And we're back! I'll be updating weekly on Thursdays for time time being.

Yep, our villain is none other than Ro-Man Extension XJ-9 from the 1953 sci-fi cheesefest Robot Monster! I did promise I was going to use an "infamous villain" in my next story, and the infamously cheap space helmet on a gorilla suit does qualify!

Written by the none-too-famous Wyott Ordung, who later directed and starred as Pablo in Roger Corman's first SF schlocker, "Monster from the Ocean Floor"

Good stuff you've got here, Jay. ;)

Thanks! I've always had a soft spot for Ro-Man, so turning him into a decent villain seemed like a fitting use.

It's Cheeta in disguise. Trying to get back on screen after Tarzan went off the air.

Robot Monster! So that's the title! I've been looking for this since I saw some Art Adams drawings of him and some other 50s sci-fi schlock creatures.
Sorry for the necro-comment but I'm just reading this now, and loving it!

No problems! I know get a few folks binging on the gallery on occasion, and it's nice to hear from them.
