Gorgo is a comic book series based on the 1961 British-American giant monster film Gorgo, which ran from 1961 to 1965 with 23 issues. The first issue is an adaptation of the film, while the rest are original stories pitting Gorgo and his mother Ogra against various monsters, aliens, and human armies.

The comic book had a short, three-issue sequel entitled Gorgo's Revenge, which was changed to The Return of Gorgo after its first issue. Every issue of Gorgo was written by Joe Gill. Steve Ditko, the co-creator of Spider-Man and Doctor Strange, illustrated eight issues (1-3, 11, and 13-16).

There was also going to be a team up with Charlton's military team, The Fightin' Five. This did eventually see print as the last issue of their comic,as the story had already been completed, but the art was modified to remove Gorgo's ears and any mention of his name, as Charlton's rights to the creature had expired by then.

Funny that this could technically be a "list of Gorgo monsters" page.

I find it interesting how Gorgo's appearance seems to slightly change every cover
