Honnêtement, il s'agit selon moi à ce jour du comics le plus réussi sur Godzilla. Et pour cause, il a été écrit par le formidable James Stokoe, auteur notamment de l'incroyable Orc Stain. On avait donc beaucoup à attendre de son approche du célèbre dinosaure atomique...et on n'est pas déçu. C'est un ouvrage remarquable.

Le récit suit les pérégrinations de deux soldats japonais, acharnés à traquer le monstre responsable de la destruction d'une grande partie de leur monde. Les deux hommes démarrent jeunes soldats, propulsés héros par le fait d'avoir survécu à l'attaque du Big G et même d'avoir courageusement réussi à l'attirer hors des zones civiles. Par la suite, ils évoluent en vétérans, membres d'un groupe de traque de kaijus, puis deviennent peu à peu des has been, un peu en dehors du temps, face aux nouvelles recrues pilotes de mechas. Et oui, le monde change, même dans l'univers des monstres géants ^^.

Ce qui est intéressant dans ce comics, c'est de voir comment la présence de Godzilla affecte l'Histoire. On apprend vers le début que les deux blocs s'allient dans les années 50 pour faire face à la menace, Godzilla débarque en pleine guerre du Vietnam, perturbant de beaucoup les agissements militaires américains, et l'avancée des hautes technologies est clairement orientée dans le but de détruire le monstre atomique. On voit que les kaijus sont la source d'un trafic important parmi les groupes criminels, touche de réalisme assez bien vue.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Absolutely Incredible Kaiju Art & Story - A Godzilla Masterpiece 23 mai 2013
Par S. Rudge - Publié sur Amazon.com
There really are not enough superlatives to express how Godzilla fans will feel about this amazing comic. Anyone familiar with James Stokoe's work on the impossible-to-find comic Orc Stain already have some idea of what they can expect from this exceptional and innovative creator. Stokoe's drawing style is reminiscent of a hyper-kinetic and intensely detailed Ralph Bakshi crossbred with characterizations of a Hayao Miyazaki nightmare enhanced by the earth tone coloring of a divinely rendered dawn (how's that for superlative?). The Godzilla of Stokoe's tale is a savage, rampaging monster whose dead white eyes betray the ruthlessly random nature of the destruction he causes. His long, jagged dorsal spikes glow with barely contained nuclear fire soon to be mercilessly unleashed in lethal blasts of atomic breath.

Stokoe's story follows Ota Murakami who as a young soldier faces off against Godzilla in one of the monster's first landfalls. After barely surviving the attack he makes Godzilla's complete defeat his life's goal. Again and again over a period of 50 years Murakami challenges the unbeatable force of nature that is Godzilla. As Murakami gets older his weapons improve and he becomes a formidable foe for the monster, yet the Kaiju world is not so easily divided into opposing forces of good and evil. All of the great monsters including Mothra, Ghidorah, and Gigan (with many more) make appearances with differing degrees of antagonism or benevolence. Always Godzilla remains, year after year, the undisputed King of the Monsters and the ultimate life or death challenge of Murakami.

The format of the graphic novel allows so many exciting things to happen which would be impossible to portray in a movie. Godzilla circles the globe bringing massive destruction to everything he sees. In one fantastic sequence Godzilla even roars into the Vietnam conflict, proving once again that there are far greater things to fear than other men.

There have been several great comics (and many not so great) starring Godzilla, perhaps the best being Art Adams work in the early 90's. Comics have even brought together Godzilla and the Avengers during the weird but memorable Marvel run a decade before that, but this book takes the comic version of Gojira to a completely new level. The action is intense and the story is worthy.

In case you haven't guessed yet, I am highly recommending this book and I am claiming it as my favorite comic of the last two years.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Impressive Half-Century of Destruction 31 mai 2013
Par Austin Murphy - Publié sur Amazon.com
I mainly just wanted to add another 5-star review for this GORGEOUS & BREATH-TAKING graphic-novel. This graphic-novel collects the mini-series Godzilla: HCW Issues #1-5 and holy hell it is that good. Let's just say you can buy this just for the artwork alone and it is easily worth the price of admission, but wait... this story gives this book purpose and a memorable narrative, that gives you even more of your money's worth!

The main-character Ota Murakami, also accompanied by friend Kentaro, has a near-death experience with the big-man himself. Dedicating almost a half-century of his life to the terrifying, powerful, legendary, Radiating-Breathing-Lizard, known as GODZILLA. Ota's perspective changes throughout the many years of his life and experiences with Godzilla.

