The Creature From The Black Lagoon

Art © the estate of Dave Cockrum
The artist Dave Cockrum passed away late last year. This illo of his from an old 1975 issue of "Monsters Unleashed" of one of the more famous fictional Devonian critters is a belated tip of the hat to him.

I was prompted to post this thanks to our friends over at the *new* Atomic Surgery blog who have posted an old Mechanix Illustrated article on how The Creature's costume was created.
