Monster Fun Annual 1979
    Monster Fun Annual 1979
   It's three in a row for our Kid, as the third "Monster Fun"
   annual has Kong on itts glorious green and yellow cover
   once more. That's a particularly fab portrait.

   This year, your £1.25 will have bought you Kid Kong strips
   from Robert Nixon, Robert Lee and Ed McHenry...

   And the 1979 Badtime Bedtime Story is "Boggles",
   as drawn by Group Captain (Mike) Brown...

   This year's award for Busiest Artist goes to Thomas
   Williams. He draws "X-Ray Specs", "Creature Teacher",
   "Ghost Town", and the Little Monsters puzzle pages.
   And speaking of those mini-monsters, Sid Burgon's
   two "Little Monsters" strips feature a full-page final
   panel that's filled with mischief...

   Meanwhile, this year's Comic Curiosity is a six-page tale
   from Alan Rogers. It's all about a schoolboy dinosaur
   called "Rex".

   Oh, and you might notice, there are no adventure strips
   this year...
