Jul 05, 2017 No Comments by

Greetings, monster maniacs! Among my many areas of scientific expertise is the arcane study of kaijuology. This is the discipline devoted to the examination of giant city-wrecking monsters, particularly those centered on the isle of Japan.

Your old pal Dr. Mality likes to dabble in many branches of science, but robotics holds a special place in my blackened heart. I don’t know how many hours I’ve slaved in the lab trying to whip up nefarious automatons to do my will. The lawn mowing robot was a real disaster and it looks […]
