Some caustic comments direct towards Hercules in the comic books, mention of horror host The Creep's return to Creature Features on Channel 5 in NYC (I loved The Creep!), and another horror host, Doctor Shock, gets his due. By 1973, the monster kid era was waning, so it's great to see coverage of the horror hosts who still carried the burning torch for monsters. Interestingly enough, horror on television was exploding, and this issue of Monster Times covers Gargoyles (with wonderful creature makeup by Stan Winston and Ellis Burman). Closer to my own collecting passion, there's Is This Any Way to Sell a Movie!?! Being a collector of pressbooks and movie promotion material, I only wish the article was longer; but it's a fun read.
