Beware! Beach Monsters!

Tony Isabella‘s love for “Uncle Godzilla” isn’t exactly a secret.

For years Tony has been proclaiming himself “the pastor of the First Church of Godzilla.

Kinky? Sure. But Tony assures me that I have nothing to worry about. (No virgins, giant moths or three-headed dragons were sacrificed in the making of today’s comic.)

I appreciate Tony’s passion for giant, god-like creatures. So expect more Gorgo comics to pop up here—occasionally—in the future.

Will they be religious experiences? I don’t know. But I’m sure they’ll be funny.

Now let us prey!

Art by Steve Ditko from the story “Goro’s Triumph!” in Gorgo #11, Feb. 1963.
