REVIEW SCORE 6
Monday Funnies #3 features the origin story of Business Man and another installment of "The Adventures of Mr. Noseholes," a bizarre comic serial starring an offbeat character with oversized nostrils. Mr. Noseholes might have developed a cult following if the character had gotten more widespread exposure to his widespread nostrils.

The third issue introduces new contributors to the series, including the talented Raffaelo, who offers one page of his fine ink illustration along with an offer to enroll in his 40-hour drawing course, "The Fastest Draw in the West." 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.
