Monster Week: Giant Ones

Lost & Found



By Otis Frampton. Dinosaurs are sort of giant monsters, right?

The Savage Swarm



By Ed Valigursky.

Le Kong!



I think I prefer the French version.* Thanks to Brother Calvin and his Canadian Cave of Cool for finding this. I have to exercise a lot of willpower in picking what to link to on his site. There's just so much cool stuff. If you like what I'm doing here, you have to be reading Calvin's blog too.

Not only do you get awesome stuff like "Who's Having the Worst Day?"...



...but Calvin also provides an invaluable public service with his constant watchdogging of the evil cephalopodic forces that threaten us all. I'll definitely be linking to some of that in the future. It's too important to ignore.

Speaking of Evil Cephalopodic Forces...

Monster Attack Network movie



Marc Bernardin and Adam Freeman’s giant-monster graphic novel Monster Attack Network is being produced at Disney. If anyone else wants to make a giant monster movie - maybe one where the giant monsters fight giant robots - I've got just the story for you.

*Edited to Add: Christopher Mills has more info on the "French" Kong film in the comments: "That poster is for the Korean-made Kong knock-off A*P*E, which Dino DeLaurentis successfully manged to keep out of U.S. distribution back in 1976, though it played elsewhere around the world. It's horrible."

You're very welcome, Calvin.

Chris, thanks for that! I added it to the post. I would've added the link too, but Firefox is telling me that there's something spooky going on with the site and I might not want to visit there. Not sure what that's about.

Cripes. it looks like all my websites may have been hacked. We fixed Atomic Pulp a few weeks ago, but had no idea that the other ones had been hacked, too. F**kers. Don't they have anything better to do with their pathetic lives?

Dinosaurs are nature's giant monster.
