100 Days Of The King - Day 71

The Monster from the Lost Lagoon is a really scary addition to the Kirby canon. Appearing in a single issue of the Fantastic Four, he really is a nifty variation on the classic Creature from the Black Lagoon.

Kirby and Lee had tapped into the classic Universal imagery before in a story featuring Triton of the Inhumans.

  1. "Appearing in a single issue of the Fantastic Four..."

    I could be wrong, but didn't he come back around #124 or thereabouts?

    1. You're right, but I guess I was thinking of the way Marvel did stories at the time (single issues only) and that this was the only time Kirby drew him. When he came back Big John Buscema was in command.
