Godzilla Rivals: Vs. Battra is the fourth installment of the IDW Publishing one-shot comic series Godzilla Rivals. It was released on August 3, 2022.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

In a quiet beachside town ravaged by constant sewage spillages and toxic waste dumps, something is stirring. Deep under the rolling hills that surround Hackney-on-Sea, Battra is awakening, driven by a single goal: to destroy mankind and save planet Earth. The only one who can stop him is Godzilla, but he hasn't been seen in decades and has never ventured to the cold shores of the English coast... until now. Robbie runs a small bookshop, but her real passion is monsters. She's spent years researching the myth of Godzilla and his fearsome foes, and now that hypothetical experience is about to become a life-saving tool. Can Robbie locate Godzilla? Will Godzilla alone be enough to defeat Battra? Is Battra really wrong? And will the goddess Mothra make an appearance?

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This comic's original A cover featured a different logo than all previous installments of Godzilla Rivals; however, it was later changed to the series' normal logo.
  • This comic was originally planned to be the fifth in the Godzilla Rivals series, set for a June 29, 2022 release. However, Godzilla Rivals: Vs. Gigan was later moved to that date, resulting in Vs. Battra being indefinitely delayed until some retailers finally reported that it had been set for August 3. Vs. Gigan was eventually delayed a second time to August 31, and then again to October 23, making Vs. Battra the fourth issue.[2]
  • A cover for Godzilla Rivals: Vs. Battra marketing it under the series title "Godzilla Rivals II" was created and surfaced through certain online outlets, but was later changed back to simply Godzilla Rivals.
  • While other kaiju have attacked the United Kingdom in Godzilla media since, Godzilla Rivals: Vs. Battra marks the first time Godzilla himself has visited the UK outside of video games since the Godzilla: The Series episode "DeadLoch" in 1999.
  • This comic ends with an advertisement for the next entry in the series, Godzilla Rivals: Vs. Gigan.
