The cover artwork for FM (Famous Monsters) sure isnt what it used to be. This ain't no work by Basil Gogos (and is that really Henry Hull?)

And FM is now $9.95 an issue?? Yikes!  faint2.gif

Again I refer to the African Queen - If I were to back and restore it, no one would be able to read the great Charlotte North Carolina Exchange stamp on the back... That probably mean this one hung up all over the state in South Carolina...  Now that just adds to the poster - completely lost if backed...

Just some of the things I ponder.  If I linen back this, that history is pretty much forever gone...  



Chris (Gingerman), I think you will appreciate this post and image, too, since you were talking about the exchange stamp on the back of your poster recently.

Charlie, did you end up backing this? Or leaving it as is?

I love it  thumbsup.gif. I will also not back mine. 1 it doesn't need it, 2 I don't want to cover up the stamp! 

Jeff Thanks for pointing this out!!!!

A post-Uncle Forry Famous Monsters of Filmland issue from Nov/Dec of 2012.

Late artist Basil Gogos saved the day on this issue's cover art.  notworthy.gif

I was recently looking at several of my issues of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, and for a minute or 3, got very excited when I saw this CGC-graded (8.5) copy of #24 being offered on ebay for a BIN of $3,308.00!!  faint2.gif  The seller is Stephen Fishler, the owner of Metropolis Comics AND proud owner of the only known copy of the Frankenstein 6 sheet.  notworthy.gif

https://www.ebay.com/itm/FAMOUS-MONSTERS-OF-FILMLAND-24-VF-8-5/372005443939?hash=item569d409963:g:wE8AAOSw5bFZXzhE



There is black writing on the "R" of Monsters (looks like $24) and some surface scratches or scuffs.

So I pulled out my copy. Based on the condition of mine - no writing, scuffs, spine tears, I was figuring it should sell for at least $3500.00 (I wish). Until I did a further search and saw that others are selling the same issue, in various grades, ranging from about 19.95-60.00

So I dont know if Fishler's price is a typo? Dunno.  dontknow.gif

My dream of retiring and bubble burst...  :'(   ;D


My copy (sorry for the slightly blurry pic):
