About this product
- DescriptionThe kids' comic classic, designed by SethThe ghoulish capers of everyone's favorite monster continue with the third volume of the acclaimed series. Melvin lands his first babysitting job only to discover he has his hands full, literally the baby in this case is a giant monster, almost the size of a room. When Melvin meets his friend for a friendly game of marbles, an older monster-woman passing by is offended by the scene, as everybody in Monsterville kws that monsters should always fight when they're together. Finally, she is content only after forcing the two monsters into a scrap. Melvin also attempts to be the first kid in Monsterville to attend school in more than six hundred years, but he is thwarted each time by Miss McGargoyle, his would-be teacher. He is threatened with boulders, giant boomerangs, and even long-range missiles, but thing can stop Melvin from wanting to go to school every day. Melvin Monster illustrates just how timeless the comics of John Stanley are.
- Author BiographyJohn Stanley was a journeyman comics scripter in the 1950s and 1960s. He is most famous for his scripts for most of the Little Lulu comics produced by Dell and is considered by many comics historians to be the most consistently funny and idiosyncratic writer to ever work in comics. He left comics bitterly sometime in the late 1960s, never to return. He died in 1993.
