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 (occasionally) his mother Ogra against various monsters, aliens, and human armies.

The comic book had a three-issue sequel miniseries entitled Gorgo's Revenge, which was changed to The Return of Gorgo after issue #1. Every issue of Gorgo was written by Joe Gill. Steve Ditko, the co-creator of Spider-Man and Doctor Strange, illustrated eight of the 23 issues (#1-3, 11, and 13-16).
