Monster Hunters #11 (Charlton/1978)
One of Charlton Comics numerous horror/mystery titles, Monster Hunters started off life with "all new" stories only to end up as a repository for reprints as its run continued to an early demise. That said there is much to look out from Charlton as Steve Ditko contributed so much material over the years.
This issue was the penultimate edition with all-new material and contained three stories. The Monsters have Surrounded the House was a great mixture of horror and science gone wrong with a rather good twist. Following up was Montego Frame a story of love and vanity with a second tragic ending.
The last story Giant on the Beach was the weakest of the three but reminds the reader of simpler times when it easier to suspend disbelief. Silly.
Monster Hunters ran for 18 issues between 1975 and 1979.
