Lyles Movie FilesThis mini-series is overdelivering so far with great character portrayals and some strong action sequences. Time to send in the big guy next.
Get Your Comic OnA colossal combination that you will never knew you wanted but you really do. A strong storyline that keeps you focused on every page, eye popping visuals creates a comic that simply can’t be missed.
The Newest RantThese first two issues are great and I am quite excited to see more knock-down drag-out fights between our heroes and the kaiju--I just hope the Justice League can survive these encounters.
Dark Knight NewsI’m genuinely enjoying this series more than I thought I would. It’s definitely not a series that you can pick up, set down for an issue, and pick up again without some disruption in the continuity, but that’s not a bad thing with how this story has been designed. Hopefully, the next issue will continue to pack some punches and introduce even more fascinating monsters for readers to learn about.
Nerd InitiativeIf you want action, look no further! With Buccellato orchestrating the fight card, Duce and Guerrero give readers a show-stopping initiative of excitement. Once the issue concludes, there is no doubt of how huge the stakes are and its’ outcome is one not to miss!
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: Buccellato goes for straight action and thrills throughout this issue and that works for the story being crafted in this series. Seeing the Bat Family working together was great and seeing Superman struggle to take on Godzilla is a treat, but definitely needs to be fleshed out to make sense. Overall, a fun and entertaining follow up that captured my interest. The Art: Duce crafts some beautifully detailed and dramatic art that perfectly captures the action and tone of the story.
The Comicbook DispatchJustice League Vs. Godzilla Vs. King Kong #2 continues to be that perfect escape comic that’s jam-packed and full of action. This amazing story coupled with some dynamic renderings of Godzilla helps place this comic in an extremely fun place for readers of all ages. If you’re a Godzilla fan, you’ll need this installment. If you’re a huge Superman fan, this comic could also be for you seeing as though he takes center stage more so than any other.
Geek DadAfter a first issue that mostly focused on Superman’s proposal to Lois Lane and the Legion of Doom’s latest scheme, the monsters of the Monsterverse are unleashed on the DCU—and it’s not just the two in the title. While Godzilla spars with Superman in Metropolis and a giant spider and mammoth terrorize the League headquarters and Themyscira respectively, the monster to actually get the most screentime this issue is the giant Bat-monster knows as Camazotz—which of course, heads to Gotham where he’s mostly met with non-powered heroes. The banter between the heroes as they try to stop the massive monsters is fun, although Jason comes off a little over-the-top obnoxious when bickering with the rest of the Bats. There are a lot of guest-stars, including Black Canary and Shazam, and the creative team does a great job of thinking up unique ways that their powers could give the monsters a run for their money—with an excellent cliffhanger.
Graphic PolicyJustice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong #2 isn’t all that complicated. The Justice League is fighting monsters in multiple cities. It’s the punching and destruction you’d expect from a story like this, nothing more. And honestly, it’s exactly what I’d want from this. It’s a comic you can just sit back, turn off you brain, and enjoy the symphony of destruction.
AIPTIf you want giant monster action, Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong #2 delivers it big time. I could do without so many exposition scenes that slow the overall pace, but expectations are met as far as Superman and Godzilla in this issue.
ComicBook.comThe battle of literal Titans continues in Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong, and so far the series is living up to the bonkers premise. The sense of scale created by artist Christian Duce and florist Luis Guerrero is truly something to behold, allowing Godzilla, Camazotz, and more to be the imposing forces of nature that fans love. Camazotz is especially impressive, making the Bat-family look like ants by comparison, but writer Brian Buccellato utilizes that mismatch to showcase what makes Batman and the rest of the Family so special, and the back and forth between the two stole the show for me. That's not taking anything away from the Superman vs. Godzilla throwdown mind you, as that also delivers, and I'm quite excited to see what else the series has in store for the rest of DC's heroes in future issues. This is just bombastic fun, and should only get better when Kong enters the picture.
Weird Science DC Comics
Supergirl Comic Box CommentaryThis was more of a set-up issue than the first issue which now feels like a prologue or a teaser. The teams are set up. The monsters are on the table. And we still have Grodd and Kong out there somewhere.
Comic WatchThis issue is a mixed bag and this is largely in part from the writing. Which is a shame because a story having monsters shouldn’t mean suddenly the writing needs to take a dip.
Superman HomepageOverall issue two is another strong installment. While parts of the issue are a little formulaic, the cliffhanger ending makes it good. Serving as part two of act one Buccellato is setting up the initial problem and how the heroes plan on addressing it. We are made aware of four monsters spread throughout the DC world and the heroes are divided accordingly. What we do not know is, where Kong is or if there are more monsters out there.
Derby ComicsA comic book about superheroes and a giant lizard and ape should have been non-stop action with insane displays of power and strength. Yet we get SO MUCH talking, very littler monster fighting, and at this point I had to remind myself if we’ve even seen King Kong yet after two issues. The plot thread involving the LoD being responsible for time/multiverse traveling is too convoluted to make any sense and takes away from what should be epic battles between Earth’s defenders and mutant animals. The art of the issue makes up for some of the writing’s imperfections but Godzilla felt stationary the entire issue. It looked like he was in the same exact location in all his panels. Is he not moving around? Is he not destroying buildings left and right? The inconsistency took me out of the moment and what little I was invested in this story. This really needs to pick up soon before it becomes a complete miss. It’s a travesty for this title to be so boring.
