The Boys from Derby: "The Kilgore Monster" by Cuti and Sutton

What it is, Groove-ophiles! Hey, there's nothing like kicking off a new week with a classic monster mini-masterpiece from a couple'a favorite Boys from Derby, is there? Yeah, Ol' Groove thought you'd dig that! So, from Monster Hunters #16 (July 1978; originally presented in Midnight Tales #8, April 1974), here's "The Kilgore Monster" by Nick Cuti and Tom Sutton!


  1. Wow, that's a nice little story. However, I have to say that it's really elevated by Sutton's art into something spectacular.

  2. Sutton's art works well for this compressed Moby Dick riff, with a twist that takes an ocean full of suspension of disbelief and the concept of scale to swallow! Not a bad little post-code monster tale.
