Welcome to Mike Podgor’s Monsters of Multimedia. The concept is clear-cut: each post will discuss a different piece of pop culture and discuss the monsters contained within, and we will not be declaring that man is the real monster at any point during this blog. We may suggest that a human being is a monster at one point or another, but efforts will be made to determine why man is not the monster of that particular piece of media. If a monster cannot be found in a piece of media, I will not discuss it unless I really think that someone appearing within is a monster in disguise. Or the monster is the script or gameplay. Those are not humans, and therefore exempt from this rule.
