Godzilla: Monsters & Protectors
- All Hail the King!

Godzilla: Monsters & Protectors - All Hail the King! is a middle grade Godzilla comic miniseries which was published by IDW Comics from October 2022 to February 2023. A sequel to the previous year's Godzilla: Monsters & Protectors, it reunites the creative team of writer Erik Burnham, illustrator Dan Schoening, and colorist Luis Antonio Delgado. Set one year after the events of the previous comic, All Hail the King! sees Cedric Nishimura desperate for content for his vlog with Godzilla having made no appearances since defeating Biollante. Harassed by cyberbullies accusing him of lying, Cedric learns of a greater conspiracy below the surface which involves a threat far worse than Godzilla: the Xiliens, an alien force behind the Linival Corporation who intend to conquer the Earth.[1] Worse yet, the invaders have awakened the ancient three-headed evil known as King Ghidorah from his volcanic tomb, a foe that even Godzilla cannot hope to defeat alone. However, Cedric's new classmate Karen Higa possesses a special connection to King Caesar, the guardian kaiju of Okinawa who may be the key to turning the tide in Godzilla's favor.

IDW published a trade paperback collecting the series on August 23, 2023.[2] It was followed by a one-shot conclusion, Godzilla: Monsters & Protectors - Summer Smash, in July 2023. All three Monsters & Protectors comics will be collected together in the Godzilla: The Complete Monsters & Protectors trade paperback on August 27, 2024.
