A monster problem requires a monster solution — and when it comes to the clash between iconic monsters Godzilla and King Kong, it’s going to take the world’s greatest superheroes to save the day.

In a surprise announcement on day one of San Diego Comic-Con, DC and Legendary Comics in partnership with Toto International have announced a seven-issue crossover miniseries titled Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong.

In the series, a mission to apprehend the Legion of Doom goes wrong, weakening the walls between realities and allowing the Monsterverse — the canonical continuity that includes the movies Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island, and Godzilla vs. Kong — to invade the DCU.

Brian Buccellato and Christian Duce are the creative team for the series. “I’ve had the good fortune to write most of the legendary DC Super Heroes before—from my time on The Flash, Detective Comics, and Injustice. This time I get to build something way larger-than-life using all the toys in two different sandboxes. It’s such a thrill to tear open both the DC Universe and Legendary’s Monsterverse for this dream project,” Buccellato said in a statement about the series, adding that Duce and color artist Luis Guerrero are “perfect partners in this oversize endeavor. Christian has been masterful in his navigating the story’s enormous scope in terms of character moments, rampaging monsters, and big superhero action. And Luis’s stunning palette and rendering are an amazing complement to Christian’s art.”

“There have been a couple of classic crossovers since I started reading comics: Superman vs. The Amazing Spider-Man, The Uncanny X-Men and the New Teen Titans—and we hope Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong joins that list of unforgettable meetings,” Robert Napton, SVP & Publisher, Legendary Comics, said in his own statement. “I am grateful to everyone at DC, Legendary Entertainment, and Toho International for the passionate support we received to have these worlds collide!”

More information about the crossover will be given during DC’s Jim Lee & Friends panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday at 6 PM in room 6A, as well as Legendary Comics: From Monsterverse to Dune and Beyond panel on Saturday at 3 PM in room 28DE, the publishers tease. For now, take a look at what kind of carnage and action to expect from the series when it launches in October, via the gallery below.
