Doug Moench and Herb Trimpe present a Godzilla tale that involves not one but TWO scenes of glorious ascension for our beloved mutant reptile. Yes, they involve spaceships and aliens. But, surely no religious zealot ever thrilled to the Ascension of their icons any more than we thrilled to see Godzilla lifted into the psychedelic skies. No heaven awaits our fire-breathing hero — only giant monster battles in space, fueled by rage and an animalistic need for territorial dominion. Now unleash the Beta Beast!
