Drawn and Quarterly just put out their third collection of John Stanely's Melvin Monster collection. There were only nine issues of Melvin, the tenth being a reprint of the fist. But I loved John Stanley'w work and his Melvins were replete with the kind of stuff he did so well. Here's a Melvin story I did just for fun and to see if I could do it. And of course as a tribute to Melvin and Mister Stanley.

Why comics are so much better now. Or were anyway... from the legendary COMIC BOOK NERD (from www.twomorrows.com if you wanna get one)... This was in disgusted reaction to the mania for Image comics and their ilk. Ugh. Actually this version differs in some respects from the one we used in the mag. So there's something new to see even if you have the mag. Whoop-de-doo!

It was the swingin' sixties! Monsters were big and hot rods were big- so somebody at Aurora plastics said "Hey! Let's put monsters in hot rods!" And so a series of strange hybrid monster/hot rod kits issued forth. Some people liked them- to be honest I thought they were stupid. BUT now in my ollllllld age I started thinking things like - "Hey! Monsters were big- and DINOSAURS were big- so why not Prehistoric MONSTERS!" Hence the attached. More "if I ran the show back in the day" nonsense, I know. But by god it came natural! And I would STILL dig kits like these.
