Godzilla: The Half-Century War (Hardcover)
Follow one man's journey from the moment Godzilla's reign of destruction begins and continues over his lifetime, one battle after another.
The year is 1954 and Lieutenant Ota Murakami is on hand when Godzilla makes first landfall in Japan. Along with his pal, Kentaro, Ota makes a desperate gamble to save lives...and in the process begins an obsession with the King of the Monsters that lasts 50 years ranging from Ghana, Bombay, and maybe the end of the world!
Also included is an expanded art gallery and issue annotations by James Stokoe.

“Even if you're not a Godzilla fan, this book is worth your attention and dollar.” —Geekality (10 out of 10)
“Art aside, what really makes this book work is the way Stokoe tells his story. It's engaging, thrilling and beautiful. I can't stress this enough, folks, buy this book. It's a must read and a must own.” —IGN (10 out of 10)
“It is certainly difficult to try and decide what is better, Stokoe's art or his script. I can't tell you how happy I am that I took a chance on this book the other day. It was such an amazing read that I felt compelled to write this review even though I met my quota for the week. I want to spread the good word about Godzilla: The Half Century War in hopes that others can find the joy that can only be found with a two hundred foot tall irradiated, fire breathing lizard.” —Read Comic Books (10 out of 10)
