“It is harmless fun that seems as if the creators were having fun creating it. And sometimes that’s all that matters. ”

Today on the program we will be discussing the absolutely bonkers series from Marvel back in the late 70s Godzilla: King of the Monsters written by Doug Moench with art (for the most part) by Herb Trimpe. How bonkers? Well, Godzilla fights monsters, sure, that’s a given, but he also tangles with cattle rustlers, a New York sewer rat, and goes to space. Seriously, Godzilla goes to space. The 1970s were weird.

In addition, we ramble on far too long about old adverts in comics. So if you like to hear two old guys talk about things “back in my day” you’re in luck!

As always, thanks for listening.
