"They Had Nothing Left to Lose but Each Other" is the sixth issue of IDW Publishing's Godzilla. It was published on October 31, 2012.


Having tasted serious defeat-and having been branded outlaws by the world's governments - Boxer and his crew scramble to catch up to Godzilla before he destroys Seattle! There's just one major obstacle in the way...Mothra!


After playing around with Godzilla's DNA sample, Asuka Hikari found a way to possibly lure monsters to wherever they're led to by abusing their chemical attraction to members of their own species. Asuka excitedly proclaimed this could be used to lure the monsters to uninhabited locations to study them and that the Monster Kill Crew could be told to stop their activities as a result. Dr. Pohl was pleased with this, and informed Asuka that they could begin carrying out tests as the Monster Kill Crew had been arrested.

Boxer's crew was being held at an undisclosed location by a private security team paid by Mrs. Murakami, mother of the girl that died under Boxer's watch in Washington. However, not long after being placed in there, they managed to escape. They found out that Mothra was going located in between them and Godzilla, and that Mothra had two small fairies, the Shobijin, who were going to speak for her at the United Nations soon. Boxer decided it was needed to have Harrison and Urv borrow some planes as Claire and Boxer drove toward Mothra. Meanwhile at the U.N., the Shobijin explained that things right now were nowhere near as bad as they were going to get. Boxer and Claire continued to drive and encountered Mothra, who was trying to keep them from approaching with purple lightning-like bolts. One of the bolts hit Claire and she fell out of the van and received an eerie vision of the future with three monsters. At the same time, Urv and Harrison made it into the United Nations conference with the fairies and told them to make Mothra leave California. The Shobijin do so but not before saying a handful of cryptic phrases. Claire claims that she is now starting to understand the situation. Godzilla makes landfall in Seattle after a run-in with Mothra earlier, destroying the Space Needle. That's when Claire realizes that they might be doing something wrong.

  • This issue marks the first full appearance of Gigan in an IDW comic. Gigan's previous IDW comic appearances had been limited to cover appearances in both Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters and Godzilla: Gangsters & Goliaths, and a partial cameo in which only his arm was visible in Godzilla: Legends #1.
  • This is the only issue of the series not illustrated by Simon Gane. Gane was initially listed as the artist for the issue in the original solicitation, but was replaced at a later date and returned for the remaining issues.
