My Thoughts: Godzilla in Hell

An interesting concept to be sure, but like Cataclysm I feel Godzilla in Hell didn't quite reach its full potential. For one, I would've liked to see Goji encounter more situations and characters synonymous with hell, but these are often pushed aside for yet more brawls against the usual Godzilla enemies such as King Ghidorah. The battles themselves, however, are pretty entertaining.

One thing I did like was the fact that a different artist illustrated each installment, and utilized a different Godzilla design for each. I would've liked to see this used in Half-Century War. I also found myself liking the final issue, which was pretty deep stuff for a character usually celebrated for his power and savagery.

Overall, Godzilla in Hell didn't quite stack up to my expectations, but the final product is still worth a read, whether it's for the art, the monster brawls or its mild philosophical implications.
