Ishiro Honda Bio Being Negotiated

Honda was the director of classic Godzilla movies and other Japanese science-fiction and fantasy films of the 1950s and 1960s beginning with Godzilla in 1954. His last Godzilla movie was Terror of Mechagodzilla (Mekagojira No Gyakushu) in 1975.

Brothers had been working on his book for the past several years and is currently a contributor to G-FAN magazine. He received several nominations for a Rondo Hatton Award for his articles.

He also does some small-theater acting work in his spare time.
