CBR: Layman Talks "Godzilla: Gangsters and Goliaths"

Even as the new comic book Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters continues its rampage, publisher IDW launches a companion mini-series this June, Godzilla: Gangsters and Goliaths. Comic Book Resources has an interview with the mini's writer, Eisner Award-winner John Layman (Chew):
I wanted to fuse two of my favorite Asian cinema genres -- the monster movie with the hard-boiled gun-fu cops and gangsters movie. So the story is about a framed cop, wanted by the underworld and the police force, trying to clear his name, trying to protect his family, and trying to get revenge. He gets some help when he gets hold of the Mothra Twins, and starts using Mothra to systematically eliminate the families of the Tokyo criminal underworld.
