Paperback 150 pages

             The self-described BAD MONSTER JOKES VOL. 1 is chock full of bad monster jokes grouped together according to monster, movie, or theme. There is also a chapter full of song lyrics set to everything from rap to torch songs of the 1940s and 50s. With fantastic illustrations by artist Kyle Kaczmarczyk this is a must-have for anyone who grew up on horror, comedy, comic books and magazines like Famous Monsters of Filmland. If you’ve ever stayed up past your bedtime to watch an old Universal monster movie introduced by the likes of Svengoolie, Count Gore De Vol, Sal U. Lloyd, or Uncle Ted then you must have this book. I laughed, I groaned, I shook my head in disbelief. At times I began to wonder if I were reading excerpts from the scripts for Mystery Science Theater 3000! The song lyrics were my favorite part of the book and I loved Kyle’s illustration of Fred Flintstone as a zombie. MONSTERMATT’S BAD MONSTER JOKES VOL. 1 will bring a grin to the faces of adults and kids alike….although we all have a bit of a kid in us. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good laugh.
