World War Kaiju is a tribute to the kaiju genre in all its forms (both high and low). This story would never have been possible if not for the visions of Ishiro Honda, Eiji Tsuburaya, Shinichi Sekizawa, and Willis O'Brien. The brainchild of sci-fi author Josh Finney, WWK is a love letter to the golden-age of the kaiju genre. It looks to back an era when the world loved atomic monsters, but feared the atomic bomb, and warps history in ways that only men in rubber suits can.
Upon achieving our initial goal of $15,000, World War Kaiju will be an 80 page graphic novel presented in 9x6 landscape or “widescreen” format.
