Hero With a Thousand Faces
Tumblr media
Hey y’all! Remember that post with the Tyannosaurus and its Pop Culture legacy? And how I did it with two more prehistoric creatures (and Sid)? Welp... here’s the latest version, and by far, the biggest of ‘em all.
The motif here is actually simple, from the drawings of a Paleolithic couple (the man’s a Neanderthal, and the lady’s a regular ol’ Homo Sapiens), they, without realizing it, inspired literal thousands upon thousands of years of storytelling, and of the many, MANY concepts of the “hero” figure throughout all of human history.
Guess which ones are which!
Previously:
Triceratops
Pteranodon
Tyrannosaurus
Sid and the Giant Sloths

One of my favorite bits of the Godzilla franchise ever is those 80s and 90s Konica wall calendars (look them up, they’re super cute) and I wanted to try and adapt that style to scenes from each issue of Godzilla vs MMPR!!  I’ve been working on this project ever since the series started and now that it’s finally finished, you get to see the whole set!!

Godzilla having himself a grand ole time in Shinjuku, from The Return of Godzilla (1984).
I remember vividly touring Toho Studios in 2015.  I met the late Teruyoshi Nakano, the special effects director for the film, who proudly described the filming of Godzilla’s rampage through Tokyo.
Nakano-san was grinning ear-to-ear as he joyously and animatedly demonstrated - on the exact stage where filming took place - where his staff had erected and destroyed buildings, how pyrotechnics were placed, how the Super-X was flown on wires, and a million other details.  It was as he had just filmed the scenes the day before, instead of 31 years earlier.
At the time of the tour Japan was experiencing the worst heat wave in its history (at the time; the record may have been broken since then), where the temperature and the humidity remained in the high 90s for over two weeks.  The temperature inside the stage we were on was well over 100 degrees because it, like 90% of Toho Studios, was not air conditioned.  Yet Nakano-san, who was 79 years old and long retired, seemed unaffected by the heat and moved about like a man a quarter his age.
It was an absolute joy to see Nakano-san so proud and passionate about his work, even decades after it had been completed.  It was even more meaningful to me, because the fruits of that passion brought me endless hours of entertainment, and has been a big part of my life.
Thank you very much, Sensei, and rest in peace knowing your legacy lives on.

STRONG CONTENDER FOR THE BEST COMIC COVER I’VE EVER SEEN:
Tumblr media
Like, separate stories obviously, but to anybody passing this on the shelf, the prospect of Godzilla, the Predator, James Bond and the Xenomorphs all being in the same book should have blown any and all competition out of the water.
And to any passing kids, just IMAGINE what a CROSSOVER this cover implied.

Due to a continuity error (or a remarkable resistance to power breath), Godzilla and the Leviathan aliens both destroy the Supreme Court Building in the Godzilla: The Series episode “Monster Wars - Part 3.″
