Toho Company, Ltd. the producer of twenty-eight GODZILLA motion pictures, and Diamond Comic Distributors, the world’s largest distributor of comics, graphic novels and pop-culture merchandise, have reached an agreement that will bring the best GODZILLA merchandise from Japan and beyond to the United States and Canada. Diamond will choose, market, and distribute the highly desired and sought after GODZILLA toys, comics, collectibles, and lifestyle products, many of which have previously been available only in Japan.
Following Duane Swierczynski and Simon Gane’s run on Godzilla, the fan-favorite creative team of writer Chris Mowry and artist Matt Frank have returned with a new ongoing series kicking off this June, GODZILLA®: RULERS OF EARTH! In the wake of humanity’s war on Godzilla, a host of new monsters will rise up, determined to stake claim on mankind’s greatest asset… the Earth itself!
Godzilla made a splash with its 1954 debut in Japanese and American cinemas. Since then it has inspired countless spin offs, adaptations, and one awful American reboot in 1998. Having established an entire universe of monsters since its inception, the universe of the Godzilla franchise seems ripe for prime story telling in the realm of comics. Does Godzilla: Half Century War live up to its potential? Find out after the jump!
During the Godzilla panel Saturday at the San Diego Comic Con, Legendary Pictures revealed the poster, which while very plain, pays tribute to the roots of the franchise.

“Godzilla has been gone from comics for too long” said Yukio Kotaki of Toho. “And to have it return with other monsters is simply very exciting.”
At the San Diego Comic Con, Legendary Pictures handed out T-Shirts with this image of Godzilla on it. Apparently, when attendees stood in front of a webcam, the Legendary Pictures logo launched an augmented reality video showing the god lizard in action and shooting off his atomic breath.
The new Godzilla film is expected to hit theaters in 2012.
