"Dramatization" is the first issue of Dark Horse's Godzilla. It was originally published on June 1, 1995,[1] and republished on September 2, 1998, as Dark Horse Classics: Godzilla: King of the Monsters #3.


This issue originally was sold for $2.50.[1] The comic was reprinted in the Godzilla: Age of Monsters collection.


The waters off the North American coast are being plagued by strange occurrences. Irradiated fish are floating to the surface while tankers and freight ships are sinking to the ocean floor, taking their crew to a watery grave. An entire continent holds its breath as they search for the cause to these unnatural disasters, and an entire continent will scream in fear as the answer rises from the depths, howling his battle cry of death.[1]


Take' of G-Force is a guest on Kate Koshiro's "Giant Eye" news program discussing Godzilla and rumors of his whereabouts. Godzilla has not been seen since Professor Noriko Yoshiwara poisoned him 10 months ago. All of that changes when Godzilla appears on the coast of British Columbia, still bleeding profusely from Yoshiwara's toxin.

Kino sets out in a VTOL plane to fetch Take' and attempt to use a new sonic lure to subdue Godzilla. Kate Koshiro overhears Kino and Take' discussing Godzilla's return and hurriedly gathers her crew together to get the story. Back at G-Force headquarters, Dr. Kagaku convinces Colonel Cameron to hold his forces back and let G-Force give the beacon a try. Canadian warplanes briefly engage the stricken Godzilla before the VTOL arrives on the scene. The beacon seems to work at first, but then it shorts out, enraging Godzilla further. A blast of radioactive flame downs the aircraft, the beacon falling into the forest. Take' and Kino survive the crash and are rescued by Kate's news helicopter. They recover the beacon and Kino determines that it was sabotaged.

Canadian military forces battle Godzilla until Cybersaur, the United Nation's anti-Godzilla robot, arrives.
