Dig This Gleeful Illustration of BATMAN ’66 VS. GODZILLA

Artist Jeff Zornow joins the kitschy kaiju fun…

Project Batzilla’s fan-driven adaptation of the “lost” 1960s Batman Meets Godzilla movie treatment has been a real kick to cover this year. (Click here for a look at the latest issue, for example.)

But it turns out Eric Elliott and his crew aren’t the only ones charmed by The Greatest Movie That Never Was.

Artist Jeff “ZORNOW MUST BE DESTROYED” Zornow — who illustrated IDW’s Godzilla: Rulers of Earth — has taken his own Bat-stab at the titanic showdown:

“I was sorta compelled to do the Batman vs Godzilla, just cuz I thought it would be a neat thing for fans,” Zornow said. “Also it’s sorta silly.”

Zornow said he’s not working on any Godzilla projects at the moment, which is too bad — because damn, look at this:

  2. That Batman/Godzilla art piece just screams epicness. Jeff Zornow really did great in capturing the 1960s spirit of both characters. 🙂
