Thing of the Week: Modern Mythical Monsters [day 1]

Or, Legendary Creatures….They’re Just Like Us!


Related…here’s a list of mythical creatures from Wikipedia.  Do not read unless you want nightmares.  Some of these are stone cold FREAKY, yo!  A couple of examples:

Abura-akago (Japanese) – Oil-drinking infant

Blemmyae (Medieval Bestiary) – Headless humanoid with face in torso

Chonchon (Mapuche) – Disembodied, flying head

Oh, it goes on…and on.

See ya manyana!

    hmm.. you still have no face.

  3. Well, I know what I’m doing for the next half-hour while my paper goes unfinished. (But seriously, I expect to recognize a few names on this list from my mythical beasts phase when I was 15… yeah.) I’m so glad I found this blog again! I met you very briefly at the Comic Con in Bethesda last October and (hopefully) will be presenting some of my own work there this fall (and have decided to stalk this website in the least-creepy way possible)… your stuff is always awesome and amusing!
