FAMOUS MONSTERS


This photo might be the catalyst for my love of Frankenstein and Batman.  I know a lot of it stems from early issues of FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND magazine which would often have stories on the old Batman TV show as well as ads for 8mm films of the 1943 Batman serial.

Or this boss ad for a Batman Model kit from one of the issues--


I must have had a good half dozen of these kits-- they would never survive playing with them.  FAMOUS MONSTERS has been revived a number of times, but it's never been the same.
