“Mothra: Power of the Protector” in Women With Guts (Rue Morgue, 2017)
“To me, the Godzilla films were always symbolic of the need to rebuild in the wake of destruction. I don’t think it’s a surprise that I fell in love with Godzilla immediately after my parents’ divorce. And in hindsight, it’s not surprising that this love reappeared as an adult when I was figuring out how to leave an abusive relationship.”
“Mothra: Power of the Protector” is a love letter to Mothra and Godzilla films.
