Stocktober • The Creature from the Black Lagoon

Tony here with the Gill-man! Yes! Talk about famous monsters. This film is awesome!  Underwater diving with Gill-man and filmed so clear.  I have seen this film a few times and absolutely love the horror and tragedy. I think the best part about him though, has to be the amazing costume design.  This concludes my six Universal Studios monster movies done as sketch cards. What a great time I had this year, hopefully next year I can come up with another fun theme.

Stocktober • The Mummy

Tony here with another Boris Karloff gem. He portrayed “the mummy” in another Universal Classic.  I have personally never seen this film, but intend to. Here is a clip I have illustrated representing Karloff in Mummy form.

Stocktober • Frankenstein

What I consider to be the most recognizable and famous of all the monsters. Frankenstein’s monster himself. Boris Karloff, a man of a thousand faces does an amazing job showing emotion through a stiff burly monster. This will always be my go-to Frankenstein monster.

Stocktober • Bride of Frankenstein

Tony back again with a personal favorite of the Universal monsters. The Bride of Frankenstein. I consider one of the greatest spinoffs of all time. It’s more than just a monster movie, check it out.

Stocktober • Wolfman

Once again, Halloween season is here, and another year of Stocktober greatness over at Stockpilecomics.tumblr.com.  For the past 4 years we have posted our horror favorites. Every year I think about doing the Universal Studios monsters, and finally this is the year! So I plan to pull famous scenes from the films themselves and to put the black bars at top and bottom of them to make them feel cinematic.

I start with the iconic Wolfman. The thing I love most about this version of him is that he is literally a wolf-man. Sometimes werewolf movies make them as actual wolves.  This has charm to it!  So stay tuned as I post the rest of my Universal Monsters!
