The Ugly Truth (Pages 6, 7, and 8)

A trio of beasties from a trio of cartoonists.  I suspect Duane Ballenger’s addition to my sketchbook is inspired by the monstrous infant from the 1974 horror film It’s Alive, but I can’t be sure because I’ve never seen the movie.  I steer clear of horror whenever possible for the simple reason that even a quick glimpse of a scary movie will result in bouts of ruinous nightmares.  An indicator of how skittish I am: I watched twenty minutes of the 2005 House of Wax remake, and I couldn’t sleep for two nights.  And that movie starred Paris Hilton.  Nevertheless, even after a lifetime spent hiding under my bed, I feel relatively certain that Justin Gammon’s entry is an update of the title monster from 1954’s Creature from the Black Lagoon.  I haven’t seen that film either, but somehow the monster’s appearance reached my brain through the pop-culture ether.
