Well, it finally happened. Editor and Publisher Jim Clatterbaugh has announced the upcoming last issue of his award-winning magazine, MONSTERS FROM THE VAULT. For two decades, Clatterbaugh has brought to his admiring audience some of, if not the best, words and pictures from the era of classic monsters. Jim explains:
"While it's much later than planned, the time has finally come to reveal the contents and covers for the final issue of Monsters from the Vault. The issue was initially set to premiere at Monster Bash in June 2015, but due to a couple of medical setbacks that required both me and my wife to have surgery (she already had hers, and mine will be on May 6th), the issue will now premiere at Monster Bash on the weekend of October 16-18, 2015. First, the issue is going to be huge (over 200-plus pages). Second, the issue will have 5 cover variants (a possible 6th will be revealed at a later date). Because of the size and cover variants, plus my desire to not rack up a HUGE printing bill for my final issue, I've decided to go the print-on-demand route through Amazon's CreateSpace."
