MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
We all love Science Fiction movies, and the Sci-Fi SyFy Channel does a bang up job with cranking out some of the strangest original sci-fi movies we’ve ever seen.  Take Sharktopus and Gatoroid for example; a giant alligator and a shark-octopus hybrids. Champions both, showcasing the pinnacle of movie storytelling.
But it does bring up an interesting question; If Gatoroid and Sharktopus were put in a tank to fight it out to the death, who would win?
VOTE!

Gatoroid vs. Sharktopus? FIGHT!

Maus
Maus: A Survivor’s Tale, by Art Spiegelman, is a biography of the author’s father, Vladek Spiegelman, a Polish Jew and Holocaust survivor. It alternates between descriptions of Vladek’s life in Poland before and during the Second World War and Vladek’s later life in the Rego Park neighborhood of New York City. The work is a graphic narrative in which Jews are depicted as mice, while Germans are depicted as cats. It is the only comic book ever to have won a Pulitzer Prize.
