Monster Kid Online Magazine #4

Welcome to the latest issue of Monster Kid Online Magazine, the new old monster magazine for the digital age! Again our crew of crack(ed) reporters (shown here) bring you a mixed-up bag of neo-retro features and graphics. Don't let this picture fool you. They all put on their happy faces for this office photo. They keep them in the file cabinet next to the water cooler. If you look closely you can see the staples around the edges. In reality they are quite upset because some people still haven't discovered the coolest, craziest place on the web for classic monster fans. They all worked their skeletons to the bone (well, maybe not Tor) to put together this ooh and aah inspiring issue. So spread the word about Monster Kid and make our staff as happy and cheerful as they look here. Now somebody hand me the staple remover.

Monster Kid's own classic horror discussion group


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..
