This has been solicited, so I can finally upload this- my second cover for IDW's Godzilla range! This one is for their excellent miniseries GANGSTERS & GOLIATHS. The colors are by the talented Josh Perez: [link]
I actually hadn't read the comic (did I mention it's EXCELLENT?) when I pitched this idea- so I was just going by the title and the general description of the series as "Godzilla and Mothra vs. the Yakuza". "Sounds like a short fight", I thought. So I ran with that and did this image of some Yakuzas about to throw down with the G-Man John Woo style.
I don't think it quite came through in the end, but I kinda modeled the boss at the sushi bar on Roy Orbison. And he's eating shrimp, which I had a special hatred for at the time (having just come back from two weeks in Vietnam, where they serve shrimp in just about everything).
