From Mike’s Desk
This comic may not make any sense. It is actually a continuation of the other M.I.F.C. comics these many months later. For the truly interested parties, just click on the MIFC tag below and you can read the other comics. Eventually, if Joe and I finish the story line, I’ll post all the comics together in some sort of compendium.
When I saw The Monster That Challenged the World (1957), directed by Arnold Laven, briefly featured in Joe Dante’s Piranha (1978), I decided to check it out. For late 50’s sci-fi, it is pretty good. The monster are actually monsters, slugs to be exact, in The Monster That Challenged the World. The movie comes on a double DVD with It! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958), directed by Edward L. Cahn. It! The Terror From Beyond Space was a massive influence on Ridley Scott’s Alien (1979). While Alien drew from a number of sources, like A. E. van Vogt’s The Voyage of the Space Beagle (1950), It! The Terror From Beyond Space really is Alien, man in a rubber suit and all.
Q: Why didn’t Link go to Applebees?
