Godzilla: Rage Across Time Issue 2 Comic Book Review

“Godzilla: Rage Across Time” continues to entertain with issue 2.

In the second issue of “Godzilla: Rage Across Time,” writers Writers Chris Mowry and Kahlil Schweitzer pit Godzilla against Greek Gods. The story begins with mortal men battling before being silenced by…something. Since no one is calling out to the Gods, the arrogant Zeus personally investigates matters to discover that, you guessed, Godzilla has begun to rule the land below Mt. Olympus. As with issue 1, the story of the archaeologist and his assistant tie into the story once again as well.

What’s not to like about Godzilla Vs. Greek Gods? It’s a very neat premise that is creatively done by Mowry and Schweitzer over the course of a mere 22 pages. Do I wish certain battle scenes were extended? Sure, but that’s a minor quibble. For the most part, I like that the writers explored the concept of Gods in general as well as show what potential battles between Godzilla and Greek Gods would look like. Their take on both the Godzilla and Greek mythologies was very unique to say the least.

The art by Tadd Galusha, on the other hand, is a bit hit-and-miss. Some of the action and Godzilla panels are impressive, but a lot of the character and Greek God pieces look disappointingly pedestrian. The Gods should have looked more majestic or larger than life.

Overall Thoughts: I am enjoying this comic book series that shows Godzilla over the course of history and I can’t wait to read the upcoming issues.
