Famous Monsters of Filmland, Issue 1

Since Halloween is coming up, I thought it was appropriate to post this for everyone’s enjoyment – a downloadable PDF of Famous Monsters of Filmland’s first issue. Famous Monsters magazine influenced hundreds of filmmakers, from Joe Dante to Steven Spielberg, and I was lucky enough to have met the creator and editor of FM before he passed away, Forrest J. Ackerman (you can read that story here).

Here’s the issue. Enjoy.
