Fantastic Five: Top Five Giant Monsters

monster five

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

This week we’re taking a look at some of our favorite giant monsters and kaiju in comics. Though kaiju are generally more closely associated with the silver screen and its many examples of actors in oversized suits fighting among undersized buildings, comics have an abundance of city stompers to celebrate as well. Hopefully this list will help you settle any and all future kaiju-related arguments.

Gamera is Filled with Meat: Anatomical Charts of Japanese Monsters [Art]


One can't say enough about the disgraceful state of our children's education system, particularly its pronounced contempt for biology and the other life sciences. It's as if we decided as a society to to fill the heads of a generation of kids with only the most useless and asinine facts, figures and images rather than what actually matters: Once, a long time ago, it was really, really important that kids knew what Japanese movie monsters looked like on the inside...
