    Description

    Famous Monsters of Filmland #1 (Warren, 1958) CGC FN 6.0 Cream to off-white pages. Legend has it that this first Warren monster magazine sold out within a matter of days after hitting newsstands. This look at horror movies past and present, with plenty of monster-flick photos, plus text by Forrest Ackerman, started an entire genre, 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 Warren himself! Jerry Weist notes in his Comic Art Price Guide that #1 "is extremely scarce in conditions above a strict very fine." Weist's book, published in 2000, lists a Fine value of $550 for this issue.
