A famous monster meets a famous ship.

Hey, if Alex Cox could do it Dark Horse Comics' issue #11, and Jean-Pierre Normand made this preview pic as a cover for G-Fan Magazine #31, why not me? Bandwagons aren't all bad, you know.

Picture (c) Mr. Normand
Godzilla (c) Toho Pictures
Story (c) Keith E. Kimball

Download the PDF to read the story; I won't use plain HTML text. It's so ugly that Ebirah is frightened.

Hee-hee, hey, nothing wrong with a cool nickname! (Although I was wondering if you were really a doctor, possibly a psychologist or something. You never know.)

I'd like to read on universtitet but as a dyslexic, I have realized that the road to it is too long. I teach graphics and 3d. so my interest in people and learning is fortunately big part of my Life

That is so cool that you can turn a negative into a positive like that, Caroline. It's actually very inspiring! Guess I'll have to work harder at my writing too then. :D Thank you!

Hee hee...too soon for Godzilla to show up (before 1954?) or just too soon for the Titanic to sink? Her maiden voyage, can you believe that? What a tragedy in real life...

Yep, only six degrees separate Godzilla from all natural disasters.
On a more sober note, it's almost too bad he isn't in Japan right now. He could absorb/eat all that runaway nuclear radiation and STOP the meltdown for once.

But then he would have to contend with Mighty Cthulhu, whom Caused the tsunami to begin with.
wonder what kinda fight match up that would make.... hmmmm.
lol.
Godzilla is a little smaller, like half the size, but is actually Much more powerful. Yet, Cthulhu has not only mystical forces at his command, but cannot actually be permanently killed, so he would be back again and again. hahaha.
Ahh. you brought out the Geek in me. I should do a zilla drawing soon. hmm, think i WILL.

do you have me on watch? have you looked at me work yet?
The honest to god truth is, I already Have a gozilla drawing started. A very detailed one at that. But its gotten shelved so I can do work for the up coming comic expo in june.
I already have Gammera done on it, you know, the big turtle monster? It will be him , zilla, and likely mothra.
I have been VERY interested in doing a full on Cthulhu drawing one day as well.
I dont know for sure WHEN I'll be able to get back to it, but I would actually Like to have IT done as an extra piece for the expo as well.

Wow, you're actually a professional, aren't you? Your work is so detailed... 'tis humbling to me.
Anyway, Gamera, Cthulhu, and Godzilla? I'm actually going to get and read Lovecraft for the first time when I hit the library this weekend. I'm looking forward to it.

Aw, me neither yet. I did get my first professional gig last November, $50.00 for a very short non-fiction article, woo-hoo!
And not a penny since for writing since. *sigh*

The artist who did the piece is Jean-Pierre Normand. This was the cover of G-FAN magazine issue #31.

Here's a link.

Ah! Thank you! This picture is posted all over the internet and not one reference to the artist. (Actually, I found three conflicting references, one of which was Mr. Normand...but I had no way to know which was which.)
Say, Mecha74, did you like my story? :-)

Story? Hmmm, all I see is the title Strangers In The Night, but nothing else below he pic. Or is it a seperate deviation that you have?

No, just the one. Darn these preview pics; nobody realizes they have to download the PDF to read the actual story. Eh, I updated the description; thanks for the heads-up buddy.

LOL XD, clearly Godzilla hitched a ride on Mothra Leo and went back in time to before jets and tanks were invented so he could get some much deserved rest XD

Yep. I considered using her sister ship Britannic for the story instead, but it would be much harder to squeeze Godzilla into the story.
