GODZILLA will be stomping into theaters this summer, but before you see the latest reinvention of the mega-beast, there will be a prequel graphic novel that delves into the origin of the monster. I was under the impression that what we would be seeing in Gareth Edwards' update of the Toho icon would be humanity's first exposure to the monster, but apparently that is not the case.

GODZILLA: AWAKENING will take readers back over six decades to when humanity first encountered GODZILLA. This brings a new wrinkle to the plot of the film and may add to the theories that GODZILLA will focus on other monsters aside from the big mutant dinosaur.

"In 1954, we awakened something..."

To pave the way for Godzilla's return to the big screen, Legendary Comics proudly presents the official graphic novel Godzilla: Awakening. Today, we are excited to reveal the King of the Monsters in all his glory, as we unveil the cover featuring exclusive artwork by acclaimed Godzilla artist Arthur Adams.

This 80-page story, set decades before the film, is co-written by Max Borenstein (screenwriter of the new Godzilla) and Greg Borenstein.

GODZILLA: Awakening is illustrated by Eric Battle (X-Men, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman), Yvel Guichet (Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero, Superboy Annual, End of Nations), Alan Quah (Rage, The Vampire Diaries, Anywhere) and Lee Loughridge (Batman Adventures, Arkham Asylum: Living Hell, Marvel Zombies Return), and features cover art by Arthur Adams (Godzilla, Fantastic Four, Hulk, Uncanny X-Men).

The graphic novel will hit stores on May 7th, just about two weeks before GODZILLA hits theaters on May 16th. Check out the awesome cover below.

Sick cover

The only complaint about an Art Adams cover is that the best art is over by the time you open it.

Is Art Adams drawing the whole comic, or just the cover?

Not really clear on that

Fans of the Jurrasic Park series. Because every article that's been posted on this site about Jurrasic World has had nothing but positive feedback. That's why I was wondering.

Honestly, it looks like ass. Too futuristic & spacey. Looks like something out of the Jetsons. No prehistoric zoo would believably use such an architectural theme. The first Jurassic Park nailed the believability of a Dinosaur themed park/zoo, with the fossil museum theme.
