Dream Project: SHOGUN WARRIORS

Comic Book Resources and Robot 6 gave comics writer Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun) the chance to share his "six nostalgic dream projects" -- that is, six comics from his childhood he'd love a crack at writing someday. Among his picks? Shogun Warriors:
"I’d focus more on the Shogun pilots, their training, and the other characters in their world. Our heroes do their best work when they’re shut off from everyone else behind a thousand tons of metal. Would they be similarly shut off in their day-to-day lives? Could they even have day-to-day lives? Sure, there would be giant monsters, but not every issue. We’d have to have some build-up so the battles would be a little more impactful. Maybe it would play out a little like Neon Genesis Evangelion, only without the nonsensical ending."

Godzilla vs. The Cyborg Whale

Godzilla: The Original Animated Series, Vol. 1It's the adventures of Godzilla, King of the Monsters ... Scooby-Doo style! Co-produced by Hanna-Barbera and Toho, the series followed a team of scientists conducting their research on the high seas -- whenever there was danger, the group called upon Godzilla to bail them out.

The 1970s Saturday morning cartoon aired as part of various lineups, including The Godzilla Power Hour (along with episodes of Jana of the Jungle), The Godzilla Super 90 (Godzilla and Jana, plus reruns of Jonny Quest), The Godzilla/Globetrotters Adventure Hour, The Godzilla/Dynomutt Hour, and The Godzilla/Hong Kong Phooey Hour. (On rare occasions, the network even aired it as a standalone show called Godzilla-- imagine that!) More info at Wiki Zilla.

Watch a whole episode right here -- but be warned, it's not pretty.
