Reviews - What do customers think about Giant Monster?

A Fun "Ode to the B-Movies" Graphic Novel  Jul 4, 2008
Giant Monster is a very simple story. It's a fast read and you'll manage to finish it in one sitting. That's not a bad thing. With a title like "GIANT MONSTER" you've pretty much got to know where you're heading.

Steve Niles does a decent job of setting the story in place quickly and artist Nat Jones handles the visuals gruesomely at times (another good thing). With a read this simple the fun comes in the discovery so I won't spoil it with too much detail but suffice to say: there's a giant monster, the military, and loads of death, destruction, and action. It's all delivered with a fun smirk and wink to the audience and I found myself entertained.
Should Have Been Longer  Mar 14, 2008
Here's a relatively quick review without any spoilers. Got this in the mail yesterday and read it on the train into work today. The first half is great, but the second half really should have been two separate parts.

I really like Nat Jones' character design, the coarse line-work compliments the nature of the story. The setup is great. The story begins with an interesting Vemon-esc creation story. The monster is a zombie kaiju that grows as it eats, which is a nice development on Steve Niles' part. The story is pretty gory, but the cover makes that pretty clear - so if that makes you squeamish, this probably isn't the book for you. The story has a really nice development. I was really into it by the mid point, but they keep introducing new elements almost to the very end. My other complaint is that there are lots of characters for such a short story and most of them don't have proper time to develop. There's lots of potential and a few interesting character moments for the monster - but it's squelched by pushing much too quickly for a conclusion. The "final conflict" seems sudden. It is very brief and somewhat dissatisfying accordingly - it seems too easy and there is next-to-no wrap-up.

Overall it's worth checking out if you're really into kaiju or you're looking for a new spin on a zombie story, but it could have been better.
