We’re very excited to have a “Frightful Five” interview in The Outre Eye of Daniel XIII‘s column on Famous Monsters of Filmland!
When I was very young, I became pretty obsessed with the Universal monsters. Even more than an obsession with the films themselves, I became compulsively interested in reading about the monsters. First, I turned to a series of books at my elementary school library, and then eventually to Famous Monsters of Filmland. Although publication ceased (initially) around the time I started getting really into reading Famous Monsters (I’m revealing my age here!), my favorite comic book store carried back issues, which I bought, read, and traded with friends. The initial publisher, Warren, was also responsible for one of my favorite mail-order items, Genuine Soil from Dracula’s Castle (our song about soil). So, it’s amazingly cool to get to do a wonderful interview with Daniel XIII under the Famous Monsters name about our upcoming film, Blood of the Tribades!
