REGGIE BANNISTER TED V. MIKELS TIM SULLIVAN BEN MODNEY RENOLD MONDEN etc Next generation Monster Magazine, Fangoria basically took the lead over established originally by Famous Monsters of Filmland (1958). Devoted to Classic monsters, aliens, creepy creatures etc. It embraced and introduced many fans to the more graphic SLASHER- SPLATTER- GIALLO films that were emerging as the dominant genres. Benefiting from "slick paper" and full color sections more like the general professional pictorial news magazines of the time.
