By the time this last issue of Cracked's For Monsters Only magazine appeared on the shelves, more earnest coverage of classic and contemporary horror, along with the usual joking (or attempts at joking) photographs, filled the magazine, replacing the cartoons and humorous illustrations that overran earlier issues. With issue 9, "Cracked's" was dropped from the title, perhaps in an attempt to attract the more serious horror fan. It didn't work. But among the many cartoons, illustrations, and abundance of cheeky photographs in this magazine's run, some articles, which focused on the classic horror stars, do stand out. In this last issue, Basil Rathbone is so honored.
