Japanese Suitmation shows produced some of the creepiest looking monster costumes ever. Maybe it was all that nuclear bombing seeping into the collective pop culture, but WOW... look at these freaky yokai-ish Phantom Army mutants from the 1973/74 series Inazuman! Yikers! F.Y.I., Inazuman went through a moth-like transformation... first entering a pupal stage called "Sanagiman" by weaving a coccoon around himself. Sanagiman has limited powers and must wait until the power gauge on his belt powers up to full. At that point, he poses and yells the command, "Choriki Shorai!" (Super Powers Summoned), the pupa explodes, and reveals the mighty Inazuman underneath. Yessir... even the good guys were kinda gross!
Mister Kitty's got a great thing going with his Stupid Comics site. 'Head' on over to see Electro batttle a two headed monster and some filthy rich zombies.

If you're ever out near Marsh's free museum in Long Beach, Washington, be sure to drop in and say hello to my pal Jake the Alligator Man. He may be dead, but he's still likes a little company. Who is Jake, you might ask? Well, no less an authority than The Weekly World News said, "Scientists call bizarre creature the Missing Link." But Sideshow World has the full scoop... "A lot of folks claim Jake was a valet in a New Orleans whorehouse. Others say that Jake was a sideshow freak who smoked cigars and could nod yes or no to simple questions when asked. There have even been people that stopped by to visit Jake that say they've seen him alive in a Texas carnival. Out of all the curiosities found in Marsh's Free Museum Jake the Alligator Man is the most amazing."

NEWSFLASH!-- A real-life 'Wererabbit' is on the loose in Felton, England, just in time for Easter. From the BBC: "Sharp-shooters have been brought in to defend allotment patches in Northumberland suffering from a real-life "curse of the were-rabbit". The ravenous giant rabbit, named after the famed Wallace and Gromit character, is reported to have ripped up dozens of prize-winning leeks and turnips." No, really.
If you're anything like me, you've always wanted to be attacked by a rampaging Yeti. Now you can! Expedition Everest opened in Disney's Animal Kingdom earlier this month, and, "...unlike any other roller coaster, tracks ripped to shreds force the ride to an abrupt hault. Then, backward you plunge along a new course as the great Yeti, a mere shadow at first, takes over the ride. And before you step off, you'll whiz by a mammoth-size replica of the beast."
