Scans found thanks to Peter Gray's Cartoons and Comics blog. The two original art scans found at Comic Art Fans. Ken Reid's "World Wide Weirdies" series was originally published in the comic Whoopee!!, read about it here. I spent a great deal of time cropping the ninety some images, adjusting the colors and cleaning up the edges, enjoy this assortment of fantastically bizarre monster filled illustrations from Ken! Learn more about his life and work at his Wikipedia page.

Man, I loved this artist when I was a kid, recognised it straight away from the way he draws his nose and mouths, used to always read Beano as a kid. Awesome blog!
