Hot Off The Presses!

In most countries, newspapers are becoming a dying medium but here in Japan, they are still booming. For example, for just 320yen, you can get this 24-page tome. Great covers and a huge centerfold spread are the selling points but it's also jam-packed with articles, interviews, and photos past and present. Guess who is featured...

Relatively few ads and even then, they feature Gojira himself (he is such a shill).

I can understand the ads for movies, figures and even the coin but a mattress??

I suppose even Godzilla has to sleep somewhere.

Unlike the manga, I'm on top of this newspaper and have snagged a few copies. Let me know if you are interested and I can send you one...

Boy With Cancer Granted Wish to Be Godzilla


The star of this movie, however, will be no Hollywood action hero, but a five-year-old boy undergoing treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
His greatest wish?
To become the 800-foot-tall lizard he watched on the big screen with his father and grandfather, also huge Godzilla fans.

That's very sweet, Dan. Thanks for the input.
I hope the kid gets his wish.
