One of my favorite themes of The Creature from the Black Lagoon is how the gill-man evolved through time in a lost corner of the Amazon. This savage fellow of the Devonian Age is also utterly girl-crazy and spends much of the film chasing after Julia Adams. So it only made sense to me that given a little time, the Creature would evolve to reach outer-space and continue his lustful pursuits to the far reaches of the galaxy. As a result I created the illustration above and mocked it up to appear as if it were an old sci-fi book cover. I think Michael Chabon should write this book and a subsequent screenplan which could be the sequel to the remake which may or may not come out in 2008.
