Monster of the Day #1378

Well, somebody‘s a hell of an architect. And, uh, yeah, that sure would doom us, all right. Oh, no! Monstroso! Don’t go and destroy Congress and the EU next! That would surely doom Mankind. Boy, I sure hope you don’t decide to do that!

  • For those who find this image familiar, this splash page mirrors that of the cover shown on MotD #1144. I think it’s been redrawn or maybe reinked, as there’s differences between the two beyond the coloring. Thus not a real repeat, but in the ball park.

    I thought it looked familiar. So can Monstroso change colours like a chameleon? Not sure camouflage is that useful when you’re larger than the UN building.

  • Eric Hinkle

    ‘Monsteroso’? I think the House of Ideas was running short by this point, at least where monster names were concerned.

    Amount of time the UN will take to link increased Monsteroso attacks to global warming?

  • bgbear_rnh

    next week, “Maestroso” the conductor of destruction!

  • Gamera977

    Maybe I could be Turtleroso?

  • Flangepart

    2.26 seconds. Same time between the glow of his fins, and Godzilla then breathing fire.

  • bgbear_rnh

    I could be OsoOso.

  • Rock Baker

    That doesn’t really resemble the UN building…. Given the frequency with which the structure is demolished, they must have a Japanese construction/repair crew on standby.

  • Eric Hinkle

    I love how we see someone shooting at Monsteroso with a .38 revolver. That guy must be one heck of an optimist.

  • Chris Metzinger

    That’s such a common item in these kinds of pictures! Small/medium caliber weapons being fired, usually at baffling angles, while a thirty story monster is approaching. Maybe it’s just an in-thing. Like the Wilhelm scream…

  • Marsden

    Judging by the size of the building, I don’t even think that the monster is in the pistol’s range!

  • The moment that guy runs out of bullets, he’s going to throw his gun at Monsteroso.

  • Chris Metzinger

    :D Thank you. You made my night…

  • Acethepug

    Is it wrong to be cheering Monsteroso (no doubt Monstro’s non-union Mexican equivalent) on in his endeavors? I can’t see how destroying the UN is a bad thing.
