Godzilla: Here There Be Dragons

Godzilla: Here There Be Dragons #2 is a comic book from IDW Publishing. It was published on August 9, 2023.[1]


Sir Francis Drake and his crew have reached the edge of the world... and Godzilla lives there! Rather than fear this monstrous "dragon," however, the expedition's resident scoundrel Henry Hull sees opportunity. He believes that the pirate who was last in possession of a great treasure passed by the desert island that Godzilla seemingly protects, and what better place to hide a fortune than one guarded by a creature most would be too cowardly to go near. But Hull doesn't have time to plot his own expedition to liberate the treasure before the Spanish Armada arrives![2]


Listing storied sea monsters - the Kraken, mermaids, sea serpents, a great white whale - "One-Eyed" Henry Hull declares Godzilla more fearsome than them all. Upon his first encounter with the kaiju aboard the Golden Hind, he nearly fired a cannon at him, though Sir Francis Drake ordered him not to light it. The Spanish Armada, having also weathered the storm, fired the first shot at Godzilla instead. He quickly smashed two ships together, snapped two more in half with his tail, and incinerated the rest with his atomic breath before disappearing underwater.

In the present, his interrogator scoffs at the story, though Boggs agrees that dragons are real, citing the story of St. George slaying one. He and Hull point out that to contradict the story would be blasphemy, and the interrogator, unwilling to do so but still skeptical, sarcastically agrees that dragons are "as plentiful as bunny rabbit." Hull resumes his story. The Golden Hind swam through the wreckage of the armada and set anchor at Monster Island. The crew were quickly startled by a group of giant sea turtles headed straight towards them, but Drake again ordered them not to attack. The sea turtles crawled harmlessly past them into the sea. That night, they ventured into the forest and found Martin Yanes's lost ship, the crew, including Yanes, long-dead and a slain giant crab lying on the deck. Drake finds his journal, which seems to be the ideal key to locating his treasure. Before he could properly read it, however, he and his men were attacked by a swarm of flying bats.

The interrogator remarks that Hull's story just grows more and more fantastical. Hull responds that both Monster Island and the human conspiracy surrounding it are indeed well beyond the average person's knowledge. When he states again that Queen Elizabeth I is one of the conspirators, Boggs explodes in anger and drags him to the gallows to be hung. The rest of Hull's story, he says, will be heard only by Satan.
