Cavalcade Comics

I went small for my first issue of Cavalcade Comics and my new vintage comic throwdown feature. Today, I thought I’d go the opposite way and go BIG for issue #2. WAY big.

Back in the 70s Marvel had the license for both Godzilla and Shogun Warriors comics. Yet, as far as I know, they two never met. Why? Why, Marvel?!  Today, I rectify that gross oversight. Check out my second Vintage Comic Throwdown in Cavalcade Comics #2; Godzilla vs Shogun Warriors.

This has sort of a vintage Pacific Rim vibe, doesn’t it?  I loved the Shogun Warriors cartoons and toys. And some of the later Godzilla movies were balls out wacky awesome.  And it seems fitting that Godzilla himself was marketed under the Shogun Warriors toy banner for his famous fire breathing 19 inch figure.

Like I said, total pop culture synergy.  So, you’re welcome for the awesome epic monster/robot battling.

For those keeping score at home, I mashed up the covers for Marvel’s Godzilla King of the Monsters #8 and Shogun Warriors #8. I may have also pulled in a stray robot from Shogun Warriors #6.
