Horror fans who grew up with Forrest J Ackerman’s milestone magazine Famous Monsters of Filmland now have a new reason to rejoice! IDW Publishing is resurrecting the mag with a whole new bag of tricks!
The new Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine will begin its run on a quarterly basis starting in summer 2010, and will be available at major book retailers, comic stores, and online at its recently launched official website.
“FM was far and away my favorite magazine when I was a kid, and there has been nothing quite like it since,” says new editor Michael Heisler. “Our goal is to update that magic for a modern audience, with coverage of current horror in all its forms, while continuing to pay tribute to the classic films that started it all. Personally, I’m thrilled to be taking this step down the road that Forry Ackerman and ‘Chilly Billy’ Cardille put me on so many years ago.”
Look for more on this soon! Uncle Forry is I’m sure very pleased. Check out the mag’s new website by clicking below!
