Here's another fun thing I picked up at C2E2. Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters #1. It's a cool retailer variant I got, they did a fun launch gimmick. They sent special variant covers to supporting comic stores that showed the Big G stomping on their store.
Here are a few fun pages. Enjoy!

Alan Moore's page seems at first too gimmicky to have any resonance. The woman's rapidly turning head drawn as three exposures and the depiction of the superheated breath head-on)irritated me at first glance. But a second look reveals several amusing details (the bottom of the big guy's foot, for example) and the perspective of a difficult angle is handled well.

I thought I'd add to the kafuffle with an unorganized generally off the cuff reaction to this.
But those are my thoughts on the situation.
And, for Legality, a Japanese character who got better treatment, and J. Johna Jameson.
