REVIEW SCORE 6
Monday Funnies was an amateur-driven publication and on that level, it's a pretty decent one. The artists are mostly competent and sometimes much better than competent and some of the writing is pretty funny. One of the highlights in the first issue is Jim Pearson's "Those Madcap Monsters," a spoof featuring Frankenstein's monster and a werewolf as ordinary guys...except of course they're still monsters. There are several four-panel strips in this issue and some of them are pretty funny.

Monday Funnies doesn't get a great review score because, like so many underground anthologies, the weaker work brings the score down, but the parts of it that stand out are certainly worth reading.

It is currently unknown how many copies of this comic tabloid were printed. I would say probably not more than a couple thousand. It has not been reprinted.
