Overview

Millions of kids have grown up loving the horrible creatures that inhabit our nightmares and star in our favorite films. A big part of being a Monster Kid is the magazines devoted to monster-movie fandom. From the first issue of Jim Warren's Famous Monsters of Filmland through today's computer-typeset publications, the monster magazine has always been a place to learn about classic or upcoming movies, to see photo stills from films that might never show on the local TV stations on a Saturday afternoon, or even just to feel part of a larger community of fans.

The Take-Me-With-You Guide to Monster Magazines is a quick, portable guide to those magazines. You get a description of the contents, and often a bit of history, of over 100 publications from 1959 to today. You also get a beautiful graphic of a representative cover from each one, and some general pricing guidelines to boot.

Take the guesswork out of it when you go hunting - online or off - for a cool vintage monster magazine. You wouldn't go hunting vampires without having some holy water and a stake handy, would you?
