A set of issues designed to cross-promote Marvel’s monster books. Unfortunately, rather than featuring the much-more interesting Werewolf by Night and Dracula, we get the B-listers. And the main villain is a mad scientist named Baron Ludwig Von Shtupf, who literally cries when he loses. I’m not sure if Gerry was poking fun, having fun, or just giving up…The story is exactly what you’d expect, and it’s as good as it deserves to be.
