Barefoot Godzilla

Dr. Hermes has posted a retrospective look at comic artists who’ve drawn Godzilla, complete with scans. Alan Moore was not the Doctor’s favorite:

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.   

Yes, drill down to the largest scan of Godzilla wreaking havoc on a crowded city and in Moore’s intricately-detailed composition you will even see the surprised expressions of people squashed to the bottom of Big G’s foot.

(Not Bambi, though. I checked.)
