Give Me Some Space.

Last night, I had the pleasure of watching a double feature of Godzilla vs. Space-Godzilla and Gojira vs. Destroyah. I preferred the latter (details later) but the first one had its merits, especially the cameo by the Cosmos. I only have three manga of Godzilla and this just happens to be one of them. I've gone through and picked out some of the more exciting pages and here they are for you...

First the cover and a few pages in colour and then it changes to Black and White. It loses none of its appeal in monochrome.

At the end of the story was this little two page bit about the inner-workings of Godzilla. Intriguing.

What follows is a post I wrote for Facebook after I watched the two movies.

Okay, here's the ultimate irony. We had decades of badly dubbed Godzilla movies and that was our only way to view them growing up. Later, the dubbing improved and eventually one can see them subtitled.
I have just spent the last few hours watching Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla and G vs. Destroyah with NO English whatsoever.
The next movie in the series to be shown is the Emmerich monstrosity from America with Matthew Broderick. And it is being shown dubbed (badly) into Japanese with NO option to hear the original voice-track. So far, it's an improvement!

I gave up after a few minutes. I guess I never will watch that movie again (imho, not a terrible movie, just don't call it Godzilla!)

 Someday, I hope to track down this book:

That's it for the Heisei era. Next up is Millenium.
