In Prize Comics #7, dated December 1940, Dick Briefer
introduced his Frankenstein. Many as the first ongoing horror feature consider this. In 1945,
Frankenstein appeared in his own title. Now he is a returning war veteran, marking a shift in
genre by Briefer. Frankenstein was become a good-natured humorous character, but would revert
back to his horrific roots towards the end of his title's run.
Charlton are a major contributor to this category. Reptilicus, based on the film of the same
name lasted two issues. The short run continued as Reptisaurus. Two other Charlton titles were
created by Steve Ditko, Konga and Gorgo. Notice the striking similarity between these two and
King Kong and Godzilla!!
Charlton have also given us some other cool monster titles. These are mainly based on films,
both new releases and classics. Other articles include such gems as 'How to build your own
monster' and 'The Monster Song' (words and music included)!!
We have 18 titles and 196 issues in our 'Monsters Category' for you to enjoy.
