Scary Monsters Magazines #114! 2019 Howl-O-Ween Issue

Just arriving at newsstands and comic book shops everywhere, the 2019 Halloween issue of Scary Monsters!

Scary Monsters #114

For those that don’t know about SM, the mag touts itself as the REAL Monster Magazine. SM is a classic horror and sci-fi film magazine in the tradition of the original Famous Monsters of Filmland. Great articles about classic creatures from the heyday of imaginative cinema, on pulpy black and white paper.

Issue #114 features an article I’ve written about Super Scary Saturday. SSS was a horror host show that ran on the TBS Superstation from 1987-1989. The host was the legendary Grampa Al Lewis, of Munsters fame.

The show introduced me to many monster movies I’ve loved my entire life, especially Godzilla and Hammer Horror, which they featured in heavy rotation! For this piece I was about to track down the series’ creator, writer, and producer Jeff Grimshaw. He gave some fascinating insight into the creation of the show and what it was like to work with Lewis.

There’s lots of other amazing content in the issue. 140 plus pages of content on a wide range of film, television, and even the paranormal. If you’re interested in the ghostly folklore of Maine, you’ll like this one!
