Back Issue Dept.

What is a Monster Kid? Back in the magical days of the 1960s it seemed that monsters were everywhere. Thanks to the release of the Universal horror classics to TV in the late '50s and the creepy and kooky local horror hosts who presented them, movie monsters like FRANKENSTEIN, THE WOLF MAN, THE MUMMY and DRACULA were more popular than ever. Actors like Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney, Jr. were winning a new generation of fans. FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND magazine provided cool monsters photos and information along with laughs. Monster TV Shows, model kits, toys, trading cards and other items fanned the flames of the '60s monster craze. If you grew up in those times, or were lucky enough to discover the joys of monsterdom through childhood exposure to classic monster movies, then you are a MONSTER KID!

MONSTER KID magazine is intended as a fun and affectionate salute to the publications of the 1960s. Part of the look and feel of this site is inspired by the classic monster magazine traditions popularized by James Warren and Forrest J. Ackerman in the original FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND and featured in various other magazines of that time. If MONSTER KID makes you recall memories the classic monster magazines of the past, then we are very gratified.