The story holds your interest, until suddenly the first other monster appears, which I will admit gave me a surprising jolt of enthusiasm. I wish I could have some of these pages as posters. A whole cast of monsters make appearances, but due to it being a mini-series, some of your favorite monsters can't receive a large amount of pages. That's my only complaint and I wish the story and battles could of been expanded a bit more. The 124 pages you do get are extremely impressive though. I'll spoil the monsters at the bottom of this review, but it is was so amazingly cool and surprising to see each one pop-up on the page.

I felt like a 5 year-old kid again reading this, watching all the Godzilla films on VHS. Highly recommended for all Godzilla fans, or if you want to see James Stokoe write and draw a incredible mini-series. This graphic-novel does the King of Monsters proud and I'm seriously considering buying a copy for a friend. Oh and I'll mention the great-art again. 5/5


Anguirus, Megalon, Rodan, Mothra, Battra, Ebirah (Sea-Monster), Kumonga (Spiga), Hedorah (Smog-Monster), Mechagodzilla II, Space-Godzilla, Kiryu (Mechagodzilla III), Gigan and King-Ghidorah

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Best IDW Godzilla Comic to Date 11 décembre 2013
Par Grimlock - Publié sur Amazon.com
IDW comics' tend to be hit-or-miss, depending on who is writing or illustrating. Having read the first TPB of Kingdom of Monsters, I was disappointed on both fronts. However, Half Century War is probably the best Godzilla comic they've released yet, and if you have to pick one to read, let this be it. James Stokoe's art is gorgeous and pure detailed eye-candy. The story follows a couple of soldiers and how they spend their lives working with people to track down Godzilla as other kaiju are introduced. It's a cool take on Godzilla and would make a pretty great movie if they were to make it one. It's definitely recommended if you're wanting to read a good Godzilla comic with some really great artwork.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Seems like there should be more... 31 octobre 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The idea behind the story is a great one: follow a single person through the decades as he encounters Godzilla repeatedly, showing how he changes and how the world changes around him. I think where the story slips is trying to ret-con reasons for Godzilla's (and other monsters') attacks over the years from the movies by tying them all into a giant conspiracy. It's interesting but ultimately not satisfying. It feels like there's not enough space in the series to really do justice to the immense span of time the story covers. Each episode feels shallow and a bit rushed so they can get onto the next episode.

The artwork is wonderful, though. Nicely bold and exciting ink saves the book and earns a recommendation with the caveat that the story is original but slight.

Godzilla The Half Century War
Written by James Stokoe

This Godzilla comic is the best in my opinion for a Godzilla comic it has a great story really good art work and much better then Kingdom of Monsters, Godzilla Legends, and Gangsters and Goliaths. This comic stomps on the comics that came before it.
The story details the journey of Lieutenant Ota Murakami, a soldier on the front lines of the war against Godzilla and other kaiju over 50 years, with the starting point being Godzilla's first appearance in 1954. The story then encompasses the years of the war with different locations turning into battle zones, each location seemingly more brutal than the last. The toll it takes on Murakamai become present as he struggles to understand the conflict between humanity and the kaiju that nearly consumes his entire life but I’ll be looking through each issue differently.

Story: In the first Issue lieutenant Ota Murakami, is deployed with troops to Tokyo in 1954 with little information other than to defend the area joined with fellow soldier Kentaro Yoshihara, the troops quickly realize the severity when the assault is coming from a giant monster: Godzilla. The creature quickly kills some of their companions, leaving a last ditch effort to survive but near the end of this issue Godzilla is killed by a new device (Oxygen Destroyer) and a few months later Ota and his friend Kentaro are joining up with Colonel Schooler and he enlist them into the Anti Megalosaurus Forces because Ota hasn’t seen action since Godzilla attacked Tokyo but then he looks into a small folder with Pictures of Godzilla from Bikini Atoll and the Sea of Japan then he has an obsession with trying to kill Godzilla even though Godzilla can’t be killed.
This is basically a small retelling of the first Godzilla attack from a soldier’s perspective which I like.

