What cracks me up on a lot of these PHM covers is how the dialogue demonstrates people's awareness that the creature of the month exists and could be nearby.

If I lived in a world like that, I'm not sure I would leave the house, much less check out the bottom of the ocean!

Is this the only 20 cent pre-hero? 

Took me a second to understand the question....but yes, this is the only 20 cents PHM book.

Thanks for the excuse to rummage thru my cover gallery on a Friday morning!

There was a section in the newspaper that covered the area monsters and tracked their movements. That’s also how everyone knew all the names, even of the monsters that didn’t talk. 

I think it was by the obits.

It looks like a situation where there was a design change in the prices, and someone screwed up and rolled with both of them. It’s one of those things that always catches my eye when I see this cover.

I have the same problem with this book:

Spoiler

If you need a life preserver for that, you're probably doing it wrong.

My inner child giggles every time I see this book.

Thanks. I can't remember where or when I got that book (probably decades ago), but I was also surprised at how nice it looks (as well the ST85 and 86 I posted earlier). I guess I lucked out on that particular day, as I have many ST that don't look so good.
