Here’s one of the great “too good to be true” ads of comic book history. The LIFE SIZE GIANT MOON MONSTER with 3 monster masks was available for an unheard of $1.25, plus you got membership in the prestigious Monster Fan Club. What kid wouldn’t want a “Horrifying” and “Exciting” and “Thrilling!” Monster?

So what did you actually get? As you’d expect, it was a 6 foot tall poster (with comic ad whore Jack Davis’ art, of course) and the 3 Monster Masks were actually just sheets of paper with pictures of masks on them, apparently for you to cut off and glue to your skin!
