I was introduced to Gold Key’s The Little Monsters via my good pal Prof. Grewbeard and his excellent Magic Carpet Burn. The Prof. has exquisite taste in all things, particularly comics. The following stories are from The Little Monsters No. 25, June 1974. First: The wonderful cover, which well prepares the reader for cool contents.
The Little Monsters (‘Orrible Orvie and Awful Annie) were born during the monster craze of the 1960s, making their first appearance in 1964, a year before The Munsters and The Adams Family appeared on television. In comics, they appeared before the John Stanley penned, Melvin Monster, and the Milton Monster cartoon on ABC. The Little Monsters proved far more popular than all the competition, regardless of format, lasting a very solid 44 issues and 14 years.The reason for the title’s longevity is the typical recipe for success in comics: It had superior art and writing as well as excellent character design. I prefer this title to any of its more temporal brethren. I can't find art or script credits and that’s a darn shame.
May I suggest a visit to the aforementioned Magic Carpet Burn for a feast of this wonderful title? Just click HERE!
