Melvin Monster

volume: 3
publisher: Drawn&Quarterly
language: English

The ghoulish capers of everyone's favorite monster continue with the third volume of the acclaimed series. Melvin lands his first babysitting job only to discover he has his handsfull, literally -- the "baby" in this case is a giant-sized monster, almost the size of a room. Melvin meets his friend for a friendly game of marbles. An older monster-woman passing by is offended by the scene, as everybody in Monsterville knows that monsters should always fight when they're together. Finally, she is content only after forcing the 2 monsters into a scrap. Melvin also attempts to be the first kid in Monsterville to attend school in over 600 years, but he is thwarted each time by Miss McGargoyle, his would-be teacher. He is threatened with boulders, giant boomerangs, and even long-range missiles, but nothing can stop Melvin from wanting to go to school each day. Melvin Monster illustrate just how timeless the comics of John Stanley are.
