The Coming! is the first issue of Marvel's Godzilla, King of the Monsters. It was released on August 1977.


Plot

Godzilla rises from Alaskan waters and begins to destroy an Alaskan oil pipeline. The destruction brings the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D., who assigns a "Godzilla Squad" consisting of Timothy "Dum Dum" Dugan, Gabriel Jones, Jimmy Woo, and Nick Fury brings in resident Godzilla expert Yuriko Takiguchi, his assistant Tamara Hashioka, and his grandson Robert Takiguchi to help.

As a S.H.I.E.L.D. battalion tries to stop Godzilla with various weapons, but it all fails. After Godzilla destroys everything SHIELD throws at him, he leaves unscathed. Meeting up with Fury, Dugan is introduced to Takiguchi and his clan and they begin to discuss how they may stop Godzilla. Tamara talks of a secret weapon that they have been devising to use against Godzilla.
