Godzilla destroys Overland Park comics shop

Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters #1
Elite Comics is smashed by Godzilla on an exclusive variant cover of Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters #1, published by IDW.

The green, scaly claws of Godzilla smashed Elite Comics in Overland Park Wednesday – at least on the exclusive variant cover of Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters #1.

The new comic book, published by IDW, has 80 cover versions, including one featuring Overland Park comics shop Elite Comic. That version is available exclusively from Elite, which is located at 11842 Quivera Road.

The comic book features Godzilla and other classic monsters like Mothra. According to IDW’s solicitation: “The King of the Monsters rises again, and for the first time in comics, he’s bringing lots of other beloved Toho monsters with him in one destructive saga”

The comic book is drawn by Kansas City convention regular Phil Hester and inked by Omaha resident Bruce McCorkindale.
