Yes! It’s true! The Kaiju have been dominating the Kindle and now we are in the number 2 spot! Lets see how long it takes for them to stomp all over the number one spot and rule the historical fiction catagory!

 

10/4/2014
Jack Bottomley of STARBURST Magazine just awarded World War Kaiju 10 out of 10 STARS and gave us a smashing review!! Here is a quote,

…lovers of the genre will be in their element gleefully picking sub-plots and illustrations apart for their references. Some are blatant (Flying insect kaiju Mohdrah for instance) but the better ones are the more subtle references or indeed the sly satirical swipes (there is a whole joke that is clearly referencing Godzooky)… The plot is heavily scientific and yet easily accessible and committingly created for fans, who will be eager for more once that ‘end of book one’ marker appears (and when it does, the plot appears to have reached fever pitch). From the musings on historical events/people to the revisionist narrative and ideology, World War Kaiju feels dizzying in its aspiration and spirit.

Go to STARBURST’s website to read the full review.

Fresh from the Trinity Test Site, Kai-235 crystals used to create a new kaiju. These crystals have been cleaned of exes radiation and are now winging their way to our Kickstarter backers who wanted a piece of history.

WORLD WAR KAIJU!
Atomic monsters are coming to your local store in the form of a graphic novel
that asks, “What if Doctor Strangelove created Godzilla?”

WATCH THE WWK TRAILER: www.worldwarkaiju.com/downloads/

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE!

World War Kaiju, the greatly anticipated giant monster Kickstarter success
is now available in stores!

World War Kaiju is the story of an alternate history, one in which the
atom bomb was never created and the ultimate weapon of mass
destruction is the kaiju—fifty foot tall radioactive beasts spawned
from the mysterious KAI-235 isotope. Follow the journey of one
journalist as he teams up with a retired CIA operative to uncover the
truth about the conspiracy behind the monsters and the men who plan to
use them to dominate the world.

Created and Written by Josh Finney (Titanium Rain, Batman Giantsize 80pg)
Illustrated by Patrick McEvoy (Call of Cthulhu, Fall of Cthulhu, Game of Thrones ccg)
Additional scenes by Michael Colbert (Crazy Mary)

World War Kaiju is a tribute to the kaiju genre in all its forms (both
high and low). The brainchild of sci-fi author Josh Finney, WWK is a
love letter to the golden-age of kaiju cinema. It looks back to an era
when the world loved atomic monsters, but feared the atomic bomb, and
warps history in ways that only men in rubber suits can.
