A much better monster representation

Both horrifying *and* terrifying!
Not who you'd expect tentacle art from

This is the Creature from the Black Lagoon with his quarry, drawn by the the American comics artist Bill Everett (1917-1973) who was the creator of Namor the Submariner and, I just discovered to my pleased surprise cobbling together this post, also a descendant of William Blake. The image has been reblogged from this 4 July 2015 post at Infernal Wonders.

  1. Oh wow! At the image AND the information. I think I eye elements of the Submariner style burning bright in that piece.

  2. And did those flippers in ancient time
    Plop upon England’s mountains green?
    And was the holy fish of god
    On England’s pleasant pastures seen?
