Mayhaps he’ll gum them to death? Cullen Waters One of the great crimes of cinema is that there never will be a Fifties Monster movie with this guy as the lead. Gamera977 So begins our sad tale as the entire tribe was devoured as Apache Chief and Aquaman argued over whose responsibly it was to save them… AM: It’s a aquatic monster so I should help them. AC: But these are my people. AM: Your people? They’re Cherokee! AC: So!?! And it’s a fresh water monster, not an ocean creature! AM: Go smoke a peace pipe! AC: Go kiss a cuttlefish! Green Lantern: Hey morons, the monsters eaten half the tribe, what are you two waiting for!?! Flangepart “MEANwhile, back at the hall of justice…” Cullen Waters If I might be allowed to continue… AC: I don’t know, Green Lantern. What are we waiting for? AM: Yeah, that doesn’t look like a yellow monster to me. AC: You work for the BLUE SKINS, you help out the ORANGE SKINS…. GL: Aw, come on, guys! Don’t I get enough of that from Green Arrow? Green Arrow: FASCIST! bgbear_rnh The worm turns bgbear_rnh What happened the “sexy” covers here? If it is warm enough for the men to be wearing loin cloths, why is Poccachips dress head to toe in buckskin? Ericb She must be a Victorian Indian. Gamera977 Meanwhile back at the Hall of Justice, Superman picks up the phone… ‘Hello… yeah.. well Batman recorded last nights big game and he, Black Vulcan, Flash, and I are sitting here watching it… yeah we figured Aquaman and Apache Chief could handle it, Green Lantern went along to babysit them… SAY WHAT!?! So Lantern took off to get a burrito and left those two clowns in charge!?!… hold on, HEY WONDER WOMAN, ARE YOU REAL BUSY RIGHT NOW!?! Gamera977 And so the prophecy is fulfilled of ‘The Coming of Gummy the Sock Puppet’ that would be the end of our tribe… Rock Baker Okay, that’s the creepiest thing I’ve seen in a long while…. The Rev. I actually saw this one in a book as a lad. “The (Illustrated?) Encyclopedia of Monsters,” I think. I checked it out a few times from the local library, as you can imagine. I learned about a lot of monsters in that one years before I saw the movies (or still haven’t, in the case of, for instance, Slithis, although I found that one on the Roku and have it pegged for future watching). Unfortunately I don’t remember this monster’s name at the moment. bgbear_rnh Is it supposed to be Ogopogo? Beckoning Chasm That really does look like a sock puppet. And the structure to the right looks like a shoulder. And now I’m imagining the artist…”Okay, honey, now raise the oven mitt just so, like it’s bursting from the water! Yeah, like that!” Eric Hinkle Am I the only one getting a ‘Turok: Son of Stone’ vibe from this cover? Sandy Petersen another mitten-puppet monster – no doubt a relative of The Sea Serpent.
