Damn, I love the work of Arthur “Art” Adams. He did the cover of a Creature from the Black Lagoon comic adaptation that I still cherish and now he’s taking on the new Godzilla for Legendary Comics.
That’s the art you see for Godzilla: Awakening by Adams. To pave the way for the iconic creature’s return on the big screen May 16th, Legendary Comics will be releasing this title.

Fresh off the heels of the release of Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut, Boom! Studios have announced (via Multiveristy Comics) that the cult classic property Clive Barker’s Nightbreed will be getting its very own comic series later this year.

2013 was a good year for horror comics. Not only was there as huge resurgence in licensed characters, but the world of creator-owned comics is still expanding and with writers/artists looking to control their creations now more than ever we can expect original and hard hitting comics to continue, just like they did this year. There was a big crop of things to choose from, but I think I’ve covered all the bases, not just in terms of quality but in the forms of horror on display.
Dark Horse Comics has released a new teaser for their upcoming relaunch of the Aliens, Predator, and AvP comics which will be joined by Prometheus in a four series “shared universe” that will debut next year. Check out the “odds of survival” after the jump!
What can we surmize from this teaser? None of these human shilouettes look all that familiar, so when the creators said the comics will deal with all-new characters we know they’re telling the truth. A few other things we can take a stab at, not all of these folks are military and they’re definitely not present day people. So will they all be taking place in the far future?
