  1. A very well researched and written article. Too bad Varan and Anguirus couldn't have been in the film, instead of Mothra and King Ghidorah. Varan and Anguirus would have been a much better fit for the guardians of old. The Godzilla art at the head of this article,who is that by and is there a link to more of their work ?

  2. Sorry the the lack of a response Kevin! The work is done by Gojigirl. I think she is on deviantart...

  3. Cool and thanks for the info. Gojigirl's artwork has a great look to it, I'll check it out.
