Godzilla: Oblivion

Godzilla: Oblivion is a five-issue comic book miniseries from IDW Publishing. Written by Joshua Fialkov and illustrated by Brian Churilla with colors Jay Fotos, it ran from March 30 to July 27, 2016. When Dr. Elias Talbert successfully opens a doorway into another dimension, he and his colleagues find this alternate Earth overrun with kaiju, the largest and most terrifying among them being Godzilla. Godzilla's nemesis King Ghidorah escapes into the original dimension, forcing the humans to bring Godzilla through as well. However, Godzilla soon proves the greater threat while King Ghidorah is converted into a cyborg to fight on behalf of humanity. To make matters worse, the inhabitants of the alternate Earth soon send the rest of their monsters through as well.

Oblivion was republished as part of the Godzilla: World of Monsters trade paperback in August 2021, along with Godzilla: Gangsters & Goliaths and Godzilla: Cataclysm. Saldapress translated and released the series in Italy across three issues from March to May 2021.

Godzilla: Oblivion was first revealed on December 15, 2015, following the end of IDW's latest miniseries, Godzilla in Hell. The series' original title was going to be Godzilla: World's End, but it was set to be changed to Godzilla: Oblivion by the series' release in March 2016. The name change may have been partially to avoid confusion with the 1998 novel Godzilla at World's End.[1] The cover for the issue revealed that the comic would be written by Joshua Fialkov, writer of the Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift comic series, and illustrated by Brian Churilla. The variant cover for issue #1 is illustrated by James Stokoe, known for his work on Godzilla: The Half-Century War and Godzilla in Hell #1, while another cover is done by Graham Nakamura.
