You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Marvel Merry Marcher Monster Society

In the 1970s, Marvel had their own version of the Frankenstein monster (Dracula and Wolf Man too) and in this issue of Marvel Team-Up from 1972, "Patches" (as Spider-Man, always the wiseguy, calls the Monster) is paired with the web-crawler. As is so often the case with comic books, the cover below (by Mike Esposito, inks, and Ed Hannigan, pencils) is a come-on, as the Monster doesn't want to kill Spider-Man in the actual story within but only tries to help.
