Sometime back I wrote a review of Richard Sala's The Hidden for Daily Grindhouse. Since then I've paid a lot of attention to his tumblr. There you'll find rifts on Nosferatu, Batman, and violent Trekkie girls. It's a wonderland of weird. But this Fin Fang Foom is without a doubt the best thing he's ever done...or at least my favorite. The Kaiju with Purple Pants has always haunted my dreamscape. He's a Godzilla knockoff created by Stan Lee & Jack Kirby, for a one-shot issue of Strange Tales, that eventually worked his way into Iron Man's rogues gallery. What's the deal with the purple pants? Did he steal them from the Hulk? I have no idea. But I kinda love them. And when I see modern artists portray the beast without the pants it kinda upsets me. I own two statues of Fin Fang Foom and I'm still waiting for him to make an Avengers movie appearance - Hey! Guardians of the Galaxy is happening!!! So Fin Fang Foom is a total possibility in this mad world we now occupy.
