Monster of the Day #1084

B-Fest Weekend! Picked up my friend Jeff last night, soon getting Galaxy Jane and the Rev from the airport, then off to the L&L for breakfast. Have a great day, everyone.

Oh, Dr. Strange, what mischief will you get up to next? I don’t know what you did, but that squid is pissed.

    Why do they always have to make cephalopods look like they are angry. I think the blank stares of real cephalopods are a lot more creepy.

    Mr. Marvel, Mr. Disney on line 1

    Not angry, he’s just frowning cause he’s concentrating really hard!

    He has a very Zoidberg look to him.

    The issue was a colourised reprint of the Pendulum Press adaptation, but with a new cover by Gil Kane and Dan Adkins. It’s signed on the hull below Nemo.

    In the novel the Nautilus is attacked by a group of giant “poulpes”, when the crew go out to fight them one of Nemo’s men is taken, and Ned Land is knocked down and nearly killed, but saved by Nemo. In the adaptation one of the “octopusses” (as it calls them) grabs Land, and Nemo saves him. I think the cover’s imagery of Nemo being lifted was likely inspired by the Disney movie.

    “Oh, so I look Zoidish. I got your Zoidish right here, fella!”

    Don’t know why I didn’t immediately spot Kane’s work. Nemo’s legs are classic Gil Kane.

    This being a Marvel Comics adaptation I half expect to see Sub-Mariner guiding the attack. “Teach the arrogant air-breathers what it means to challenge the mighty PRINCE NAMOR, my pet!”

    Then again I was wondering if Senior Tempter Screwtape in the Marvel Comics version of THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS (and yes, they really did this) would look like Mephisto.
