    Can’t wait for this. Haven’t been able to bring myself to purchasing a Rue Morgue or Fango in years because of their repetitive snooooooze factor.

      HorrorHound kicks total and complete ass! At least the two issues I’ve read so far.

    I like it but 3 horror mags might be overkill.

    I love that they picked up the numbering of the magazine. I’ll be picking it up.

    I had the opportunity to interview Forry Ackerman in the early 1990’s for my college newspaper. What a warm and funny man..just an all around great guy. I can still remember reading Famous Monsters of Filmland as a kid in the late 70’s and always being impressed by the often illustrated covers. I think Forry would have gotten a kick out of this..especially since it features the first screen vampire.

    Very,very cool.
