Where it came from

"Monster Madness (by Sinister Stan Lee !) was published by the Marvel Comics Group from 1972 to 1973. In the first two issues they found full page photos with funny captions. With the third issue, an attempt was made to flesh out the content with reviews but it was too late and the mag disapeared."


as mentioned in the comments..
Stan lee got THAT photo from a 1940's horror tv series called "the crimson ghost"

the type-face came from a magazine called "famous monsters of film land"

i guess the stan lee series took photos of monsters from horror movies and put "silly" captions beside them.
