Marvel Comics' Living Mummy 1975 Sticker!

msh_75-livingmummy.jpg

Marvel Comics introduced a lot of characters based on the standard monster movie archetypes in the early 1970s, when the Comics Code Authority finally unclenched enough to allow it... so they introduced their own version of the Frankenstein Monster, Dracula, a Werewolf (by Night), a Zombie, and The Living Mummy! He's pictured above, courtesy of a 1975 sticker set sold with sticks of really awful gum.

As you can see, these stickers also came with some really awful jokes, too!
