The Creature from the Black Lagoon makes a splash in issue 5 of The Monster Times, dated March 29, 1972. This is the first issue that starts an odd but noteworthy article style that would devour the later issues: a first person narrative by the issue's featured-creature. In this one, The Memoirs of Gilbert "Gill" Gillman come right from his gills. It's a bit fishy, but still informative. More MPOVs (monster point of views) would be written, but this first one is perhaps the best. On the comics end, Joe Kubert is interviewed regarding DC's Tarzan of the Apes and Esquire magazine goes for the throat with monster comix. And for Humphrey Bogart fans (like me!) there's coverage on the only horror film he starred in, The Return of Doctor X.
