Growing up I was always a fan of Godzilla movies, in all their campy hooky glory, but really I always knew there was a level of political and philosophical idealism to them I could never appreciate because i was American, Marc Jacobson gave me a strange level of depth to how those movies effected me as a view for whom they were never really intended

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802135390, Paperback)

Once a normal monitor lizard, Gojiro was transformed into a giant lizard by an atomic test after WWII. Meanwhile, in an Okinawa hospital, Komodo--the world famous coma boy--reawakens for the first time since the Hiroshima blast nine years before. Together, the lizard and orphan venture forth to discover their identities in a world in which neither belongs. The story of their journey is geek love on a truly epic scale.
