SCARY MONSTERS NO. 104 NOW ON SALE!


The latest issue of SCARY MONSTERS (#104) is now available. Order HERE. You can also track it down at your local Barnes & Noble, but you have to look closely because the "Entertainment" rack where all the monster 'zines are is packed and lots of titles are hidden by other mags.

Here's the 411 from MyMovieMonsters.com, the new publisher of SM:

In #104 we highlight the quintessential creator of monsters for B movies in the 1950s. Paul Blaisdell was a one-of-a-kind monster maker who literally stepped inside his own creations, bringing them to life before the cameras and movie-goers worldwide. We also ask, "Can You Tame the Tingler?" in a review of the William Castle-Vincent Price shock-fest from a scientific perspective. Then there's our music-monster mash up with "Gravesy Gravesem's American Chop 40 Monster Hits Edition." Godzilla fans will appreciate a convenient guide to the 29 G films released by Toho. We also visit with Dark Shadows alumna Marie Wallace and Vincent Price protege David Frankham of Return of the Fly, Tales of Terror, The Outer Limits, and Star Trek. And there's much, much more in 144 vintage pulp pages for Monster Kids of all ages!

DRACULA
Vol. 1, No. 6
1971 (No month given)
Publisher: Buro Lan, S.A. de Ediciones/New English Library
Editor: Laurence James
Cover: Enrich
Pages: 24

In this, especially good issue, the magazine's eponymous character actually makes an appearance, albeit for only one page. But what a page it is, in the story, "The Messenger", a wordless strip with the exception of a few introductory lines on the splash page.

As mentioned by editor Laurence James, Esteban Maroto's "Wolff" reaches new heights of terror and beauty. The issue is filled out with more superb layouts, line-work and colors.
