Monsters vs Heroes : Mr. Monster

Back in the 1980’s cartoonist Michael Gilbert put together one of the more interesting comics of that era. Gilbert was a student and lover of all sorts of eclectic comic books. But when he stumbled upon an obscure Canadian title called SUPER DUPER COMICS, he fell in love with it’s star feature, Mr. Monster. Doc Sterne would don his colorful costume and pack his pistol to battle villains of the supernatural kind. Gilbert revived the hero in his tongue-in-cheek series MR. MONSTER. Here’s the cover to issue 2 by the late, great Dave Stevens.

Today I’m giving you a dose of the original in “The Terror Of Trezma” from SUPER DUPER COMICS #3.

  1. There's a Kickstarter campaign going on now (Sept. 2015) to fund a reprint of Doc Stearne's golden age adventures! More info on the fb page:
