    Description

    Famous Monsters of Filmland #1 (Warren, 1958) CGC VG- 3.5 Off-white pages. This first Warren monster magazine isn't easy to find in any grade! And that's been the case since it sold out within a matter of days after hitting newsstands. This look at horror movies past and present has plenty of monster-flick photos, plus pun-filled text by Forrest Ackerman. It 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 Jim Warren himself! Jerry Weist's Comic Art Price Guide, published in 2000, lists values of $200 in Good and $550 in Fine condition. Not listed in Overstreet. CGC census 12/05: 1 in 3.5, 36 higher.
