Genre Movie Image of the Day: The Amazing Colossal Man Poster!
You know, as a kid, I thought this movie was great. Then again, you know how I feel about movies in which things become giant-sized! As an adult, I realize how cheesy it really is (and even more fun to watch the MST3K ep with it featured), but it's still an enjoyable movie to watch!
If you ever read Tony Isabella's "IT! The Living Colossus" stories in the 1970s Marvel Comics (sorry, Tony, I forget off-hand where it appeared... was it Astonishing Tales?), you may find the pose here a bit familiar. There were a few issues in which the artist (and again, I'm forgetting his name... being exhausted plays havoc on the brain, you know!) appeared to use this and other references from this movie for inspiration for a few poses!
Now I just wish I had the books handy here to compare, because I'm positive this pose in particular was used!
