Famous Monsters of Filmland # 71 On Sale Now!

I just received my comp copies of FM # 71 and it's gorgeous.

Aside from my prose re-telling of Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, there's a lot more fun to be had in this issue, as well. The internet doesn't do Joe Jusko's amazing cover painting justice.

Yet another dream of mine fulfilled. This is a wonderful Halloween present--to me!

Happily, I hear the mag is rapidly selling out, so grab yours soon!
