The Glob!

Blob Puppets
The Glob, merrily eating it's way through Midtown Central City.

Cement is surprised by another monster, one that bears a strong resemblance to the American kaiju, the massive Blob. This "Glob" busily dissolves people and buildings and is eventually confronted by the ARC equipped military forces. It/they are smashed up into smaller parts by Cement. The scene features Cement, Miette and ARC troopers and the Glob.

There's two principles (Miette, Cement) plus 1 Kaiju (Glob) plus misc. ARC soldiers (7-12 of them firing ARC's) and tanks (3-4) to animate here. That's a total of like 14-19 plates spinning around at once, minus the flames and smoke!

In the script, the Glob bellows when hit by small arms fire or by Cement - like a heavy bass meant to rock small film fest theaters. Each time one of the globs are hit they sound off as a herd with the bass's pitch and volume relative to the size of each glob. The "central" and largest "main" glob would always be the deepest sounding bass with the smaller globs sounding different in pitch.

The Glob began life as a wee sketch in my trusty sketchbook. It was a fun monster from the start. I really enjoyed movies like Pixar's Monsters Inc. (2001) and Dreamwork's Monsters vs. Aliens (2009) and their usage of blobs and glob-like creatures. I think that I introduced the Glob in 2008 but it is also clearly of a product of The Blob both the late 50's and 80's versions.

The Glob is chapter one in forthcoming editions of Puppets. The actions starts up as a lone monster roams the streets.
