"Kingjira," is a Hilarious and Gorgeous One-Shot

I enjoy a lot of publications from Scout Comics and their latest title I had a great time reading is, "Kingjira." A self-contained one-shot about a Godzilla-style Kaiju named Kingjira, this comic follows the terrifying creature as he looks for some pizza. Created, written, and illustrated by Marco Fontanili, the comic is basically wordless and uses little pictograms in speech bubbles to get across what Kingjira is thinking and what the humans trying to go against him are saying.

The art is absolutely gorgeous and Fontanili gives us a fantastically imposing Kaiju who is breathtaking to witness as he rampages through the city in an effort to get some grub. Even without any words the story told is clear, funny, and damn good looking (which I can't say enough). I had so much fun reading, "Kingjira," and would recommend you get it from your local comic establishment or on Scout's website.

5 out of 5 stars.