The Second Issue continues in Vietnam in 1967, two years after US forces began deployment in the Vietnam War. Lieutenant Ota Murakami, as part of the Anti Megalosaurus Forces (AMF), is pursuing Godzilla in a helicopter, trying to figure why the monster has invaded Vietnam after attacking Japan so repeatedly in the past because he never left his territory. Getting ahead of the monster, Murakami meets up with fellow soldier Kentaro Yoshihara as they listen in on the American's plan of attack against the monster. AMF has their own plan, having deployed Maser Tanks to the area. However, the problem is larger than either force realizes, as the periodic earthquakes hitting the area are not simply Godzilla advancing it’s another monster named Anguirus appears and then Godzilla and Anguirus start fighting against each other.
The Monster Battle art is amazing. Also it’s the first time Godzilla has fought another giant Monster

The Third Issue continues in Ghana in 1975, the area already under siege by Godzilla, Hedorah, Rodan, Ebirah, Megalon, Battra, Kumonga, and to some extent Mothra. Lieutenant Ota Murakami, part of the AMF, is there along with Kentaro Yoshihara who makes up the Anti-Godzilla team. With the rise of so many kaiju, AMF has greatly expanded with different fractions created to specifically handle each threat, with a team (each of two members) existing to combat Megalon, Mothra, Rodan, Ebirah, Hedorah and Battra. They suspect that the monsters have all been drawn to the area because of Doctor Deverich, a former member of the AMF who was working on the psionic transmitter to be like a monster repellent but it didn’t work so he then becomes corrupt and he reversed his transmitting into monster attracting ones that he has weaponized as part of a new arms race which are monster that are a byproduct of nuclear weapons and he is trying to sell it for money. With many of their allies dead, most of the AMF is ready to give up but Ota leads a small group on one final hunt to find and stop the transmitter located somewhere in the city, with his group consisting of colonel Schooler, Kentaro Yoshihara, the Anti-Mothra team, and a member each of the Anti-Hedorah and Anti-Rodan teams. But it’s too late and Doctor Deverich sets the psionic transmitter to the chaos setting which attracts all the monsters toward it and he escapes but as the giant monster is heading to the area Colonel Schooler is trapped in some wreckage as everybody witness his death at the hands of the monsters.

The Fourth Issue in Bombay (aka Mumbai) in 1987, with the city under attack by Godzilla. Lieutenant Ota Murakami and Kentaro Yoshihara, part of the Anti Megalosaurus Forces (AMF), are there observing the destruction with Ota slowly being resigned to the fact that chasing Godzilla has become his life's work, and that the best he has been able to achieve is warning nations before the creature attacks. Much to his surprise, as AMF has become more secretive in its weapons R&D development the AMF deploys the secretive Mechagodzilla project. The mech begins to easily overpower Godzilla, Ota finds Deverich and prepares to end him when he sees the completed psionic transmitter device until it’s too late when the arrival of SpaceGodzilla. Godzilla and Mechagodzilla’s battle was interrupted with SpaceGodzilla. After SpaceGodzilla is killed Ota then realizes that with the psionic transmitter completed that maybe more space monsters will appear.

Then the fifth Issue begins in 2002 in Antarctica, humanity pushed to the brink from continued assaults from alien invaders King Ghidorah and Gigan that appeared roughly a year before. With half the world destroyed, the AMF (Anti Megalosaurus Forces) is set to make their last stand in the frozen area, having deployed both a new Mechagodzilla, Kiryu, and the Dimension Tide, a miniature black hole gun. Lieutenant Ota Murakami and Kentaro Yoshihara are at the scene as well, although Ota has an ulterior motive: to steal Kiryu and face the alien monsters, but more importantly confront Godzilla whom he correctly predicts will arrive at the battleground. Then Ota inside Kiryu and Godzilla team up against King Ghidorah and Gigan with Dimension Tide being used and obliterates the space monsters then Ota decides to throw Godzilla in the black hole with Kiryu coming apart in the Black Hole Ota takes his helmet off and yells at Godzilla to look at me you damn Monster with Godzilla roaring with Ota accepting death with his last words heh! Typical Godzilla stubborn to the very end with Ota’s death along with Kiryu’s destruction everybody assumes Godzilla is dead but at the end we only see Godzilla’s dorsal fins swimming away.

This comic has lots of great artwork in it. Godzilla looks fantastic we have set ups to Godzilla during each time period.
1954 we set up Godzilla’s first appearance and we had basic military.
1960’s we set up some of the light science fiction with maser tanks and another giant monster with a monster battle along with monster control.
1970’s we had James Bond spy concepts and Monster control is in full swing along with multiple monsters more than 2 kind of like destroy all monster fights.
Then we move to the 1980’s where we have technology/Robotics and Ground soldiers are obsolete so we replace them with Mechagodzilla to prevent the loss of more human lives since ground soldiers with gun can’t beat Godzilla so let’s use a giant Robot.
In the 2000’s we have space monsters so we have Kiryu from Godzilla against Mechagodzilla (2002) and Dimension tide from Godzilla vs Megaguirus (2000).

The only minor thing that isn’t explained is SpaceGodzilla but if you’re a Godzilla fan then you already know how SpaceGodzilla is created if not then you’ll be confused.

I give this comic a 10/10
