"... The Creature Has Made It All the Way To Downtown Los Angeles…”

I just finished up Steve (30 Days of Night) Niles’ Giant Monster. It’s a fun Sci-Fi horror comic with some nice twists on an old genre. It’s well scripted with moments of dark humor. If I didn't know better, I'd say that Giant Monster seems like it was made to interest major film studios. Hmmmmmm… I’m not completely on board with Nat Jones’ art style though, but I like the rendering of the Monster itself so that’s something. Here again, it appears that Boom Studios is ahead of the curve as a slew of American Kaiju films are sure to be green lit following the success of Cloverfield. And to ride that success, Boom is releasing this comic on-line for free (grrrrr). See it here

That is one sweet cover. Is the interior art good?

The cover is great! The art is fine although, it's not really the style I like, but the monster is well done. Check out the link for the interiors
