LEGION OF MONSTERS MAGAZINE #1 (1975): 1st Manphibian

This was a one-shot black-and-white magazine. There were stories about Dracula and Frankenstein, which were fine but didn’t amount to much. But for monster-loving nerds, the second story had the first appearance of Manphibian…

…Yeah, he’s the creature from the black lagoon. He appears in this comic and then disappears until the next century. It’s implied but not clearly stated that his origin is mutation from oil wrongly deposited in a swamp.

The book ends promoting issue #2. It never made it to publication.
