Godzilla in Hell (ゴジラ IN HELL (イン・ヘル),   Gojira in Heru) is a five-issue comic book miniseries from IDW Publishing, published from July to November 2015. Each issue featured a different creative team, with James Stokoe, Matt Frank, Bob Eggleton, and Dave Wachter each working on an issue. The series chronicles Godzilla's descent into and eventual escape from Hell, where he encounters demonic versions of his past foes as well as terrifying new enemies.

The series was republished in English as part of the Godzilla: Unnatural Disasters trade paperback in May 2021, along with Godzilla: Legends and Godzilla: Rage Across Time; while a Japanese translation was published by Phase Six that same month. Saldapress published a translation of the series as an oversized hardcover in Italy in April 2021.

Trivia

  • It is unknown if the issues of this series are intended to share continuity, as several discrepancies arise between them. For example, King Ghidorah is identified as "the reason [Godzilla] was brought into this horrific netherworld" in the second issue, indicating that King Ghidorah was responsible for Godzilla's death. However, the subsequent issue clearly depicts SpaceGodzilla as the cause of Godzilla's descent into Hell. Additionally, the third issue also features the total destruction of Earth, yet the final issue shows Godzilla emerging from the ocean as he returns to the world of the living.
  • This series was a part of the Five Featured Firsts program, which launched a brand new title each week in July.
  • The first issue of Godzilla in Hell was given an EC Comics Month variant cover by Jeff Zornow as a part of EC Cover Month, as well as exclusive variants for the San Diego Comic-Con and Comics Dungeon by James Stokoe and Sara Richard, respectively.
