It's back and better than ever! In September 1958, Monster Parade magazine was released close on the heels of Famous Monsters of Filmland, which was the magazine responsible for igniting the monster craze that carried into the 1970s. While the beloved FM continues to be published in a more modern and some say less appealing form, Monster Parade and its heavier emphasis on short stories of fiction lasted only four issues but has its place in monster movie magazine history as the second publication of its kind.
Many Monster Kids, movie enthusiasts, and collectors discovered Monster Parade decades after its demise because of its short run and the difficulty in securing any of the four issues. Curiously, Monster Parade #1 was originally printed as Volume 2, Number 6, presumably to circumvent postage issues for new publications or to give an indication that the title had been around for a while. Issue #1 features stories such as "Rock Around the Tombstone," "Revenge of the Jukebox Vampire," and "Feed Me, Mr. Wodgett." Readers can also enjoy special features like "Come Into My Parlor" and monster previews such as "Monsters In Your Living Room."
Now, Scary Monsters presents a PRISTINE, high-quality 60th anniversary reprint of the very first issue for all to enjoy! This limited-print-run reprint is as close as it gets to picking up an original copy from a newsstand in 1958 - maybe even better!
Finding an original copy today can be a fearful task, and even if you do, the condition is probably fair or worse, and the price is terrifyingly high! But now you can own your own piece of horror magazine history in a presentation so good it'll scare you!
