- Special Guests -
Matt Frank is known in both Japan and America as the "Kaiju King," having been an artist for IDW's Godzilla comics since 2011. Also, he has been creating new art for the Japanese releases of IDW's Godzilla comics, including collaboration covers with famous Japanese artists.
Originally conceived as a monster mash up where all your favorite kaiju could battle it out, the game and it's kaiju have since evolved, now consisting of 50 original creations! In 2017, the creators were given an opportunity to release a series of expansion packs using licensed kaiju such as: Atomic Rex, Goryo and the Fire Beast Dorugan!
Houston-based artist Mark Lyons is inspired by the absurd, the fantastic and the macabre. Alien invasions, undead pets and drug addicted rabbits are just a few of the themes that can be found in his illustrations; not to mention giant monsters, which are his favorite thing to draw.
