Monster of the Day #904

Man, that’s nothing but awesome right there.

Again, I don’t know why DC or Marvel or just someone adapting public domain comics doesn’t do a series for SyFy adapting all these crazy stories. It would be better than 95% of their stuff.

Here’s the equally fantastic interior splash page:

  • Ericb

    They should sick this guy on Aquaman.

    Oh, and would a rusty old catapult designed for use in the air be all that effective under water?

  • bgbear_rnh

    besided the drag, there is also the tension of the “spring” material wrapped around the base. I would think water would cause it to slip.

  • bgbear_rnh

    I am sorry, I can only think of the “Sea Devils” as being an earlier generation of the dysfunctional crew of “Sea Lab 2021”.

  • Gamera977

    Are they fighting the octopus dude from ‘Spongebob Squarepants’?

  • bgbear_rnh

    You know they often blame the octopus but, isn’t really the owner who is at fault?

  • Ericb

    He seems to be obeying the undersea leash laws though. Maybe the Devils shouldn’t be trespassing in his garden.

  • sandra

    It seems like these days you can’t even walk your pet octopus without some bunch of scuba divers makign nuisances of themselves.

  • Flangepart

    “You kids get off my lawn…er, kelp bed!”

  • Eric Hinkle

    I love how the octopus looks so utterly bored with the whole thing. “Yes, yes, I’ll eat these pests, can we do something I’d enjoy after that?”

    Oh, and one more thing — let me say ‘thank you!’ to everyone here for the maturity that gets routinely displayed. Given what I’ve seen of late elsewhere? *shudder*

  • Beckoning Chasm

    Is that art by Russ Heath?

  • Rock Baker

    When an underwater giant just isn’t scary enough…..

  • I can’t believe the Sea Devils got their own comic series and not the Silurians. Not fair!

  • Flangepart

    Yup. My favorite DC ‘Rivit man!.’

  • Petoht

    The chain doesn’t seem to be attached to anything… just sort of goes to the same general area of the octopus…
