Godzilla: War for Humanity #2 is a comic book from IDW Publishing. It was published on September 27, 2023.[1][2]

Description

The menace of Zoospora spreads! The new monster on the block is going after Anguirus and the only hope against either is a robot called MOGUERA! The only hope, that is, unless Drs. Honda and Wiggum can find out any information about this new threat from…the Voice! And where is Godzilla?![1][2]

Plot

Anguirus treks through Madagascar, part of his usual migratory route. When he enters the sea, Zoospora ambushes him, wrapping him in tentacles. Anguirus quickly frees himself by curling into a ball. Phazon Fullchech excitedly orders MOGUERA's pilots into action. Dr. Yuko Honda and Dr. Johnny Wiggum pick up Yuko's daughter Samantha at a San Francisco airport. She reports a miserable stay with her grandmother just before Wiggum learns of the battle in Madagascar.

Anguirus tears off Zoospora's arm, but it quickly regenerates and holds his mouth open, allowing the fungus monster to spit gunk into it. Yuko ponders Zoospora's unusually hostile behavior, which combined with its obvious strength could make it "the most dangerous kaiju on Earth." She believes MOGUERA will fail in its mission, though she doesn't know how to convince Godzilla to join the fight against Zoospora instead. Wiggum recalls an episode of Talking to Kaiju in which host Seymour Finnegan claimed to have encountered a blob inside a cave in Mongolia whose connection with the Earth allowed it to telepathically communicate with kaiju. Despite Samantha's protests, Yuko declares they're all going to Mongolia.

The aerial Star Falcon and subterranean Land MOGUERA assault Zoospora, then combine into the bipedal MOGUERA. The robot charges up its chest laser, but Anguirus attacks it just as it fires, causing the blast to miss Zoospora. Anguirus drenches MOGUERA with the same gunk as Zoospora, only to be thrown aside by the larger monster, who resumes the disgusting onslaught itself. It soon breaches the cockpit as the pilots scream in terror. After Yuko, Wiggum, and Samantha land in Mongolia, Yuko promises to her mother that Samantha will be back in school by Monday, but for now her work takes precedence. She reflects on her mother's dismissal of her obsession with kaiju, which has remained consistent no matter how respected she becomes in the field. Samantha relays updates from Madagascar: after Anguirus and Zoospora defeated MOGUERA, it returned to the task force headquarters, where its pilots turned on Fullchech and Colonel Elise Guerrero. Anguirus, meanwhile, is rampaging through Antananarivo.

A local guide recommended by Finnegan leads them to the blob, known to locals as "the Talking Cave." Yuko asks the creature why Godzilla has not left Monster Island to confront Zoospora; it responds that Godzilla views Zoospora as a means to cleanse the planet of humanity and their destructive ways. Yuko departs with tears in her eyes. Suddenly, Mothra's priestesses, the Shobijin, appear in the palms of her hands. They suggest that the Cave cannot be trusted; Mothra has informed them that Godzilla is merely staying put on Monster Island to keep Minilla safe from Zoospora. Mothra flies to Monster Island and brutally tries to enlist Godzilla's help, shooting him in the back of the head with her antennae lasers and dragging him towards the ocean as a terrified Minilla watches. He leaves her wing smoking with a blast of atomic breath, then fires another ray, with Minilla joining in with his smoke rings.
