Welcome back you fiendish monster-loving fans, this weekend our creature feature comes as a special request for our buddy Biff. Of course he chose quite a legend for us to go over this weekend: The Minotaur. While some of the Greek mythological beasts we might talk about in this column are more extraneous, this monster is probably well known by those who have no familiarity with mythology in general. This creature has the head of a bull and the body of a man. It is most famously known for wandering the mazes of a great Labyrinth, and typically not something you wanted to come across while navigating said maze. Let’s see what I could dig up on this iconic creature for this week’s post.
In addition to my adoration of all the creatures from The Dark Crystal, I am also a huge fan of Labyrinth, another amazing Jim Henson movie. I mean, how can you not love David Bowie as the Goblin King?! But since we are talking creatures in this column I wanted to spotlight Ludo this week, one of my favorite creatures in the movie that I would love to have as my own companion.
