Scary Monsters Magazine #72


What a treat it was to make my way down the drive of stately Thunder Manor to ye olde mail box and peek inside to discover a familiar manila envelope inside. Yes, that's right - the new issue of Scary Monsters Magazine was here and in my diabolical clutches.

It was doubly sweet since I had the day off from work. After traversing the scary landscape of the front yard (much shorter than going back up the drive), I ripped open the envelope to find the fangtastic werewolf cover by Terry Beatty staring up at me. So, I knew what I had to do. What any self-respecting monster kid would do.

I immediately discarded all plans for yard work and errands, and instead popped in some classic Universal flicks into the ole DVD player, curled up with a fine beverage, and dove right into SMM #72! With the likes of Frankenstein, House of Frankenstein, Werewolf of London and The Invisible Man keeping me company all afternoon, I took in the spooktacular goodness that is Scary Monsters Magazine.

Here is a sample of the snarling scarepieces in this ish:
