Growing up we didn’t have access the vast library of Japanese Godzilla books we do today. We can find just about any Godzilla book or publication online from Mandarake, Amazon Japan, Buyee Japan and more with mouse click. However, back in the 70s and 80s, that was not the case. There were only a few and for kids virtually impossible to get. What we did have were faithful horror and sci-fi magazines and books published in the U.S. For me they were my Godzilla Bible. From time to time, I will highlight my favorites in a new blog segment called “The Magazines that Made Me,” playing on the Netflix series The Toys That Made Us. My hope is that you share the same feelings I have for these magazines.
