The Ominous Octopus

Tuesday, August 30, 2016


This SUB-MARINER story involves a giant crocodile, something related to the monster movies that were popular at the time. The crocodile is called "King Crocodile" because of KING KONG, the original movie having been re released in 1952 to renewed popularity. King Crocodile cries real crocodile tears, although then again they're not really crocodile tears, since they appear to have been sincere. Unlike King Kong, King Crocodile lives happily ever after. Art is by Bill Everett, the creator of the SUB-MARINER. Originally published in 1954.
