"The King of the Monsters rises again, and for the first time in comics, he's bringing lots of other beloved Toho monsters with him in one destructive saga, and The Goon's Eric Powell is sounding the alarm."
In Japan, a boy and girl play on a beach littered with dead fish. Godzilla suddenly appears, seemingly devouring the two youths. Meanwhile, their father, a fisherman, sees the commotion and is concerned for his children. Godzilla comes ashore, and the Japanese military sends out fighter jets. Failing to subdue the monster with these means, the Prime Minister orders a nuclear attack. This however only grants Godzilla atomic breath. The beast continues onward into Tokyo, reducing it to rubble. Shortly, in America, President Ogden is made aware of Godzilla.
