Issue(s): Godzilla #4, Godzilla #5
But the giant monster fights aren't depicted very well, and Godzilla pretty much destroys all the other monsters so there's no chance of a reoccurring 'rogues gallery' of giant Godzilla enemies.
It's a bit of a mistake, i think, to not have pitted Godzilla against all of the classic 50s Marvel monsters which were inspired by the original Godzilla movie. Godzilla vs. Fin Fang Foom! Godzilla vs. Groot! And they also should have tried to create some new monsters in that category as Godzilla villains that could have continued outside of this licensed book.
At least Moench does a good job creating Toho-like names for the new monsters. Batragon and Ghilaron especially sound like they could have come from a Godzilla movie. Lepirax maybe not so much.
Godzilla shows some degree of discretion during the battle, avoiding attacking when it could endanger Dum Dum.
Demonicus feels the need to comment on Gabe Jones' ethnicity...
...resulting in Gabe making a "we shall overcome" reference.
Issue #5 is the first to have a letter column. Of interest is a letter from Bill Wu, who wrote in to like every issue of Master of Kung Fu to (rightly) complain about the coloring. He thanks Marvel for depicting the Asians in this series as not having skin the color of Country Time lemonade.
