Daikazu is, to my knowledge, the only original giant monster who has headlined his own comic book. Konga, Gorgo, Godzilla and Gamera have all had series at one time or another. But they got their starts in the movies. Daikazu was a comic book character first. And probably last. I find it hard to imagine the Big D getting adapted into any other medium. Americans don’t have the fetish for giant monster wrestling that would be necessary to get financing for a film or a tv series.

I had fan art published in one issue of Daikazu. I knew I had to include some version of Daikazu in my monster portraits for Kaijuphile. The finished version of this portrait is here.
