Monsterama

Tagged: Publication

Letter-size saddle-stapled Cinema magazine printed on slick paper. Publisher: Fantagraphics Books. Editor: Forrest J Ackerman and perhaps also Brad Linaweaver (see below). Two numbered, undated issues, both published 1991.

This short-lived effort by Forrest J Ackerman was his second attempt to return to Media Magazine publishing after the demise of the long-running Famous Monsters of Filmland, the first having been his unhappy experience with FJA's Monsterland (which see). Monsterama consisted largely of numerous photos of vintage film stars and colour cover reproductions of Ackerman's past film magazines. It proved a swift failure and is little remembered today. Some sources credit Linaweaver as co-editor. [GSt/DRL]
