2014 is the 60th Anniversary of Godzilla and Hollywood is celebrating by treating us to a brand new entry in the film series! I’m very excited about it!
But I think us fans should also do something for the big event! So I suggest making a zine of comics and art based around the King of Monsters.
Submissions can be anything as long as they are somehow related to the 30 Godzilla films, video games, comics, books, tv shows and movies set in the shared Toho universe (Mothra, Rodan, etc).
I love all kaiju but this zine is strictly about Godzilla and his universe. Maybe one day I’ll do a more general zine where we can have artwork of Gamera, Super Sentai and Ultraman… but for now, we’re sticking with Big G.
The deadline for entries is APRIL 1ST! This allows me to get the zine printed and ready in time for May and the release of the new film! The zine will be printed and sold at conventions and I’ll try and get all the included collaborators some money back - however, initially all profit from the zine will be used to make back the printing cost.
This is a curated zine meaning not all entries will be included. I will be deciding one which entries are included and the reason will always be for the benefit of the zine and its aesthetics. All artistic abilities are allowed but depending on how popular this gets, I will be a little bit of a bastard and have to be picky. I’ve done enough projects where entires have been super open to know that it reeeeeally doesn’t work.
