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.
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!
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.
A commission I did for one of the fine, fine denizens of the SciFi Japan/Club Tokyo-o0o-Monster Zero forums, depicting either King Kong versus Frankenstein or Kong and Frankenstein teamed up against the JSDF, depending on how you'd like to look at it.
