The solicit for Godzilla Rivals: Biollante Vs. Destoroyah is live now and that means your first official look at the book is here. We've got a spectacular main cover by my collaborator Sean Dove and a gorgeous variant by Andrew MacLean. (A 1:10 incentive cover by my friend Camila Fortuna will be revealed soon.)

Here's the full description...

(W) Nick Marino (A) Sean Dove

No need for gloom, just drink a BLOOME! There's an irresistible new beverage, Bio-II from BLOOME, that's taken the world by storm. The lives of two unlikely allies collide as they scramble to unlock the sinister secrets behind Bio-II and halt the rebirth of the strangest botanical beast the Earth has ever seen, the blossoming Biollante!

Dr. Meena Shyam is a disgraced kaiju researcher whose radical ideas saw her shunned by the scientific community. Needles is a slacker hacker who's just cracked the code behind BLOOME's proprietary recipe. Together, crisscrossing the moonlit hills and bridges of Pittsburgh, they race against the clock to stop Biollante's destruction as they call forth one of the deadliest kaiju of all time, the dastardly Destoroyah!

Published by IDW, our issue is expected to smash its way this May into stores everywhere. Godzilla Rivals: Biollante Vs. Destoroyah is available for preorder now at your comic shop through PRH (cover A, cover B, cover C) and Previews (cover A, cover B, cover C).

Nola Pfau from the three-peat Eisner-winning WWAC did a totally sick tweet thread about the panel, covering all of the announcements including the upcoming Godzilla Rivals: Biollante vs. Destoroyah comic book that I'm writing with art by Sean Dove. IDW shared the pencils for our variant cover drawn by Andrew MacLean.

Big shoutout to all of the great comic creators who I shared the stage with and everyone who attended! I'll post more about our comic as soon as I can.
