I have to say this, the monsters in Part One of this feature were all fine and dandy but I can't help feeling Stan and Jack excelled themselves when they came up with today's selection.
So, without further ado, let's take a look at the nightmare creatures of Tales of Suspense!
Only the other day, we experienced the terror of Goom! Now it turns out there's a son of Goom.
Presumably that means there's a Mrs Goom.
What a lovely picture of domestic bliss that knowledge conjures up.
I think I read this in one of Marvel's 1970s monster reprint mags. Possibly Where Monsters Dwell or some such. If I remember right, Kraa was on the cover, fighting a giant python.
The Green Thing? I do fear Stan wasn't quite putting the effort in when he came up with that name. He could have at least honoured Marvel monster naming etiquette and called it The Ggreen Thingg!
Still, it is at least a timely reminder to not inflict substance abuse upon your cauliflowers.
"This is Klagg!"
I'm saying nothing.
Et tu, Bruttu?
Poor old Monstrollo. Not only does he die but he seems to be named after a packet of small, round chocolates.
This is definitely my favourite-looking monster of today's batch.
What an Oogie mess.
Oog, doing his impersonation of the ice warrior in tonight's Dr Who story.
Help! Help! They've made a monkey out of Dr Doom!
Hold on a moment. The Man in the Beehive? This all looks strangely familiar.
What he wants to do is get himself a cybernetic helmet, a rich girlfriend and call himself Bee-Man. He'll be a hero unlike any other.
