Top 20 Craziest Kaiju Contest!

YOU could win an artist-approved, limited edition print of Todd Tennant’s King Komodo in action (see image below)!

King Komodo printIn the lead-up to the announcement of Kaiju Search-Robot Avery’s Top 20 Craziest Kaiju Countdown Number 1 spot, I thought we’d have a contest.

The winner must guess Avery’s Number 1 pick (subject to rules set out below).

If you’ve forgotten the parameters of the Top 20 Craziest Kaiju Countdown, read Avery’s introduction here!

For a complete listing of the films that have appeared to date, go to the Category listing.

The Rules

  1. One entry per person.

  2. The entrant who picks Avery’s Number 1 choice wins the prize (subject to the following conditions).

  3. Designation of the Number 1 choice should include title, director and year of first release so that we’re all clear on exactly which film you are talking about.

  4. If more than one entrant picks Avery’s choice correctly, the names of all those with the correct answer will be placed in a box and a final winner drawn at random.

  5. The judge’s choice will be final and no annoying correspondence will be entered into.

  6. The judge in case of dispute will be Pazuzu the Cat, as always.

  7. Entries should be sent as a comment to this post. Entries will not be accepted in any other way.

  8. Entries close the moment I post a Backbrain announcement that the Top 20 Craziest Kaiju Countdown Number 1 choice is about to be revealed.

The Prize

King Komodo is a rampaging behemoth created by kaiju artist Todd Tennant. He is lead mon-star of a graphic serial, Tales of King Komodo, written by Mick Bogue and drawn by Todd, that is currently appearing in the long-running giant monster magazine, G-Fan. If you haven’t seen it before, you should pick up a copy of G-Fan from your local newsagency, comic store or online, and find out what you’re missing (and if you’re into giant monster movies and don’t subscribe, you’re definitely missing out bigtime)!

The print, titled “King Komodo Poster III”, comes on high-quality art paper and is 8.5″ X 11″ in size. It is signed and numbered by the artist.


Feel free to spread the news of this contest to friends and enemies alike.

Good luck!

    The Sta-Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters directed by Ivan Reitman 1984

  2. Mike Hawkins says:

    With some of the craziest and wackiest of monsters, of all time, already listed in this, it’s quite hard to really choose… so I’d have to say Guilala, from the “X from Outer Space” (1967).

  4. Nachthymnen says:

    Maybe Gezora the ugliest giant squid monster from Yog : Monster from Space (Ishirô Honda, 1970) even if I think that Avery will found a more mysterious & underground monster !

  5. Backbrain says:

    I love Gezora. He’s one of my favourite weirdos. But then, I’m not Avery…. so we’ll see.

    The monster will be Guilala most likely

  9. Backbrain says:

    The contest is closed now, of course. We seem to have two potential winners and when I get a chance I’ll draw a name at random to be the winner. Hey, maybe I’ll give both a prize!
