The Tornado Meets The Sea Beast

This one is from Oh Boy! No.5, which would make it...1949?  Credited, by Denis Gifford as being the work of the late Mick Anglo. Looking at the style there's not that much doubt.

The British had something about cephalopods.  TNT Tom saw off some that wanted to destroy the Earth with a huge bomb and, most famously, in film, it was a giant cephalopod-like alien-human hybrid that invaded Westminster Abbey in the film The Quatermass Experiment (on this occasion Prof. Bernard Quatermass being played by Brian Donlevy -as in Quatermass II).

So long as they are not the Octopoids from Dimension 0K2 who cares?
