Filmmaker/filmhistorian/trivia machine Ronald L. Strong goes over his fanatic history digging Kaiju. It’s a delightful journey as well as an aggrivating one thanks to a fair few characters taking hold of the Godzilla franchise in the 80s and onwards. Gamera still rocked though!
Our special guests from the main Kaiju JOF’s get their own spotlight in an interview series (expanding our current JOF into a Kaiju in itself really). Brian Kirby is the head honcho over at Shelf Life Clothing and a passionate Kaiju-fan. We cover original introduction to the genre, Godzilla through the ages and further love directed towards Gamera of the 90s. Here’s the link to Brians Online Store; http://www.shelflifeclothing.com/
