Limited edition Kill All Monsters prints debut at Image Expo

This weekend is the Image Expo and Jason will be there with these nifty, extremely limited edition Kill All Monsters prints. There will also be a color version (I’ll show you that tomorrow), but this is not just a black-and-white print of a color file. Jason personally toned and gray-scaled these, so there are quite a few differences between the two versions.

In addition to matching Jason’s black-and-white work on the actual comic, these are cool because he’s only printing 50 of them. If you’ll be at the Expo, you can find Jason at the New Reliable Press table (#306), which is also the home of Kill All Monsters‘ awesome letterer, Ed Brisson.

Konga: the comic

This is not going to end well.

Go Go Godzilla has the full Konga story from Fantastic Giants #1 and if you’ve seen the movie, there are some interesting changes. In the film, Michael Gough (Alfred from the ’90s Batman films) plays Dr. Charles Decker, a despicable man who uses his giant ape to kill anyone who crosses him, including the boyfriend of a college student Decker has a crush one. Because comics were for kids in 1966, that kind of immoral protagonist wasn’t going to fly, so they changed the doc into a good guy who’s not aware that his fleeting thoughts of violence are causing the ape’s murder spree via “thought transference.”

In the positive column though, the comic shows some awesome details from Decker’s time in Africa where he discovered the giant natives and plants that led to his inventing the growth serum.
