Saw this awesome painting on Twitter a couple times. Tracked it down to a post on the Donkeyshines blog. The artist should really consider selling prints of this.
OMG, this flying Hedorah sofubi.
The first memory I have of Godzilla is being at a relatives house when I was 5 or 6 years old and watching Godzilla vs. Hedorah (Godzilla vs. The Smog Monster in the United States). There is a scene in the movie where Hedorah flies over a group of human beings and as he flies off and the trail of pollution dissipates, the humans are all dead.
That completely traumatized me as a young child–I had regular nightmares about that scene well into my teens.
Would buy this just to wack it with a bat and exorcise those decades-old demons.
Nice sofubi of Godzilla from 1995’s Godzilla vs. Destroyah.
