Pop Culture. Sci-Fi. Fantasy. Horror. Famous Monsters magazine covers it all, living up to its classic title while staying current - and ahead of the curve. The hugely influential and internationally distributed magazine was the first-ever genre fanzine of its kind, created by Forrest J Ackerman in 1958. Now with a fresher look and more exclusive interviews with artists, actors, and filmmakers than ever before, every fun issue of FM includes savvy picks of new and relevant movies, books, music, video games, comics, and toys -- and always maintains a nostalgic foothold in our classic Monster Kid roots.
