Description

"Move over dinosaurs… monsters used to rule the planet! Travel to different time periods to examine the origin of myths that fueled nightmares! In this first installment, Godzilla brings his terror to feudal Japan!"[1]

Plot

In the year 1274, all able-bodied warriors were called to put aside their political differences to go to Hakata Bay to defend against the Mongol invaders who had gained control of the monsters Gigan and Megalon. The warriors Gorou Suda and Akio, who had been bitter enemies until that point were then tasked with taking down the monsters. The rest of Japan's forces were planned to defend against the Mongols while Akio and Gorou climbed Mount Purotekuta to meet the Shobijin, who would help them save Japan. At the summit, they were faced with a swarm of enormous crabs called Heikegani. After defeating them, the monster Orochi rose from the ground, but the Shobijin assured the warriors that they need not defeat Orochi, but control it before taking Gorou with them, putting a spell on Akio's arrow and leaving her to fight Orochi. The Shobijin then gave Gorou an idol that they assured him would put Orochi under his control as long as he was holding it. With Orochi under their control, Akio and Gorou began to head for the bay, but were interrupted by a blast from a mythical monster that Akio knew as Gojira. It quickly defeated Orochi, causing Akio to use one of her arrows to anger it. They then rode as fast as they could to Hakata Bay, with Gojira close behind. Just as Megalon and Gigan had reached the Emperor's castle, Gojira arrived and shifted his attention on to his new opponents. In the battle below the monsters, Akio noticed the Khan general, who referred to himself as a "Nebulan" in need of the planet, using some type of device to control the monsters, which she destroyed with a well placed arrow. With no direction, Gojira quickly defeated the threats and swam out into the bay. Gorou and Akio then put aside their differences and vowed to work together to defend their homeland.

In the year 2016, Dr. Benjamin Thompson and Nikki Kasumi were visiting the sight of the battle against the Mongols at Hakata Bay, where they were looking for evidence that monsters sank the Mongol fleet and not a typhoon. Underwater, they found that the ships had been super-heated, petrified, and preserved, leading them to believe it was the work of the monster then known as Godzilla. Katsumi had a hard time believing Thompson's theory, but he insisted that they keep looking.

That sounds pretty awesome! I'll be intrigued to see what design they pick for Orochi.

I read the issue. Snowman only has a very brief cameo that will be hard to notice, but it's definitely him. Orochi doesn't appear to be based on one of the Toho designs, since Orochi is a stock mythological character IDW probably chose to just use their own interpretation rather than license one of Toho's.
