CRAZY #73: Fin Fang Foom, part 1

Crazy #73 from April 1981 was one of their “Super Special” editions that mostly featured reprints of previous issues. This one also had something called “The Fuppets” of cutouts so you can do a play of Marvel characters such as Spider-Man and Hulk performed with finger puppets.

This annual was done under a cover by Bobby London, who co-incidentally sent me a birthday greeting through Facebook as I was typing this.
A feature they'd do here and in the annuals was re-letter old comics with new dialogue, like they did with Fin Fang Foom, a monster comic by Jolly Jack Kirby and Darlin' Dick Ayers from Strange Tales #69 in April 1961.

Note how the shorts the Comics Code made them put on the monster have been changed into novelty underwear.
For contrast, here is the original story:
Part Two next Sunday.
