Bleepers! 3

Bleepers! 3 (1981)
Bleepers Meets the Monsters

Swamp Thing learns the woeful lesson of substituting margarine for _________ (noun), in Bleepers! a Mad Libs-like game that uses beautiful Bernie Wrightson art in an unconventional way. You’ll most likely recognize Mike Kaluta’s House of Secrets 101 (1972) being used for the Bleepers cover.

Who can forget such timeless classics as, Teeth of the Weregopher!?
Oddly enough, I was unable to track down which book this strange tale originally appeared in. I was sure that a google search of, “weregopher” would have yielded something.

Last, but not least, Aunt Glop brings up the rear. Thanks to fellow Swampy fan, Allan, I can provide which book this gloppy story originally appeared in! House of Mystery 204 “All in the Family”.
