Giant Mechanical Octopus Thursday!

Fresh, pure mechanical octopus goodness from World's Finest #97!

Feast your orbs on the mechanical octopus:



it roller skates!




it flies!




and, whenever possible, it relies on safe, clean mass transportation!

I wish I could say this is the only appearance of the Flying Octopus, but it appeared again in the landmark Superman vs. the Amazing Spider-Man Treasury. I tried to find a scan, but frankly, there are some things that just aren't worth the bother if I don't have them right under my nose.

And keeping in the theme of That Which is Awesome:


Now, on the one hand, 4 feet isn't exactly "gigantic" by anyone's standards, but considering your typical action figure is less than 10 inches, I foresee some bitchin' good times ahead! Sign me up!

See you tomorrow!

If Green Arrow is a rip-off of Batman, where is the Arrow-utility-belt for these sort of situations?

The inflatable latex dinosaurs I can get -

Ceratosaurus
Trachodon
Tyrannosurrus Rex
Armored Demithys
Prosaurolophus
Allosurus
Sea serpent.

There was a dinosuar named Sea Serpent. I didn't know that. Thanks to comics, I learn something new every day.

Why is "burn" in quotes? Burning is exactly what you do with acetylene torches! It's not a pun or figure of speech or anything!
