Monsters: Gorgo – Steve Ditko

ditkosmonsters-gorgo-pr-1

This is a bunch of comic stories about a Godzilla knock-off, drawn by famed Spiderman artist Steve Ditko. Gorgo’s points of differentiation are that he’s slightly more amphibious than his inspiration, and his close relationship with his even larger mother. My favourite story involved a Hollywood production crew getting tangled up with the monster. I was surprised by how often romance formed a counterpoint to Gorgo’s titanic struggles. Still, this collection didn’t do all that much for me.
