SINISTER SIMULACRA


Observed in a UK book from 1976 that is otherwise filled with comic stories is the VALIANT BOOK OF MAGIC AND MYSTERY. Labeled "A Fleetway Annual" it is from a publishing group that printed a wide variety of comics-related books, including titles such as FRANKIE STEIN, SHIVER AND SHAKE, and MONSTER FUN.

A feature inside MYSTERY AND MAGIC was "The Great Movie Monster Quiz". Instantly recognizable to any Monsterologist is the lettering style used in the title. Drawn by a fellow by the name of John Donnelly, he obviously drew his inspiration from a monster movie magazine from across the pond.
