Comments: Created by an unnamed writer and Steve Ditko.
As with many 1950's and 1960's Marvel monster stories,
this story is not confirmed as part of Earth-616 continuity, but there's
nothing to exclude it either.

It was mentioned in the story that the natives near Quogg's valley thought he was a demon, but they may have been mistaken. Personally I believe Quogg was an extraterrestrial stranded on Earth.
Hmm...so what appeared to be a simple hut was actually Quogg -- since he had the appearance of a type of dwelling, I wonder if Quogg could have some connection with House and the House of Shadows? Could they all possibly be members of...The Brotherhood of Bogus Bungalows?!!
Thanks to Meatbag Pool for pointing out his appearance in Monsters Unleashed II#2-3.
