One astute reader's Mania Mailbag entry summed up Monster Mania's coverage pretty well: "...just the absence of corny puns in the picture captions is enough to gladden the heart of one like me who has grown up with horror movies and is sick of seeing them treated as kids stuff. Thank you." No kid stuff in this issue 3, just more Hammer coverage, a lengthy blow by blow description of The Wolf Man by Richard Bojarski, followed by production information, and lots of unmarred photos. The Monster Record Jamboree ad page will bring back memories for some of you, as well as The Sorcerer's Shop of goodies. How many of you ordered the Spyscope Pen (I did!) or the Haunted House Mystery Bank (I did!) or the miniature camera (yup on that one, too!) The Cobweb ad page shows more nifty swag: there's the Spooky Lite (yes, got that one), and the awesome Pin the Monster head (hung that on the back of my bedroom door and loved it).
