FAMOUS MONSTERS FEARBOOK VOL. 1 COMING FROM HERMES PRESS
Hermes Press is noted for their archival quality volumes that specialize in the field of comic art. Coming soon is a collection of the best from the latest incarnation of FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND. Included are articles and features, a cover gallery with variants and some material that was previously only available in limited quantities. The cover is by Rick Baker.
The price is a little steep At $59.95 only the most hardcore of collectors will spring for this, I imagine. Otherwise, if you've been buying FM's products for the last year-and-a-half, then you've got most of what's offered here. Nevertheless, this is certain to be a beautiful addition to any Monsterologist's bookshelf.
Here is the text from the Captain Company order page:
"Vol. 1 of the FM FEARBOOK features the best interviews, articles, and features from our first 18 months back from the grave (2010-2011)! DRACULA, GODZILLA, ISLAND OF LOST SOULS, Hammer Horror, Heavy Metal, they're all here. With interviews from Rick Baker, Steven Spielberg, J.J. Abrams, Haruo Nakajima, John Carpenter, and many more!
