Yeah. This just became a "must buy".
Without a doubt this is the book I'm most looking forward to next year.
Check out the awesome Hester art in the link.

Good read. I think this will be a series that a lot of us are going to enjoy.
Powell: When I was a kid I had the 2-ft Shogun Warrior Godzilla figure with the shooting fist. I don't think I have to say anything else. (I sadly no longer own that masterpiece of a 1970's toy.)
I had that growing up. I still have the Rodan one.
Nrama: Further earn the loyalty of hardcore Godzilla fans by offering your..um, perspective on the 1998 film with Matthew Broderick.
Marsh: Actually, that was one of the movies that Eric forbade me to watch when I started researching Godzilla films. What was it you said, Eric? It was either, “That movie will taint the entire Godzilla experience for you,” or “That movie is about as relevant as my taint.”
Powell: Loath is not a strong enough word. I think it was a plot to make the Japanese like us even less.
And with this, I feel very good about how they are approaching this series.
I cannot describe how psyched I am for this. Godzilla has been a part of my life probably before I was born (Thanks mom!) and continues to be so.
What makes this series a must buy is the fact that they are including a lot of the other monsters. I can't wait to see them all in this.
I love the interior pages. Great stuff!

One thing I'm wondering and hope we'll see is the two priestesses who usually summon and help communicate with Mothra.
I'm loving Hester's take on Godzilla as well -- he looks powerful. None of those skinny wimpy-looking arms that Herb Trimpe gave Godzilla back in the Marvel series. I love Trimpe, but I always thought that he really didn't 'get' Godzilla.
My two favorite designs are the one from the Heisei era:
and from the Millenium series:
The design in the comic looks very similar to those which makes me very happy.
