Monsters are the Rage!

The first issue of Famous Monsters of Filmland hit stands in 1958, and as in any era with any sort of pop cultural phenomenon explosion (monsters!!!!) the satirical spoofs were quick to follow. Here's a good 'n silly one from the Nov-Dec 1959 issue of Broadway Laughs Vol. 13 #10, (also padded out with some extras found in the Jan 1960 issue of Dolls & Gags Vol. 5 #2.)
