Back on December 2, 2020, Toho and IDW inked a publishing deal that would result in new Godzilla comics being release starting with this Young Adult series kicking off on April 21. Their kaiju-sized deal also covers all non-comic media like art books, journals, puzzles, and colouring books.
Monsters & Protectors' "Rise Up! Part 1" plotline begins when a greedy single-minded businessman uses a newly-discovered and untested element called E-131 to create clean energy for a profit. Electromagnetic radiation emitted by Linival Corporation's island power plant accidentally awakens the infamous beast named Godzilla. Sensing the damage this new energy poses to the planet, Godzilla charges at the heart of humankind.
Now it's all up to three adventurous middle-school students, and some magic help from Infant Island, to show Godzilla that not all humans are harmful and that there's still hope for Earth.
