Forry Ackerman was the creator (along with publisher James Warren), editor and principal writer for Famous Monsters of Filmland during its first lengthy run. "FM" is considered the first monster magazine and has influenced generations of "monster kids" while spreading the love of the classic horror genre.
Ackerman was also known for his honorary cameo appearances in many B horror and sci-fi films, as well as his "Ackermansion," a sprawling house in Los Angeles that held his extensive horror book and memorabilia collection.
For fifty years, Ackerman shared his collection with fans during open-house events. As an agent, writer, editor, and "actor," he had far-reaching influence in the science fiction, horror, and fantasy community. Many believe, as he was fond of pointing out, that he coined the term sci-fi.
This whimsical, high-quality statue of Ackerman browsing through an issue of "FM" includes a nameplate on the base with one of Forry's most popular nicknames, "Dr. Acula."
Collector's Note: Each statue is hand numbered ??? of 350 on the underside of the base and comes with a certificate of authenticity that is also correspondingly numbered. Numbers vary and photo of numbered base is for example only.
