- Full Description
Time-trip back to 1957-1972, when monsters stomped into the American mainstream! Once Frankenstein and fiends infiltrated TV in 1957, an avalanche of monster magazines, toys, games, trading cards, and comic books crashed upon an unsuspecting public. This profusely illustrated full-color hardcover covers that creepy, kooky Monster Craze through features on Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, the #1 hit "Monster Mash," Aurora's model kits...
And TV shows (Shock Theatre, The Addams Family, The Munsters, and Dark Shadows), "Mars Attacks" trading cards, Eerie Publications, Planet of the Apes, and more! It features interviews with James Warren (Creepy, Eerie, and Vampirella magazines), Forrest J Ackerman (Famous Monsters of Filmland), John Astin (The Addams Family), Al Lewis (The Munsters), Jonathan Frid (Dark Shadows), George Barris (monster car customizer), Ed "Big Daddy" Roth (Rat Fink), Bobby (Boris) Pickett (Monster Mash singer/songwriter) and others, including several of the B-Movie starlets.
Pretty wild, with collages of all kinds of cool old monster stuff, from film posters and lobby cards, to comic books, plastic model kits, masks, you-name-it, it's probably here with a monster on it.
