Synopsis:
On the last island between Japan and Siberian Russia a group of men meet to discuss their plans to retake Japan. However, what they discover on the island is that it wasn't always uninhabited-- they stumble upon the corpse of a giant moth monster.

Elijah, Drums and Jakita arrive at the Tokyo office of Planetary where Shinya Fukuda explains to them that something has happened on Island Zero. The six Japanese men from earlier in the issue shouldn't be on it and it's up to Planetary to make sure they don't see too much. One of the 6 is shot by their leader and killed, but suddenly the military steps in. However, when one of the soldiers tells them that they can't be allowed to leave, the leader of the group shoots a duffle bag, releasing nerve gas, killing the soldiers and the insurgents. The story ends with Jakita explaining that, somehow, giant monsters appeared on Island Zero after the atomic bomb was dropped but never left the island.
