Square Eyed Stories #12
(2001) Ed. Jim McGee

Zip Gun Presents: Japan!!
(2001) Ed. David Goodman

The third and final Gastro story. There will be no more, the joke has worn itself out.

Angkro is derived from Anguirus, or possibly Gamera. Birdan is Rodan, while MechaGastro was inspired by (ha ha) MechaGodzilla. Gastro derives his name from Guardian, Astro (of Space).

SES #12 and ZGP: Japan!! featured all 3 Gastro stories.
