One of the more visually exciting monsterkid magazines was Fantastic Monsters of the Films. With a simple use of basic colors sprinkled throughout, and wall-suitable (if your parents didn't mind the tape marks) mini posters to make any monster fan salivate, each issue was quite a treat. Great photo coverage of classic horror movies and their stars made for an enjoyable read. Don't forget, this was at a time without the ubiquitous availability of media and movies that the Internet now provides (or impedes, depending on your viewpoint). Of note in this issue is coverage of Castle of the Monsters, a Spanish monsterfest production and Curse of the Faceless Man, one of my guilty pleasures. Here's the comic book reader version for you mobile monster types: Download Fantastic Monsters of the Films V2-1 (This copy comes from the creepy archives of Professor Kinema, who has graciously shared a metric ton or so of cool monster stuff over the ZC years.)
