BONUS REVIEW by JOHN SCHAEFER
Ah, the Golden Age of Godzilla movies is re-introduced to a brand new audience here. Characters of questionable intent inadvertantly land on Monster Island and are greeted by Godzilla, Rodan, King Ghidorah, Batra, and Kumunga (or Speega if you watched the english translated version of these movies back in the day). Mothra is soon on hand and so are the twin singing fairy princesses (Everyone... Motheriiii-ya! Motheriii-ya!) More giant daikaijū fun from IDW.
