Here are a couple of good pictures I lifted off the net of the Milton Bradley Munsters Card game from 1964:

I wonder out of the two games, which is rare? Originally, the blonde boy was present on the box. Correct?

Off hand I can't say. When I get a chance I'll research the subject in some of my books and other sources for game info.

The game featuring a blonde Eddie is definitely the less common of the two. It seems to have been a design error that was quickly corrected.

Honestly, I don't think the kid is supposed to be Eddie.  I think he's supposed to be a normal kid that's terrified that he's getting instruction from actual Dracula.

Yeah, Eddie wouldn't be scared of his own family.

Steve Ditko fans might want to pick up these IDW hardcovers compiling some of his best work. There's one devoted to Gorgo:



And one to Konga as well:



I'm among those who would argue that Ditko did much/most of his best work for Charlton.

We had these at my store.  I didn't buy them and I regret it.  There have been a number of top quality Ditko compilations the last few years.

Which store was this?

 ???

I didn't buy them and I regret it.

Here then is another book I have and highly recommend to all Marvel comic fans:



And here's the sequel:



Did you buy these?

Thanks for that Ditko tip -- I never heard of his monster books!

Hey! I just noticed that IDW bowdlerized the original cover to Konga 4 for the book!



IDW replaced the swastika on the tank with some sort of a generic non-denominational symbol.

Emerald City Comics in Florida.  I don't think I have that Marvel Monsters Hardcover.  Wasn't that the one that collected the 00s era one shots?  I have most of the individual comics form that.  I don't have any of the big Omnibuses.  I'd like to, I just can't afford them.

They mirror imaged the left side of the tank. That's why it looks like some goofy robot tank. They even left in part of Konga's arm and fingers.

No!!! The stories collected and reprinted in the two books were from the pre-1963 Marvel sci-fi themed anthology titles. Most featured Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko artwork.

Here's a good selection of covers:
