Design: Famous Monsters of Filmland
Famous Monsters of Filmland (1958-1983) Originally published as a one-off to capitalize on the popularity of recently syndicated horror movies. The first edition did so well that it ran for the next 25 years. As a kid this was the mag to get. Great stories, cool photos, and illustrations – and beautiful full color cover paintings. The bands The Cramps and The Misfits liked it so much they stole the type-face for their logo. Happy Halloween.
