More British stuff, now, as requested. These days, if you came up with a pitch that went: 'It's The Bash Street Kids, but written by H.P. Lovecraft', well, they'd bite your hand off, as well as any other available limbs.
Creature Teacher ran in Monster Fun, a kid's weekly that did exactly what it said on the tin ie. It was full of monsters having fun. Creature Teacher himself, as you'll see, was dragged up from Hell to take charge of Class 3x at Massacre St. School, the worst behaved bunch of kids in Monsterville.
It was drawn by Tom Williams, and is full of exquisite detail that unfortunately the printers of the time weren't always able to show off properly.
It's a bit weird, I s'pose, that this is a British strip where we're supposed to root for the teacher and not the kids, but the way this lot carry on, you wish Creature Teacher would have done with it, and just eat the little bastards.
