Famous Monsters Announce Horror Comic Slate

Famous-Monsters-of-FilmlandThe world’s longest-running entertainment fan magazine Famous Monsters (est. 1958), has announced that it is expanding its publishing division into original comic books.

“It has been a fun and successful seven years of covering some amazing talent while relaunching Famous Monsters back into the mainstream,” says Famous Monsters Publisher Philip Kim. “But I remembered something equally exciting that Forrest Ackerman penned: his own stories. Though we celebrate all Famous Monsters, we are itching to make new ones. It’s time to tell our own stories again.”

Broken-Moon_Gothic_Steve-NilesFamous Monsters has always featured work in tandem with Creepy, Eerie and most famously, founding FM Editor Forrest J Ackerman’s very own Vampirella. The first releases this year will feature work by Paul Tobin, Darick Robertson, Jeff Johnson, Nat Jones and Steve Niles… now if they could only get Bernie Wrightson to ink a few covers.

    beautiful artwork…and a great move. so many great ideas out there its about time the world stopped regurgitating. When we were doing Nightmare in 1991 Henry Selick famously said we should stop feeding off each others vomit.

    • So glad they’re doing this… as they’ll do it right. They won’t be feeding off anyone’s vomit… unless of course the story dictates that someone has too.
