Comments for Socksquatch
Socksquatch by Frank W. Dormer is a monster in need of a sock. He may be big and furry but he's got a cold foot. None of his other monster friends (Wayne the Wolfman and Frank the monster) can help him.
Help comes in an unlikely package... a damsel in distress. I love how the usual monster kidnapping a damsel trope stops mid plot point to focus on the much sillier cold foot problem.
Socksquatch uses easy words and short sentences. The monster's dialog reminds me a bit of the Got Milk commercials except he's saying "Got Sock?"
Dormer's comic illustrations go well with the story. The long limbs, use of stripes the odd juxtaposition of colors bring to mind Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas or Corpse Bride.
