Go go Godzilla! 51st years of stomping in US
Fifty one years ago today in New York City, the horrors of atomic mutation came home to roost as
a guy in a giant rubber suit a gigantic lizard the size of a whale came to life on the silver screen in Godzilla, King Of The Monsters.
Starring Raymond Burr as Steve Martin (?) the big galoot would later go on to star in comics from Marvel and Dark Horse, an animated series (Godzooky!) oodles of video games and dozens of other films, including this personal favorite…
…and the inevitable sequel. Because it’s so rare for Godzilla to do a sequel.
Sigh. History shows again and again how nature points up the folly of men.
