The monsters have arisen once more, and humanity is under siege. As these titanic beasts crush entire cities with ease, a team of ex-military specialists – each with a vendetta against the monsters – assembles to do what no one else on Earth has managed yet: to take down the monsters one by one. For a price. But why are the monsters suddenly returning?

Godzilla: History’s Greatest Monster is essentially a revenge thriller with kaiju, showcasing Swierczynski’s patented breakneck pacing and love of showy action sequences, set against the backdrop of classic Godzilla monsters rampaging across various world cities. There are numerous shadowy forces at work here – shadowy government agencies, shadowy research companies, shadowy corporations ready to profit on taming kaiju (as if that’s ever a good idea) – but most of them pop up only to be swatted away and never heard from again.

Boxer and his cohorts are fairly engaging, if a little thinly drawn; any of them could be refugees from one of Swierczynski’s novels, in particular The Wheelman.

But the monster-fighting is solid and the artists inject a lot of personality into the numerous fight scenes. If you’re a Godzilla fan, you will definitely enjoy.
