Why World War Kaiju?Edit
World War Kaiju is a tribute to the kaiju genre in all its forms (both high and low). This story would never have been possible if not for the visions of Ishiro Honda, Eiji Tsuburaya, Shinichi Sekizawa, and Willis O'Brien. The brainchild of sci-fi author Josh Finney, WWK is a love letter to the golden-age of the kaiju genre. It looks to back an era when the world loved atomic monsters, but feared the atomic bomb, and warps history in ways that only men in rubber suits can.
The Minds Behind World War KaijuEdit
World War Kaiju is the brainchild of author Josh Finney. Known for his books, TITANIUM RAIN and UTOPIATES. Teaming up with fellow writer, Michael Colbert (CRAZY MARY), WWK promises a reading experience unlike any you’ve ever encountered. To capture the sheer scale of a story about 50-foot tall war monsters, Team Kaiju tapped the talents of renowned artist Patrick McEvoy. With more than a decade’s worth of experience illustrating one of the world’s most famous giant beasts, Cthulhu, McEvoy was the perfect choice for WWK. You may recognize McEvoy’s work from products such as: ARKHAM HORROR, Boom Studios: FALL OF CTHULHU, and THE CALL OF CTHULHU.
