Issue #20

With Dugan on the Docks! is the nineteenth issue of Marvel's Godzilla, King of the Monsters. It was released on February 1979.


Robert and Godzilla emerge from the sewer systems of New York. Godzilla is now roughly six feet tall. Rob tries to keep him calm and Godzilla seems receptive to Rob's pleas. Rob even finds a trench-coat and hat to obscure Godzilla's features as they try to hide in the back alleyways. Two muggers try to accost him, but Godzilla shreds through his disguise and sends them running after he blasts them with his fire breath.

Later, Rob and Godzilla encounter Dugan's team on the docks. Dugan tries to fire a tranquilizer dart, but Gabe Jones, believing that Dugan was firing an actual gun, spoils his shot. Godzilla fires his breath, but Dugan deflects it with a trash can lid. He then picks up a pole arm and rushes to Godzilla, but Godzilla easily disarms him. Failing that, Dugan tries fisticuffs, but Godzilla backhands him, sending Dugan sprawling. Gabe leaps on Godzilla's back, but Godzilla snaps his head forward, sending Gabe flying off the ledge of the dock. While Godzilla's attention is focused on Jones, Dugan attacks him from behind with a drop-kick. Gabe climbs back up onto the dock, but Godzilla grabs him with both claws and pitches him into the water. Turning, he punches Dugan in the face, knocking him to the ground. Godzilla lumbers off into the night and Rob screams "Come back!", but Godzilla doesn't heed him. Godzilla is alone and loose in the streets of New York. A look of consternation crosses Dugan's face as he realizes that Pym's shrinking formula is quickly wearing off.
