Monster Fun Annual 1978
    Monster Fun Annual 1978
    It's the second Monster Fun Annual, and again we kick off
    with a First Class front cover, courtesy of Robert Nixon.
    Kid Kong's such a 'nana!

   This year, Kid's main strip runs a mere 3 pages, printed
   in black and white and green - a bit disappointing, that.

   But there are two Badtime Bedtime stories to enjoy:

   "Starchy and Butch" is an eight-page triumph from the
   pen of Mike Brown. It's obviously spoofing that hit TV show,
   "Starsky and Hutch". Which means it isn't actually a
   story spoof at all. But who's complaining...?

   At least "Traffic Island" is a more literal bit of fun. It's
   billed as being by Robert Looney Stevedore...
