I LOVE BAD MOVIES #5 AVAILABLE NOW!

Lost Famous Monsters Of Filmland Found!

Famous Monsters of Filmland issue number 70 is the first of hopefully manny “missing issue” releases.  This baby is a monster kid’s dream come true, perfectly reproducing the look, content  and flavor of classic FM issues.  It’s worth it alone for the classic Arnold Schwarzenegger photo spread from Hercules in New York.
