About Matt Frank

Since 2011, Matt Frank has been known in both Japan and America as the “Kaiju King,” becoming the fan-favorite artist for all things giant and monstrous! Although he had been drawing since he was very young, Matt became a true professional artist somewhere between 2005 and 2008. His first official foray into the Godzilla franchise was as a cover artist for Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters for IDW Publishing, and he continued to make covers for Godzilla: History’s Greatest Monster in 2012. By 2013, he headlined the 25 issue series, Godzilla: Rulers of Earth, the longest running Godzilla comic ever published, as a story co-developer, cover artist, and lead interior artist, and the series became an instant classic among fans. Though Godzilla will always be his first love, Matt is also an accomplished Transformers artist, beginning with The Beast Wars Sourcebook as a character illustrator, and also providing interiors for Transformers Animated: The Rise of Safeguard, Transformers Spotlight: Trailcutter, Mars Attacks the Transformers, and numerous titles for both IDW and Fun Publications.In an exciting turn of events, Godzilla: Rulers of Earth was launched in Japan in late 2016 to a newfound fan base who eagerly embraced it, making it the first of IDW’s Godzilla titles to have a Japanese language edition, with new collaboration covers by Matt and various Japanese artists!  In recent years Matt has found himself in the unique position of an American artist becoming well known for working on Japanese properties on both sides of the Pacific. In late 2017, Matt officially began working for the legendary Tsuburaya Productions by adapting the cult classic hero Redman into a new comic form, published in Japan by Phase 6 and released in America by Night Shining Inc. Matt also finally got to create a new Gamera comic story as part of a Japanese release of the classic Dark Horse Gamera comics from the 90’s. In 2018 and 2019, Matt has also added Power Rangers comic covers and Adventure Time to his list of credentials, as well as an officially licensed Tsuburaya Sketchbook, featuring approved Ultraman artwork! He is currently working on multiple projects for Tsuburaya Productions for distribution in both America and Japan. Matt was the main artist on the Gamera Complete Collection from Arrow Video in 2020.
