1975 Godzilla article from Monsters of the Movies

(Click on images to view larger size.)

Scanned from Monsters of the Movies #5, published Feb. 1975. This was one of the rare times that an American monster magazine devoted a cover, and especially a painted cover, to Godzilla. Bob Larkin's day-glo colors and dynamic composition placed the Big G in an American setting, which was also a first, and seemed to spark a greater interest in Japanese films on this shore. The indepth article by Don Glut certainly examined them in greater detail than most articles before had gone into.

Cool Collections. I would like to say that am seriously a very big fan of Godzilla and its movies. I love all the characters of the series. I started collecting a huge collection of Godzilla Toys after that.
