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 think the only safe place to watch this fight would be on the International Space 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.

Cthulu does have amazing regenerative properties, and Lovecraft did say nuking it would only wound it, and mean when he came back he would be radioactive.

However, the newest Godzilla took a nuke to the face and it didn't seem to even of left a scratch on him, and comes with a lot more offensive powers besides "rabid insanity."

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

Where on Earth did you come to the conclusion that Godzilla's brainless? Not only is he far from that, Godzilla has won quite a few of his battles by thinking strategically, and outwitting his enemies.

Trust me, Big G is not even close to a brainless monster either. His brute strength alone is enough to take down most enemies, though this match would be a close call.
