I like that the Creature has breasts.  Your son is on his way to becoming a man.

My son Dominick surprised me with a very special gift this week. It is a clay sculpture that he made of the Creature from the Black Lagoon. He made me very proud and very happy. Perhaps one day he will become the next Randy Bowen? You never know. This clay Creech will get star billing in my Creature case for a long, long, time.

I picked up some Monster Paperback Books



And finally snagged the elusive Creature/Wolf Man wallet so that now I have all of the monsters on wallets.

WOW!! Those paperbacks and wallets are some of my all time favorite classic monster items...I have only one complete Frankenstein/Dracula wallet which i bought from Dan Roebuck after an ebay auction where no one met the minimum bid. I had the Franky/ Phantom as a kid and still remember the thrill of seeing that envelope from Captain Company sitting on the kitchen table when i got home from school. The smell of that new vinyl still lingers. Thanks for sharing! Here's another of my favorite monster toys from Captain Co. ;

Hey guys, do those wallets come loose or were they sold in some type of packaging?

Love the Horrorscope, Gasport!

Rob, I've only ever seen them loose, never in a package.  Probably a counter box or something.  Seems like I may have seen one of those a long time ago, or part of one.

Those wallets look great Bobby, I've never seen a whole set together.  Also, I really love the paperbacks, I collect paperbacks from that era and have always loved those.

That last book in this pic, of Dracula, does it say who the illustrator is? Is it comic book format or just heavily illustrated?

   Say, is this like the black & white comic book version that showed up in a 1960's issue of "Famous Monters" of the Hammer "Dracula" with Christopher Lee & Peter Cushing?

Yes, it is the comic book.  It's a Russ Jones publication with illustrations by Alden "Al" McWilliams and text by Otto Binder and Craig Tennis.  There is an introduction by Chris Lee.  It's done so that you read it sideways.  It opens like a calendar with the spine in the middle and the whole page is one set of panels.  Copyright is 1966.

This is the top part of the wallets counter box that Terry owns.
