HEADED MONSTER).

I don’t know why but I can’t help but adore this artwork, it depicts the scene from Ghidorah The Three Headed Monster, with the infant Mothra trying to make the stubborn Rodan and Godzilla see the error of their ways….except this piece decided to depict them as humans which is pretty interesting. I particularly like how Godzilla smokes, sort of fits his character in the early Showa films to be a gruff angry asshole who probably chain smokes and uses a hell of a lot of foul language.
