Legendary Pictures is bringing Godzilla back to life on the big screen in May, but their comic book division is also getting in on the resurrection.
An officiial prequel to the film, Godzilla: Awakening is an 80-page story that takes place decades prior to the movie. Max Borenstein, screenwriter of the movie, co-wrote the book with Greg Borenstein (we think they're related).
The May 7, 2014 release has a murderer's row of artists working on it, as well, beyond the Arthur Adams cover. Inside, readers will find art from Eric Battle (X-Men, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman), Yvel Guichet (Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero, Superboy Annual, End of Nations), Alan Quah (Rage, The Vampire Diaries, Anywhere) and Lee Loughridge (Batman Adventures, Arkham Asylum: Living Hell, Marvel Zombies Return).
Godzilla the film comes to theaters a little more than a week later, on May 16, 2014.
