Godzilla Vs. Cthulhu by PaulHanley Godzilla Vs. Cthulhu by PaulHanley
Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn! Nar Gojira kikassen o'uta bed'den, o'snappa!"

Translation: "In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming. And then Godzilla woke him up, and boy is he pissed."

No, not an IDW cover this time. This is a special piece for the 100th issue of G-FAN Magazine (yes, I broke my "no fanzine" policy again- my bud Matt Frank asked and it was the 100th issue- sue me). Check out G-FAN here: [link]

The idea for this has been kicking around for a while, ever since I saw a gag on Facebook where someone took the poster art for GODZILLA VS. THE THING (which features G fighting off a mass of green tentacles- which is odd, b/c his enemy in the actual movie was Mothra) and replaced the title with "GODZILLA VS. CTHULHU". So that got me thinking how that might actually look if done "properly"- so here's 'Zilla throwing down with everybody's favorite Great Old One off the coast of Innsmouth.

I like to think the guy on the cliff is played by Jeffrey Combs. One guess what book he's holding. :D

Great job! Another good one would be Godzilla vs. a giant version of John Carpenter's Thing.

Nerd mode on

Put money on tentacle guy... fat chance
Im judging this objectively

Godzilla has brute strength

Cthulhu in other hand has brute strength. But he is not a brainless monster
He is intelligent, proven by his knowledge of magic and manipulation towards mortal
Cthulhu also has more manuever, wings and tentacle, and perhaps even summons

Oh. And if you said size does not matter. Its the biggest bullshit i ever had

godzilla gone insane.  that's exactly what the earth needs.  If you need me, I'll be moving to mars.
Cthulu might be wise to do the same.  maybe

What a fantastic concept, and executed to perfection. If this were a movie poster, it would DEFINITELY get me into the flick!
