Cloverfield manga online

Jan. 16, 2008by: Mike Sampson

In what I can assure you will be the last CLOVERFIELD post before the movie opens this Friday, I bring you news today of a CLOVERFIELD manga prequel. To help create some buzz for this little movie he's making, JJ Abrams commissioned Kadokawa Shoten Publishing, one of the biggest manga publishers in Japan to create a CLOVERFIELD manga, which has been titled "Kishen." The entire first issue is online and you can check it out by heading here and clicking the blueish button to the top that says "Open." It would presume to tell the tale of what and how the monster came to be, odd since that has been one of the primary compliments of the movie - that it kept the beast's origins a secret. While the manga was drawn by Kadokawa artists, it was written by Bad Roboters like Dave Baronoff (Associate Producer on CLOVERFIELD) and produced by Abrams and producing partner Bryan Burk. For those of you who are sick of all the CLOVERFIELD hype, just remember there's only two short days until the movie (yes, the actual movie!) arrives in theaters. For those of you who can't get enough, get to work on your Japanese translation!

Extra Tidbit: Doesn't the CLOVERFIELD monster need a nickname? Let's come up with something below to call our big buddy.

I believe that INGMAR should suffice. It's terrifying to think a giant Ingmar could destroy an entire city. "I couldn't help it; it just popped in there."

Or alternatively...

'Choloe'... it could easily be a female and female monsters are nastier than males, just look at the dinos in Jurassic Park and Aliens. :D

Why bother naming it?

The Cloverfield monster should speak for itself, shouldn't it?


That said, if it simply MUST be named...let's go with Steve.

To name a beast...

Let's call it...Flower. I know, I know, very simplistic.
But it works on so many levels. Not sure which ones.

Agreed.

Steve. It has to be Steve.

I'm avoiding the manga, as I'm really excited for once to see a movie I know almost nothing about ahead of time.

They call him....Tim.

P.S. I'm neutral on this because I hate manga and anime.
