The Grooviest Covers of All Time: The Marvel-ous Godzilla

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! This weekend's big flick is the new Godzilla movie. If all goes according to plan, Ol' Groove will have seen it before you read this pugnacious post (I'll tell ya what I thought later). I have always been a Godzilla fan, so how cool was it when Mighty Marvel got the rights to the King of the Monsters back in May, 1977? It was pretty cool, especially when you consider that Doug Moench wrote it, Herb Trimpe drew it (Happy Herb was the Master of Big Green Monsters, wuzn't he?), and they even got S.H.I.E.L.D., the Champions, the FF, Devil Dinosaur, and the Avengers involved. Check out these cool covers by Happy Herb and an army of awesome inkers, baby!
