hi friend! these pages are very beautiful. in italia there are not many comic strips that treat the theme "horror." I hope to be able to give my contribution to this kind, publishing my comic strips. unfortunately I have not found the way to publish my histories on the zombis and on the monsters of the cinema of the years 40 yet. good luck for the your my job dear friend. in my blog there are new comic strips ;D

Awesome news! I'm a rabid collector of monster magazinies so if this book is anything like Cotter's Mexican Measked Wrestler Filmtography then it'll be another winner! Thanks for the news!

>Once again...if only money were no object

I heard that. I am excited about this book but just like Cotter's Mexican horror study I have to wonder what is up with the extremely subpar cover design. I mean, the painted vampire artwork here is of course great, but look at the overall weak lay-out, wanky text placement, snoozie font choice etc... I don't know, books like this should be great from the front cover to the back. This just looks sloppy to me.

I agree, a terrible cover on a $45 book doesn't help it sell. Self published and smaller press companies usually have amateurs working for them and they seriously just don't know any better. The Great Monster Magazines cover isn't as bad as the Masked Wrestler book cover, which is godawful by the way, but it could definitely use some smarter art direction.

>you ask me whats important is whats on the inside

True of course, but to get to the inside you first have to get beyond the outside. It's called "judging a book by it's cover" ha ha...

I just recently bought my first Skywald book at a flea market,incredibly stupid,weird for the sake of weird,but i loved it,more entertaining than a lot of my Warrens.i'll have to check this out to see his viewpoint.

I'll buy it because I have to. I would have picked a different Skywald cover to use, though this one is nice. But yeah... for $45, they could have put some effort into the graphics. Oh well... McFarland books always deliver where it counts.
