GODZILLA MONSTERS & PROTECTORS ALL HAIL KING #4
(W) Erik Burnham (A/CA) Dan Schoening
Ghidorah is about to attack Tokyo. Cedric and his friends know they need to call on Godzilla for help, but will the King of the Monsters listen and return for a rematch against Ghidorah? And has Godzilla healed enough to put up a fight? What if it hasn't? That's where new friend Karen comes in: she's able to call another monster... another king. From the shores of Okinawa, King Caesar is summoned to help humanity! It's the penultimate chapter of All Hail the King!

Not even going to lie, this solicit greatly
boosts my previously waning hype for the series.
Don't remember if I've said it here before but I believe King Caesar to be one of the most underrated Godzilla kaiju. ROE handled him excellently, thankfully, but outside of that he's only gotten a couple cameos, so I've been eagerly anticipating another starring role for him. And since I liked what they did with Mothra and the Shobijin in Monsters & Protectors
, I'm actually pretty confident in their ability to deliver a solid interpretation of the character with some of that unique "mystique" intact. Plus, this could be a good sign for Ghidorah being pretty tough too, if Godzilla can't fight him alone. Would be even better if a couple other monsters also joined the fray, but this is a step in the right direction all around.
Cover is a little... awkward though. Am I looking at it wrong or are we looking at part of Caesar's ass?
