Do you love monsters?

Do you love monsters?
Is there anything better than monsters? I mean not just scary monsters, either. Aliens and Hellraiser are great and all, but I love monsters of all types.

Jason Powell Talks Chris Claremont's X-Men
Geek Genie caught up with author Jason Powell on the release of his book "The Best There is at What He does - Examining Chris Claremont's X-Men" released by Sequart.   GG: Hi Jason. Congratulations on the release of your book! What made you want to write a book specifically about the Claremont run in X-Men? JP: Well I guess that my love of the X-Men is really tied to that particular run by Chris Claremont. I was lucky enough to be given a collection of comic books from my Uncle which had a good mix of Marvel comics (although he refused to give up his Spidey books!). I discovered the X-Men at the same time that the X-Men cartoon series was also taking off and so I really wanted to find out more about these chracters.  GG: Claremont's run is legendary for its soap opera and length of run.
