Metropolis is ghoulishly glad to present a fright-tastic run of Famous Monsters of Filmland, the influential and infamous magazine that kept the freak flag flying for horror fans young and old during the 1950s, 1960s, and beyond! The magazine that inspired most of the great horror filmmakers of the fright film revolution of the 1970s, including Rick Baker, Joe Dante, Steven Spielberg, John Carpenter, and others, and a wonderful record of early monster movie and sci-fi fandom, FMOF was founded by the legendary Forrest Ackerman, whose near-century of geek culture influence shaped the fan culture we know today.
Many of the early issues of FM are very hard to find, and we're devilishly delighted to bring to market a nearly complete run of the early classic issues, and a healthy dose of horror from the mag's underrated 1970s and 1980s reign of terror, along with a smattering of ghoul-mag rarities, including the ultra-rare Journal of Frankenstein #1, Calvin Beck's pre-FMOF monster zine, and the scarce Castle of Frankenstein #1! Celebrate the scariest of holidays with this wonderful collection of monster scarcities, some of which are the first copies we've ever offered, all of which are sure to delight fear fiends of all ages!
