MONSTERS TO LAUGH WITH NO. 3 (PART 1)


MONSTERS TO LAUGH WITH
Vol. 1, No. 3
Editor: Stan Lee
Publication Date: 1964
Publisher: Non-Pariel Publishing Corp.
Color cover/B&W interior
36 ppg. (including covers)
Cover Price: 25 cents

This, the third and last issue of the title, MONSTERS TO LAUGH WITH, has a cover date of 1965, but the copyright date of 1964 indicates that it landed on newsstands in the previous year.

The evolution of the gags actually gets a little better here. Yes, there are still lines to wince at rather than laugh with, and somebody must have told Stan because there is not one racial or politically-charged joke to be found. Ironically, this was the last of the run.

There is the caption contest, however, that indicates MTLW intended to go further. Did it? You'll find out in a later post right here at MONSTER MAGAZINE WORLD!
