Monster of the Day #1081

Well, that octopus clearly just wants to phone home.

Thanks to Jabootu Historian Luke B. for several of this week’s monsters.

    Well, he IS an ‘Extra Terrestrial’ as it were. No land lubber here.

  • Gamera977

    Poor guy, he’s terrified, look at his eyes! He just needs a hug.

    Very cool find Luke!

    Why are the fair bathers swimming right next to sheer rock cliffs in the first place? The octopus is probably just trying to save them from being dashed to pieces by the waves!

    During the editorship if the infamous Richard Kyle Fox.

    Interesting… a (strangely popular) niche was more mainstream over a hundred years ago… Have we gotten more prudish? Or maybe just more well-defined?

  • Flangepart

    Hummm…could be Dover. No…no one named Ben there I know of…

  • kgb_san_diego

    Actually, the octopus is just singing “I see England, I see France…”

  • Luke Blanchard

    Thanks for the kind words. I think I stumbled on the cover when I was looking for the origin of the images in Monster of the Day #112 recently. I added a post to the thread on that subject. Note that that the octopus has actually grabbed three of the women.

  • Eric Hinkle

    Wow but that is one goofy-looking octopus.

  • Eric Hinkle

    Infamous for what? Seriously asking here, I know zip about the man.
