Great the cover may be (and the story's not bad, either), but I wonder
if the people who created the Blot's daughter were under the impression
that the Blot is some kind of space alien, instead of a human wearing a
black hood. Why else would she be portrayed as a minature version of the
hooded Blot? I can't imagine a loving father, as the Blot is portrayed
in that story, forcing his child to wear a hood at all times!
