Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 8.89 out of 10)

    The kind of giant monster rip-off that needs a packet of Chewits.

  2. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @THX 1139: I really can’t tell from his expression whether he’s enjoying his candy or its just making him more mad. Perhaps it’s his lack of ears which is the true source of his wrath.

    If a giant ape sets your city ablaze, is it a Kongflagration?

    The hat needs a spike

    You have to admit that the building that Cong is wielding has some pretty impressive structural integrity.

    “Oh no! They tow Kong car!”

    Beast angry. Need more candy. Giant Pez dispenser empty.

  9. Bibliomancer Says:

    Beast angry at whoever created him in lab.
    Dick pull right off. Shoddy workmanship.

  10. Francis Boyle Says:

    Beast angry mad scientist added size to head not dick.

  11. GSS ex-noob Says:

    That was one damn big laboratory to fit that Beast into!

    Would hatless, earless Beast calm down if he didn’t eat so many sweets?

    @fred: GSS!

  12. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @fred: nice find. Although the blurb does raise further questions. “Strategic potential?” Are we talking about the military use of giant apes? (So WWIII will be renamed “The War of the Gargantuas.”)

    @Tat Wood: Of course he would be a product of _German_ mad science, wouldn’t he? After all, comics have long warned us of the close association between Nazi mad scientists and super gorillas.

    “Kong can’t eat this building! Building not gluten-free!”
