Note though that the Executioner seems to have misplaced or forgotten his own head someplace!


Looks like he's holding it. Gots somebody's head, anyway.

Oops! There's his head! Other one must be his victim.

Was Monster Fun World a theme park you visited with your family? If so where was it? Is it still in business?

It's just "Fun World". Possibly the same company that goes by that name today.

I like the artwork on the covers of the Dell Universal Monsters comic books. In 1972 my older brother took me to my first comic book convention. It was at a hotel in Boston. It was small compared to more recent conventions I've been to. Anyway, the very first comic book I ever bought that was second hand was the Dell Frankenstein from 1963. I paid two dollars for it. I still have it, and here's a scan of it...
