"You Don't Assign Him a Giant Monster, You Just Turn Him Loose" is the fourth issue of IDW Publishing's Godzilla. It was published on August 29, 2012.


Unable to take down Titanosaurus on their own, Boxer and the Monster Kill Crew decide to fight monster with monster! After luring Rodan to the battlefield, the Crew is hoping for a two-for-one score. But in a world of kaiju, things seldom go as planned! Plus, the Crew starts to ask the big question: Why are the monsters reappearing now? They might not like the answer!


Originally showing up to Tokyo to take down Titanosaurus, the Monster Kill Crew is surprised to also find Rodan there as well. Boxer uses the Headache Beam against Rodan, but Rodan responds by creating a powerful gust with his winds which hurl the Monster Kill Crew's helicopter into a building. Boxer, seeing the situation unfold, thinks of a plan to bring down both Titanosaurus and Rodan by making them fight each other and exhaust one another before knocking them out. Titanosaurus seems unaffected by the headache beam, however Rodan is successfully made to bump into Titanosaurus and the two start to fight. Soon, Urv finished a massive load of powerful explosions and after tying them to parachutes, dropped them onto the monsters. The resulting explosions managed to incapacitate Titanosaurus, however Rodan escaped once again. Walking out of the building they had crashed in, Claire questions where it was that the governments of the world placed the monsters that they took down.

Later, Titanosaurus was being transported to the Hunt Atoll in the South Pacific Ocean, otherwise known as Monster Island. There, two men were discussing that they had appropriated a Headache Beam and modified it to make the monsters on the island tame and that nations were looking to make back money they had to give to Boxer, and that weaponized monsters would be priceless.

Meanwhile in San Diego, California, Godzilla was wreaking havoc. Ms. Murakami, mother of the girl that died under Boxer's care not long ago, was aware that the Monster Kill Crew would be arriving soon and was looking to meet Boxer to get an explanation out of him regarding her daughter's death. Boxer and the others arrived. Claire explained that it was very unlikely that the Headache Beam would work against Godzilla as it didn't work on Titanosaurus. Boxer then said that he didn't care about the money he received and that its purpose was to buy more explosives and materials to fight and kill Godzilla, and that they wouldn't stop until Godzilla was dead.

  • After Titanosaurus is defeated by the Monster Kill Crew, the following typo can be seen: "At least we'd immobilized the dinosaur—the monster Toyko had hired us to deal with."
