Fan favorite monster VARAN makes his first appearance in comics! Guest art from fan favorite Jeff Zornow! Matt Frank variant cover!
So this my version of Barugon from the Gamera series. In the original he was a mythical end-bringer from New Guinea, he ultimately lost to the combine forces of the JSDF and Gamera, being drowned.
I have set aside my own version of Barugon, sort of like a modernized version:
After Barugon's death, a division of the JFDS decided to record and study the monsters, hauling the carcass away to a location shrouded in secrecy for experimentation. They soon began to subject the corpse to several scientific queries, and began to learn of his origin and powers.
After studying the creature, they found the source of his power: the ability to manipulate and control the temperature within its own body. Barugon's body acts as an oven, heating and cooling the chemicals within. Barugon's long tongue acts as a cooling station, chemically lowering it's tempurature to below freezing. As water vapor travels through the tube, the sub-zero mist is created. Barugon's rainbow beam was found to be the product of manipulating water particles in the air to relfect and intesify his own body heat through his dorsal horns, creating a destructive ray. Barugon's only weakness was ironically found to be water. Water of a different temperature can create distortions in the creature's body, rendering it sloth-like and imobilized. Water must be a different temperature than it's own.
Barugon was found to be hundreds of millions of years old, preexisting the dinosaurs. Ancient inscriptions found in several Locations in New Guinea state that he was a form of punishment for the wicked, a weapon sent by the Gods to chastise the wicked ways of man. After many millenia, the human tribe of New Guinea kept the ancient beast satisfied and secret. Only the intervention of Others caused the beast to appear once more.
For those of you who aren't aware (and I imagine that's very few), this is the most legendary of all Godzilla fan films. It really existed, was made with great effort and love for the genre, and we'll be honored to meet the creator of this piece and see some of it at the next G-Fest.
Earlier this year, I came across ULTRAMAN: TOWARDS THE FUTURE (aka ULTRAMAN GREAT), both the infamous SNES game and TV series. Needless to say, the game is kinda sucky, and the series is rather cool, especially in the special effects department.
But I finally decided to do some fan art of it about a month ago, and got it colored at last.
I don't really know why, but I absolutely LOVE this monster design. It's two monsters in one!
Spent all day trying to hammer out the shading on this one. So tired. Need sleep.
Oh well. This is Destoroyah and Zetton. Two of the most powerful monsters ever to grace the screens in Japan. Two beasts that immortalize the word anti-life. Their entire existence is to propagate death to the living. Death incarnate I suppose they are. So I figured, why not pair them up.
Destoroyah was the final monster to face Godzilla in the 90’s Timeline. His birth was completely man-made. An ancient form of crustacean life, mutated most likely due to the Oxygen Destroyer (A weapon that I have him clutching in his claws in the picture). He goes through several stages of evolution before settling on the above demon like form. He can spew an Oxygen Destroying beam from his mouth and, by generating energy in his horn, can slice through a foe like a hellish katana sword. Add this with his wings for flight and crab like pincher tail, Destoroyah has came and conquered fans hearts the world over.
Zetton was the final monster to face Ultraman in the original 1966 series. He is an organic like machine, created by the Zetton race. It’s sole purpose is to kill and conquer. The beast was designed to counter all of Ultraman’s powers. He can teleport across a battlefield, generate a force field, shoot plasma shots from it’s “eyes”, and shoot a thin red beam from it’s yellow face plate. The monster can also absorb energy blasts with its hands, and redirect it back at it’s attack. All in all, it is a most horrendous beast. So much it actual kills Ultraman. A feat achieved by only a tiny handful of monsters and seijins in the Ultra Universe.
Should these two ever cross each others paths, I honestly do not know who would prevail. Destoroyah’s only real weakness is extreme cold or heat. Two things that Zetton does not necessarily have. I mean his energy attacks do have heat, but nothing really compared to Godzilla’s Spiraling Beam. But Zetton has the ability to move around and not really tire. It would be close but I just think that eventually the devil Destorayah would not be able to put up with the constant attacks of the machine like monster. Either way, they have both proved to be villains to never forget. To be death in the flesh
Well………hope you all enjoy the piece and my little rambling. I've wanted to do a split screen type graphic piece for a while now and liked how it came out. Now I'm going to take a two hour nap from this all nighter Just wanted to get this up as soon as possible. Peace G-fans!
