Rough layout start to a wonderful pro-zine would turn into a key monsterkid magazine for its time. In this issue, Boris Karloff and Zacherley get the love, and good articles discuss the horror and fantasy scene. I always confused the back cover for the front cover, but I keep wondering why go with the front cover when Zacherley was more of a draw. Perhaps to allow room for the titles? Still, seeing Zacherley on the cover would have made me buy this puppy back then. Just sayin'. Here's the comic book reader version: Download Journal of Frankenstein Issue 1. (This copy of the magazine courtesy of Professor Kinema, long time contributor to FZC).
