Kodoja: Terror Mountain Showdown
I like interpersonal melodrama and physical conflict between people possessing fantastical powers and wearing unusual costumes as much as the next guy, even here on ROBOT 6 at Comic Book Resources, where pretty much everyone likes such things a whole lot.
As fond as I am of the superhero genre, however, there’s room in my heart for other genres, like that of Giant Monsters Wrecking Stuff. Obviously, there are many more superheroes comics than giant-monster comics, as comics are the superhero’s home medium, and the giant monster belongs first and foremost to film. That said, there are still a goodly amount of giant-monster comics, many of which are good giant-monster comics.
Here’s one, for example: Kodoja Terror Mountain Showdown #1.
Kodoja is a super-slick, self-published, black-and-white giant-monster comic by writer Keith Foster and artist Rory Smith. The title character is the monster, a 15-story-tall man-made “mondroid” (as one character calls it, only to be told, “Technically, the correct term is ‘DNA Droid’”) that was apparently built by the United States military and then decommissioned for being a little too good at destroying things.
