I recently got myself an HBO Max subscription to test out so that I can stream a few movies (Zach Snyder Justice League cut, Godzilla vs Kong, and Mortal Kombat).
The first thing I streamed was Kong: Skull Island.
I have a secret I need to share.
I love primates!!!!
I have been a fan of King Kong since I went on the old Universal Theme Park ride and it smelled like bananas. I loved that ride so much when I was in my preteens. I even enjoyed the 2005 Jack Black starred, Peter Jackson directed King Kong movie that lasted almost 4 hours long.
Once I watched Kong: Skull Island I went back and rewatched both Godzilla movies.
I'm not as big a fan of Godzilla as I am King Kong. One of my old friends was obsessed with Godzilla. I never understood the fanhood of the character.
Now I don't want to spoil anything in Godzilla vs Kong, but Kong comes up in a huge way to help save the day, but let me say that in an actual fight between the two Godzilla will certainly win, but I'm rooting for Kong.
Much like sketch cards I prefer the (Brian) Kong variety to the (Bob)Zilla variety
Brian Kong's art is so good it was also used as the reproduction art for the 2016 Topps Museum Reproction Canvas Collection cards
Below is a 1/1 mini sketch card from 2014 Allen & Ginter.
I've been doing a lot of talking about (Brian) Kong, but let's talk about that Zilla now...
Bobzilla has fed off the hype of the Topps Project2020 and Project70 success and has been drawing on cards and selling them via ebay which I have lost because quite frankly the art style doesn't appeal to me.
I've been drawing on cards for half a decade and some of you may even have some of my originals, which I did long before TP2020 or TP70 came out. No offense to Mr. Zilla but I'm going to stick with my favorite Kaiju named artist and that is KONG!!!!
Who is your favorite kaiju?
Godzilla, King Kong, Mothra, or something entirely different?
What do you think of these "artists" like Bobzilla selling cards that have been drawn on?
