My Very First Issue Of FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND!!


This is the very first issue of FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND that I ever got when I was only 7 years old. I was with my Dad when he was shopping at the HARDING WAY NEWSSTAND in Stockton, when this cover literally begged me to get this magazine. It said to me, "Little Boy, Get Me, Read Me!". And Dad bought it for me. Even though I watched Horror Movies at home, it would still be more than 4 years before I would see Bob Wilkins, even though I had heard of him. 1973 would be the year I first saw Bob Wilkins. In fact, It was about 35 years ago this year that I first saw Bob on KTXL TV 40 on Saturday Nights.
