Day 17 of October Horror Month: FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND

I grew up with the magazine Famous Monsters of Filmland, written and edited by Forrest J. Ackerman. It was funny, campy, sexy to a 12 year old boy, and filled with awesome pics from the monster movies I had to be damn lucky to be able to catch on television. As tastes changed, so did the audience for the magazine, falling out of favor and going into extended hiatus more than once. But now, IDW has stepped up and made me glad. Famous Monsters of Filmland returns, if only a wee bit different than the original. I recommend it.
