Godzilla, King of the Monsters is a comic book series by Dark Horse Comics, published from 1995 to 1996. Beginning as an expansion of the Godzilla story published in Dark Horse Comics #10 and #11, it starred the Fantastic Four-inspired G-Force team introduced in Godzilla Color Special, with Professor Yoshiwara and Burton Helzer from Godzilla, King of the Monsters Special as supporting characters. Like Marvel Comics in the 1970's, Dark Horse was unable to license any of Toho's other kaiju, so its writers invented new monsters for Godzilla to face instead. Godzilla's appearance and behavior were patterned after his Heisei incarnation: a mysterious and destructive force of nature whose opponents sometimes represented the greater of two evils.

Low sales caused the series to end partway through a story arc, which would have featured an army of monsters created by the mad scientist Dr. Yamazaki.

Issues

Trade Paperbacks

In 1998, Dark Horse reprinted the series, along with most of its other Godzilla comics, in two black-and-white trade paperbacks. Godzilla: Age of Monsters includes Godzilla, King of the Monsters Special, Godzilla Color Special, Godzilla versus Hero Zero, "Godzilla's Day" from Dark Horse Presents #106, and issues #0-4 and #16 of Godzilla, King of the Monsters. Godzilla: Past, Present, Future contains issues #5-15 of Godzilla, King of the Monsters, along with "The Origins of a Species" from A Decade of Dark Horse #4.
