Editorial Reviews


“[John Stanley’s] tales move along with such pleasing economy that it sometimes seems less likely his stories were ever consciously created than that they already just existed somehow. Melvin Monster, one of the few titles to which he provided both art and script, urges us to reconsider his capability with images too.” —Walrus

About the Author

John 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.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Here we have the third and final volume of Stanley's original kid series, Melvin Monster, reprinting the last 3 comics from the series (it only lasted 9 issues).

And making up for the last 2 volumes, D&Q reprints all the covers in the back of this volume, four to a page.
