Legendary Comics’ New Graphic Novel Godzilla: Aftershock Now on Sale in Comic Stores and Online
Thrilling companion prequel to upcoming summer blockbuster Godzilla: King of the Monsters pits the iconic Titan against a mythic new adversary
LOS ANGELES, May 21, 2019 – Fans eagerly awaiting Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ summer’s big-screen blockbuster Godzilla: King of the Monsters, set to hit theaters worldwide on May 31, can get a sneak peek at the monstrous action with Legendary Comics’ thrilling companion graphic novel GODZILLA: AFTERSHOCK, now on sale in comic stores and online. Continuing the story of 2014’s Godzilla after the catastrophic events in San Francisco, the King of the Monsters finds himself once again threatened as a terrifying new foe rises from the depths of the earth, unleashing a series of devastating earthquakes and driven by an unstoppable primal instinct that will test the King of Monsters like never before. Follow Facebook.com/LegendaryComics for the latest news and updates.
“Part of the fun of working on a Godzilla project is that its massive scale demands that it be a collaboration with talented artists and AFTERSHOCK is no exception,” said Godzilla: King of the Monsters director Michael Dougherty. “Arvid Nelson and Drew Edward Johnson have created a story that is just as epic and compelling as Godzilla’s big screen adventures. So much so that it sometimes feels like you’re flipping through the storyboards of a movie just waiting to be shot.”
“Arvid and Drew have created a riveting prequel that adds to the Monsterverse while acting as a story bridge between the two Godzilla films,” said Robert Napton, Senior Vice President of Legendary Comics.
Written by Arvid Nelson, with art by Drew Edward Johnson, Godzilla: Aftershock introduces characters from the upcoming movie and invites readers to delve further into the activities of cryptozoological agency Monarch. The brilliant and driven Monarch operative Dr. Emma Russell races to stop the threat as clues emerge to reveal a terrible secret—a tragedy, of apocalyptic proportions from the distant past that changed the course of human history, is returning to threaten it once more. A shadowy figure stalks Emma’s every move as she travels the globe to uncover secrets, while Godzilla clashes in an ancient rivalry as old as the Earth itself.
Writer Arvid Nelson was raised by a pack of wild Nintendo cartridges in the wilderness of southern Connecticut. He worked on several films before deciding to focus on graphic novels. Since then he's written over a dozen titles, including two original series—Rex Mundi, set in 1930s Europe where magic is real and the Catholic Church never lost its grip on power, and Zero Killer, an "alternate present" where the United States never dropped Atom bombs on Japan. He's worked for DC Comics, Marvel Comics, and Dark Horse Comics, to name a few. Arvid lives in Northampton, Massachusetts with a loving wife, a wonderful son, and a large television. Visit him online at arvidland.com.
Artist Drew Edward Johnson started drawing comic books in 1995 with Dark Horse Comics'/Lucasfilm's Star Wars X-Wing: Rogue Squadron. His work has since been published by DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Top Cow, DDP, and Wildstorm. Drew is best known for his work on DC Comics' Wonder Woman #195-210, #211, and #214. Other ongoing series work has included DC Comics' Supergirl, and Wildstorm's The Authority. Over the course of his career, Johnson has been a member of Macon, GA's Jolly Roger Studio; Macon, GA's Studio Phoenix, which he co-founded with Ray Snyder and Dan Jolley; and Portland, OR's Mercury Studio, which is now known as Periscope Studio. These days, Drew lives in Burbank, CA with his wife, Animator/Director Karen Carnegie Johnson, their children Cole and Quinn and a really dumb cat named Lucy.
