    Nice!!

    Side-note: If you're not reading the new IDW Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters series, you are seriously missing out. Great stuff, there.

    EDIT: That pic made me wonder about something...obviously if you're creating a series/mini-series involving those two properties, then you'd have to get permission from both Hasbro/Takara and Toho (or whoever has the Godzilla properties now) respectively. But do you have to go through any of those legal loopholes just for a cover or individual print?

    An official comic or cover would be a legal nightmare between Toho, Hasbro, Takara, IDW, etc. So that up there is about as close as we'll get ;)

    Even if you don't love the IDW Godzilla series, the retailer incentive covers are all the impetus you need to pick them up. Matt Frank's issue 2 Rodan cover is fantastic. Easily worth the price of admission. Can't wait to get that King Ghidorah cover, and even Kumonga.

    Matt Frank's work is a HUGE inspiration for me - hell, he's actually my all-time favorite artist. Great guy to chat with, too. :)
