Legendary Pictures and director Gareth Edwards have released official word of Godzilla returning to comics. Check out the quick interview from Edwards below and the press release for more details. 

Are there any Godzilla comics you Maniacs would recommend?

Press Release: In May 2014, audiences will witness the epic rebirth of the King of the Monsters as Legendary and Warner Bros. bring Godzilla to the big screen. To pave the way for the iconic creature's return, Legendary Comics is proud to present the official graphic novel Godzilla: Awakening. This 72-page story, set decades before the film, is co-written by Max Borenstein (screenwriter of the new Godzilla) and Greg Borenstein.

Delve into an incredible mystery, generations in the making. At the dawn of the atomic age, humanity awakens lifeforms beyond imagination, unleashing monumental forces of nature. This explosive, larger-than-life adventure is the perfect way for fans to experience the new Godzilla before seeing it in theaters.

Godzilla: Awakening is illustrated by Eric Battle (X-Men, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman), Yvel Guichet (Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero, Superboy Annual, End of Nations), Alan Quah (Rage, The Vampire Diaries, Anywhere) and Lee Loughridge (Batman Adventures, Arkham Asylum: Living Hell, Marvel Zombies Return), and features cover art by Arthur Adams (Godzilla, Fantastic Four, Hulk, Uncanny X-Men).

 I hope Gareth Edward's movie is a tremendous success and rekindles interest in rebooting other popular horror films from the 1950's like Creature from the Black Lagoon which was on it's way to production until the critical and box office flop of 2010's The Wolfman.

I think the only way to really appreciate the awesomeness of  Godzilla is to see him in live action on tv or the big screen. Comic or graphic novel doesn't do him justice.
