Group Info

A group devoted to being a key central for finding Kaiju art and artists, as well as a social and networking tool for kaiju fandom, be it stars like Godzilla, Gamera, and King Kong, to rookies like the Cloverfield monster, and even original characters created by artists.

Membership has no requirements, other than the ONE GOLDEN RULE; all artwork submitted must involve giant monsters in some manner.

-The top artists will have their work displayed in the Featured gallery.

-There are possibilities for promotions to those committed enough.

What is Kaiju?

For those unfamiliar with the term; Kaiju is Japanese for 'strange creature', or 'monster', while the additional Daikaiju (Dai = big) means giant monster. Fans in America (perhaps even more so than those in Japan) have used Kaiju as a slang phrase for the kind of giant beasts that pop up in Japanese science fiction and fantasy films, most notably Godzilla and his many friends and foes from that ongoing franchise.

Hence the name of our group, Kaijuden - the premier Deviant Art group dedicated to such things.

However, we know Kaiju isn't a perfect term, nor our we limited to the giant monsters from Japan alone...after all, where would the King of the Monsters be without his American forefathers King Kong and The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms?

As such, we have plenty of sub-folders and galleries within our group for these foreign giants. Those said galleries are all pretty self-explanatory, but if you have any further questions, you may contact our knowledgeable co-founder Enshohma.

Don't expect the Kaiju News Round-Ups for 2015 to be as elaborate as past editions, but a little giant monster news here and there never hurts. Sadly, there's still no news for poor Gamera.

"Godzilla: Rulers of Earth" Coming To An End

The arrival of The Trillopods singles the beginning of the end for this fantastically fun series, with an 40-page long finale set for issue 25.

Our friend :iconkaijusamurai: has more on the matter:

Godzilla: Rulers of Earth to end with #25After 2 solid years of hard work and fan support, GODZILLA: RULERS OF EARTH will be ending with issue 25, to premiere in June, 2015. Don't worry though, we're going out in style! Chris Mowry is crafting a 40-page finale, with art duties by yours truly :iconkaijusamurai:, :iconzornow:, and :iconpriscillatr:!
In a perfect world, I'd opt to keep ROE going indefinitely, but if it had to end, it was a hell of a journey, and I'll be making more personal stuff to celebrate the series in the later months. And it won't be the end of Godzilla at IDW - as long as the fans want it, they're keep making it! And the same goes for me - if you want to see more of me and the rest of the Rulers team at IDW, be sure to let them know :)
After Rulers, I'll be focusing on a few other projects for a while...
Like maybe a certain art series I've neglected for a long time yet? ;)

GODZILLA vs. BURAKI by invaderTRIPP666 Dragon Wars by jpizzle6298 .:Buraki:. by CERBERUS253

"Dragon Wars" Is Getting a Freaking Sequel!?!?

The following is from Dread Central, who's news links never hold up after the first day they're posted. And hence why I'M re-posting the whole article here:

Dragon Wars Sequel Begins Shooting This Summer! We’re Not Kidding!
Posted on January 21, 2015 by Foywonder


Just when you thought Skyline 2 and a sequel to The Haunting of Molly Hartley were the most inexplicable sequels to go into production, here comes word that Dragon Wars 2 is about to become a reality. Somewhere out there a cold chill just ran down Craig Robinson’s spine.

This news both excites and baffles me. I genuinely enjoyed 2007’s Dragon Wars (review) on the same level that I enjoy a lot of old Japanese giant monster movies. I also am fully aware that the film is legitimately terrible on a multitude of levels. Just go read my review where I fired off a list of 35+ questions the movie poses but never answers.

What’s most baffling about word of a sequel is that I was under the impression that the movie was also a huge money loser. D-War, as it was known internationally, reportedly spent years in pre-production and went massively over budget. The movie only made $10 million in the US and grossed a total of about $75 million worldwide (mostly in its native country of Korea), which by all accounts is about what the budget was said to be.

So how does a sequel that nobody is really clamoring for get made? First, writer/director/producer Shim Hyung-rae is clearly a huckster for the ages. No one can deny his hustle. Secondly, and probably most importantly, the $20 million budget will be financed by China, and we should all know by now how much the Chinese really love their dragons.

According to Twitch Film, D-War: Mystery of the Dragon (what an awful title!) begins shooting in May. Despite my numerous suggestions over the years that any sequel should chronicle Brendan Fehr’s incredibly long walk home from wherever the hell he was left stranded at the end of the original film, presumably no one from the original will be back, particularly since the sequel’s plot will be set in 1969 amid the US and Russia’s Cold War space race to the moon. Not sure how ancient Korean dragons fit into that.

One thing is for certain: Getting a Dragon Wars sequel made is one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.


And a spoiler filled look-back on the first "Dragon Wars"...No, I'm not going to call it "D-Wars" for my brain's sake.
