I have an extremely dilettante interest in history, and one of the things I've noticed is that historians are every bit as quick to jump on the "who would win in a fight" train as comics fans. Seriously, you can't get more than five minutes into a conversation with someone who knows a lot about the ancient world without stumbling into a serious consideration of whether Julius Caesar and the Roman phalanx could have a chance against Genghis Khan or whatever. It happens constantly.

And yet, they've never really gotten around to the real question that I think we all want answered: What would've happened in the Second Punic War if Hannibal's crossing of the Alps had been stopped by Godzilla?

Fortunately, Ulises Farinas, Erik Freitas, Pablo Tunica, and Chris Mowry are here to finally settle things once and for all with Godzilla: Rage Across Time #4, in which the Carthaginian forces run across the King of All Monsters. Check out a preview below!

Hopefully, this will lead to an alternate timeline where one of the defining elements of Western Civilization was preparing for an attack by giant radioactive sea monsters who just returned from actual Biblical hell. That'd spice up history class a little.
