    Description

    Famous Monsters of Filmland #1 (Warren, 1958) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Cream to Off-White Pages. CGC has certified this copy as 9.0 (1206868001) for this key monster mag, which Jerry Weist's Comic Art Price Guide notes is "extremely scarce in conditions above a strict Very Fine." When this first Warren monster magazine hit newsstands, it not only started the monster-mag genre, it was the first taste of success for Warren (their only previous publication was a short-lived Playboy knockoff called After Hours). The combination of monster-flick photos and Forrest J Ackerman's text found favor with fans, and the series was off to a run that lasted 35 years. Also of note is a two-page Frankenstein parody by Bill Elder and Harvey Kurtzman. By the way, the masked fellow on the cover is publisher Jim Warren himself! Comes with a COA from Heritage Auctions.

    More Information: From the collection of Kevin Burns.
