Monsters in My Pocket
A few friends and I were recently sitting around and talking about old action figures we had when we were kids. We talked about Visionaries, Super Naturals, Battle Beasts, and others. Finally, we got around to talking about Monster in My Pocket. As a confirmed monster fanatic, Monster in My Pocket was obviously a favorite of mine, and it's the first place I ever heard of several monsters, including the Baba Yaga, who I was later to get to know much better via Hellboy.
Upon revisiting, I found that Monster in My Pocket had a surprising array of often obscure monsters from folklore, cryptozoology, and fiction. Way more than I'd remembered, or probably would have given them credit for. It's actually a pretty good source for unusual creatures, and it's interesting to see the artistic interpretation of some of them, and also to see the (seemingly arbitrary) numerical rating they were given to measure their power compared to other monsters. Sort of makes me want to try to seek out a collection of them somewhere, and I certainly spent too much time on the Internet looking through galleries of them.
