Media Release — The much-anticipated monster, Kaijumax Deluxe Edition Book 1, by two-time Eisner Award-winning creator Zander Cannon hit shelves on February 6, 2018. Hardbound and standing at 368 full-color pages, this gargantuan and acclaimed sci-fi/fantasy collection retails at $59.99.
Up from the depths! 13 inches high! Breathing fire! Its head in the sky! It’s the KAIJUMAX KAIJU-SIZED DELUXE HARDCOVER! Collecting the first 12 issues in oversized full color glory, this is the epic, pitch-black, candy-colored kaiju prison comic that once and for all points out the folly of man. Follow Electrogor, Mechazon, Warden Kang, The Creature from Devil’s Creek, Chisato, Hellmoth, Jeong, and more as they negotiate the harsh rules of prison, the perils of the kaiju black market, and the allure of the illicit uranium trade. From the depths of the Old Gods’ Krakenhouse to Team GREAT’s orbital laser satellite, from the 1960s to modern day, the furious, anguished, or triumphant roars of Kaijumax’s inmates will ring in your ears for all time.
“Oversize Kaiju hardcovers wait for no one! KAIJUMAX’s first two critically-acclaimed and Eisner-nominated seasons are here, bigger than life, collected in this titanic, terrifying tome, complete with page-by-page annotations so no one, kaiju cinephile or not, is left out of the loop!” said Zander Cannon. “With twelve issues, along with scripts, sketches, character designs, creator interviews, and an ear-shattering roar, this punishingly enormous collection of giant monster prison drama will assert its dominance over your bookshelf for all time!”
Praise for Kaijumax:
“The cartoony art is the ultimate sucker punch: Some of the creatures are cute and start to tug at your sympathies—despite their sometimes reprehensible actions.” – The New York Times
“Cannon cares deeply for the kaiju genre, and by extension, his hulking cartoon creations, and that emotional connection rubs off on the reader. There’s a tenderness to some of these creatures—their concerns and their dialogue, as they get repeatedly crushed underfoot by Kaijumax’s circumstances.” – The Observer
“Cannon’s unreal world of [monsters and squishers] is a carnival mirror reflecting our world. This comic is a unique and humane triumph.”
– Salon Magazine
