Godzilla: Rulers of Earth (issue #1) is the first issue in the Godzilla: Rulers of Earth comic book series released on June 19, 2013. Zilla (in the form of the character's second incarnation IDW Zilla) makes an appearance in this issue.
The expected release of this first issue was set to be June 19 but it was delayed until June 26. This issue includes "Chapter 1: In the Court of the King". The comic starts with a giant creature being discovered on a radar and which is presumed to be either Godzilla or a new species, and presumably this is the very first reference to Zilla in the comic. Later, during a Megazoology Conference in Honolulu, Hawaii, Zilla enters a beach and instantly cause panic and destcruction. The human military defense and their high tech weapons are seemingly useless against the creature, and while they try to fight the creature and lead civilians into safety, suddenly Godzilla appears on the scene. An official description by IDW of the first issue said:
|“||In the wake of the climactic conclusion of Godzilla #13 comes a brand new series! Dozens of new monsters have risen from the depth and are staking out their own territory, regardless of humanity’s political borders! A war of dominance beings... will Godzilla end up on top? First he’ll have to beat a new upstart... Zilla!||„|
