From the weird worlds of H.P. Lovecraft to the Lands of the Lost, the archetypical lizardman has long captured the minds of humanity.  One of the classic monsters, the scaly bugger has vexed no lesser lights than Spider-Man, James T. Kirk and even you first-level AD&D cleric, always with the claws and the teeth and the hisssssing sssspeech impedimentssss.  Even Cobra Commander took a turn, presuming you’re not too specific in your herpetological nomentclature, leading to today’s cold-blooded-but-not-in-the-usual-way query…

About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
