Frank Tieri and Inaki Miranda tell a tale of monsters and pirates this June.
Writer Frank Tieri and artist Inaki Miranda, the team behind DC’s Old Lady Harley series, will reunite for a new miniseries featuring another destructively iconic character — Godzilla.
“I’ve been very fortunate in my career to have written for quite a few iconic franchises, but I have to admit, there’s something extra special about getting to work on Godzilla,” Tieri said. “Just writing this series I’m instantly a little kid again, watching him fight Rodan or the Smog Monster or whichever Monster of the Week.

IDW has announced Godzilla: Here There Be Dragons, a five-issue miniseries set in the “era of seafaring and superstition,” aka the 1500s, when maps warned of dragons and monsters in undiscovered parts of the world. In this case, those warnings were right. The comic will tell the story of one of explorer Sir Francis Drake’s lost voyages — one that featured everyone’s favorite radioactive kaiju.
“What could be cooler than a Godzilla tale with pirates?” Tieri said. “Here There Be Dragons is a lost voyage of Sir Francis Drake, told through the eyes of a crewman facing execution. The question is, is he telling the truth? Is there really a conspiracy to cover up what happened to Drake on that island and the existence of Godzilla? Or is this merely another pirate’s tall tale? Avast, ye Godzilla fans, and batten down the hatches at your local comic book shop!”
