For All You Little Monsters!

Who didn't love being a kid in the 1960s -- complete with monster models from Aurora!
And in 1970 or so, Aurora got fancy, with glow-in-the-dark monsters!  The above ad is on the rear cover of the May, 1970 World's Finest #193.
The above ad is from Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #108, cover-dated February 1971.  I regret to inform you that I did not join the Monster Fan Club, darn it!  If you did, I'd love to hear about it!

See you on Monday, fiends and degredations!

You Too Can Be Munster-iffic!

Yes, for the past seventeen zillion Blog-o-Weens we have been wading through Whitman's The Munsters coloring book, and haven't reached the end yet!
Here are pages 101 and 102.

After a thrilling costume party at which Uncle Herman won first prize, Marilyn and her date are, for some reason, taking a tour of the Munsters' attic.

You'll have to wait until later in the month to find out what Marilyn's date is so wacked-out about!

But we'll see you back here on Friday for something else wondrous and/or silly.

Scary Books, Kiddies! - Dalton

Scary Books, Kiddies!

The Cattle Mutilators. By John J Dalton. Manor Books, 1980. No cover credit.

This is the tale of a country doctor who notices a pattern of not only indigent male patients with surgical incisions in the family jewels ... but farmers’ cattle with similar (or worse) damage. At least the four-legged victims are dead!

Evidently this is a pretty rare book, ’cause Amazon folks are selling it for northwards of $50.

Maybe the truth is in here! I couldn’t tell you. I finished reading it on June 24, 1990, and don’t recall anything about it. I got 50 pages into a rereading recently but wasn’t sufficiently motivated to go further.

Talk to you next time, kiddies!
