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

I've noticed similarities to Godzilla and Cthulhu. Both are brought out by mankind's desire for more knowledge and power, both are worshiped by a sacrificial race of people(see Odo Island), both monsters embody powers that we humans can't understand. I think in order to make a good Godzilla story, you need to not only create human drama brought about by nuclear weapons, but also understand HP Lovecraft's style of horror. I don't think they did that in the original Gojira, but the film felt pretty similar to something Lovecraft would write about if he lived during the atomic age.

It'll always be Godzilla. Cthulhu is too weaker than Godzilla.

*Godzilla holds Cthulhu's mouth open, Atomic Breath whirring* *FIRES THE FRIGGING ATOMIC BREATH INTO HIS MOUTH WHICH DECAPITATES HIM LIKE THE FEMALE MUTO*

Could you do Godzilla vs. Manda from Naruto?

I think the only safe place to watch this fight would be on the International Space Station...no wait, it's not far enough away. Nice work!

If this were available as a print, I'd buy one to hang in my room.

Godzilla for the win.
Yeah, I'm saying that here and now. Why? Because Cthulhu may represent how we're so small... Godzilla is a different story. Plus, we've never actually seen Cthulhu do battle with anything. Not to mention we don't know if it's psychic abilities work on anything not human.
Plus, Godzilla is king of the monsters.
