Tieri + Miranda set sail again for a second volume of ‘Godzilla: Here There Be Dragons’

The five-issue miniseries kicks off in June.

The official Godzilla site has news on Godzilla: Here There Be Dragons II – Sons of Giants, a sequel to the 2023 miniseries by writer Frank Tieri and artist Inaki Miranda.

The five-issue miniseries will pick up where the first volume left off, continuing a story from the 1500s that saw Sir Francis Drake encounter Godzilla on his trip around the world. The Sons of Giants, a monster-worshipping cult that protected the secrets of the kaiju, will play prominently in the new story.

“Truth be told, we were absolutely floored by the response to Godzilla: Here There be Dragons. Godzilla fans are really just awesome and pleasantly surprised us. Here we had this off the wall idea that was basically Godzilla meets Pirates of the Caribbean and thankfully they were more than willing to take that crazy ride with us… and they’ll be happy to know that the crazy ride not only ain’t over just yet, but gets quite a bit crazier,” Tieri said.

The new volume will take place in different time periods all over the world, as the creative team visits Rome, feudal Japan, ancient Egypt and the early days of America in the 1800s.

“It’s amazing to be back in this rich world. This is going to be a real fun monster ride! Here There be Dragons opened a very interesting secret door that we are now ready to explore full steam. Frank came up with this really interesting concept of a secret society of Godzilla worshipers, a mystery is screaming to be unfolded. And that’s what we are going to do in this volume. Kaiju fights in cool time periods assuredly!” said Miranda. “It feels to me like Frank is writing these scripts just so I can have fun, he must love me very much. Thank you, buddy! It usually takes an artist three to five issues of drawing a book to start feeling comfortable with the main character. I feel I understand Godzilla’s shapes much better now and with this in mind, I intend to do my best rendition possible. Thanks to IDW and Toho for inviting me once more to draw the coolest and baddest monster of all.”

The first issue will have two variant covers, both by Gavin Smith:

The first issue arrives in stores June 26.
