Godzilla Vol 1 12
"The Mega-Monsters from Beyond! Part One: The Beta-Beast!" July 1978
Continued from the previous issue.
As both the Godzilla Squad and Robert in the Red Ronin speed after Godzilla, the King of Monsters is suddenly transported to the Moon. There Godzilla fights a creature known as the Beta-Beast, eventually destroying it with his powerful fire breath.
Following the creature's defeat, Godzilla is confronted by the beings who transported him to the Moon: aliens from the planet Beta. These Betans appeal to Godzilla, telling the monster that their world has been at war against the Megans for centuries, with both sides using giant monsters as weapons against each other. The last battle almost destroyed the Betans but they managed to keep that fact a secret so the Megans still believe the balance of power remains the same. Needing raw materials to continue to fight the Betans, the Megans have sent their three most powerful war-monsters -- Triax, Rhiahn and Krollar -- to Earth in order to plunder it.
With Godzilla accepting the mission, he is transported back to Earth just as the Red Ronin is confronted by the first of the invaders: Triax.
