DescriptionFamous Monsters of Filmland (Central Publications, 1960/1961). Magazines (4) (Multiple Pages, 8.5" X 11"). Horror.
Arguably the first horror, fantasy, and science fiction movie-related magazine of its time, Famous Monsters of Filmland, its editor Forrest J Ackerman, and publisher James Warren built a rabid following of fans for the genre from 1958-1983. Featured in this lot are three 1960 issues, with #7 from June, #8 from September, and #9 from November, as well as #10 from January, 1961. These particular issues contain articles, pictures and behind the scenes insight on such films and actors like Lon Chaney, Bela Lugosi, the Flash Gordon series, The Phantom of the Opera, 13 Ghosts, Dr. Cyclops, an article written by Psycho author Robert Bloch, and many more. Unrestored magazines with good color and overall very presentable appearance. They may have edge or spine wear, spine separations, creases, small tears, surface scuffing, very minor paper loss, unobtrusive stains and smudging, and/or some mild toning. A couple of magazines have detached pages, completely separated spines, and cellophane tape on the spines. Please see full-color, enlargeable image above for more details. Fine/Very Fine.
