MONSTERS IN SPACE



Both sides of a folder from either third or fourth grade (I skipped forward at mid-year, so I'm not sure). I feel that this has to be one of those rather than second grade because of the fact that the shuttlecraft on the STAR TREK side is referenced from the Dinky Enterprise, which I got at Lenox Toy & Hobby on a trip to Atlanta sometime in mid-1976. I had drawn what appears to be a light bulb-nosed robot Superman being captured in some sort of net or bubble, but chose to erase him and do the Flair (or possibly Bic Banana) felt-tip rendering of the Enterprise instead. The monsters on the other side are from nowhere in particular, except for the upper left-hand one, who is from THE OUTER LIMITS, drawn from a book on science fiction films that I had (Can't remember the title, but it had a violet cover with a photo from FLASH GORDON on it). I can't seem to find the original photo anywhere, but this trading card is the same monster, I think.

Lenox Toy & Hobby was a great store. I used to spend hours in there just poring over the Japanese model kits and the Godaikin robots...
