'Godzilla: Skate or Die' #1 Shreds into Comic Shops This June

There's gleaming the cube, there's shredding the gnar, and then there's surviving a kaiju battle on your skateboard (even a monster-sized one). That's what Australian skater punks are up against this June when Varan clashes with the King of the Monsters in Godzilla: Skate or Die #1.

Written and illustrated by Louie Joyce (A Fistful of Pain), the five-issue limited series kicks off June 12 in comic book shops and online with an A cover by Joyce and a B cover by Juni Ba.

Louie: "I am so excited to share 'Godzilla: Skate or Die' with the world! A story set right here in Aus, inspired by all the amazing DIY spots I've had the privilege of skating, as well as the incredible freedom and power that comes with having wheels under your feet! All against the backdrop of an epic Kaiju showdown. It's gonna get gnarly!"

From IDW's official solicitation:

It's Australian skater punks versus Varan and the King of the Monsters in this thrilling debut issue by writer/artist Louie Joyce (A Fistful of Pain)! Four years ago, four best friends and die-hard skaters found the perfect location for a DIY skatepark. After months of hard work, they created the world’s sickest spot that they could enjoy for the rest of their lives… That is, until the ferocious Varan appeared in the middle of central Australia and started making a beeline for their beloved park. Why is Varan on a rampage? Why did Godzilla just appear off the coast? What does their beloved skate spot have to do with this? And most importantly…what are these punks willing to do to save it?

Here at Kapow we can't hold our excitement to see what local legend Louie Joyce does with Godzilla!
