Verity! Episode 48 – Designing Monsters

VerityEpisode48-210Welcome to an aesthetically-oriented episode of Verity! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we take a look at monsters/aliens/villains from a design perspective. Which baddies look great? Which don’t? Does a fleshed-out back story that dovetails with the design help or hinder? And of course, we save time for our most (and least!) favorites! It’s a fascinating discussion that almost breaks Deb at one point–not every DW design choice was a wise one. Sometimes a cape in and of itself *is* the superhero.

What do you think of monster design? Do you have favorites or ones you think work well? Poorly? Let us know in the comments!
