Scaling giant monsters is always a tricky problem for filmmakers (and I don’t mean putting all the scales on them…hello? This thing on? Never mind).  A famous example is the original King Kong; when originally conceived for the film, Kong was about eighteen feet and appears as such during his scenes on “Skull Island”.  When it came time to send Kong to New York, however, the formerly gigantic ape suddenly didn’t look so gigantic anymore.  Director Merian C. Cooper lamented, “He isn’t big enough!” as Kong was dwarfed by the city structures and, in a lapse of continuity, Kong suddenly increased in size (as for how big he grew, accounts vary. Some folks say twenty-five feet, some thirty, some whatever).

I mention this to shift the blame to someone else for my own mistakes to point out just how difficult it is to deal with giant monsters.  Godzilla’s size varies as wildly as one hundred to five hundred feet, depending on who you ask.

This is all brought up because I have to confess, I never gave a helluva lot of thought to just how big the Behemoth truly is (don’t be a perv).  It’s BIG. That’s all I can say.  In fact, it seems to have gotten bigger in today’s installment, meaning there must have been some secret doohickey installed in the robot that makes him…bigger.  Maybe.

Well, what can I say? Usually cartoonists just have to watch out for typos in their comics.  Me, I get to spend my nights whining over just how big a robot dinosaur is supposed to be when it’s smashing a city.  Yeah, you want my kind of problems.
