Godzilla: Rage Across Time

"Classic Rome" is the fourth issue of Godzilla: Rage Across Time. It was released on November 16, 2016.


Hannibal makes his daring assault on Rome, but first he must overcome an unforeseen obstacle...Godzilla! Can the classical era’s greatest terror defeat history’s mightiest monster? Man vs. Monster at its finest![2]


In 2016, Benjamin Thompson and Nikki Kasumi are flying through the Alps in a helicopter searching for clues as to how Hannibal survived in the past.

In 218 B.C.E., a group of Roman soldiers were battling Hannibal in the Alps when Godzilla crossed their path. General Hannibal Barca and his men, who had only barely escaped defeat by the monster, decided to attack it like the siafu (driver ants) had done to a rhinoceros in his home village: by forming an unbreakable column and attacking it as a body. Hannibal's mercenaries talked him into letting them rest for a while, and they were ambushed by Roman soldiers. During the battle, Godzilla attacked. Hannibal and his men managed to survive, and hid in a ravine where Hannibal found a northern passage through the mountains. Hannibal then had his men boil their wine into vinegar, cover all their dead in tar, and instructed them to catapult the bodies at Godzilla's head, which would distract him long enough for the archers to fire on him while others doused him in vinegar. The resulting explosion both covered Godzilla in snow and broke down the mountain, allowing Hannibal to get to Rome.
