Famous Monsters

Everybody loves monsters – and nobody loved them more than Forest Ackerman editor of Famous Monsters of Filmland Magazine. You gotta love the artwork on these covers. My absolute favorite is #130 with Peter Cushing as Van Helsing. It is absolutely stunning. Enjoy.

Halloween Hotties: Weird Tales

Weird Tales (1923-1954) was known for famous writers such as Lovecraft.  But most of us remember it for the racy and really fun and totally sexist covers. I’m sharing a few in case you need any ideas for Halloween costumes. Um, some of these gals don’t have much in the way of costumes but use your imagination.

I love this stuff!

From Wikipedia (a fun fact): In 1933 Weird Tales hired the former fashion designer and illustrator Margaret Brundage to produce the magazine’s cover illustrations, making Brundage the only female cover artist of the pulp era. She created many striking images, especially of nude or semi-nude young women in provocative poses (her whipping scenes attracted the highest attention). Though her art was far from flawless, Brundage’s covers became a focus of extreme attention and controversy—which of course helped to sell the magazine.

 

Halloween Hotties is a regular October 2013 feature on Vampiremaman.com.

Keep checking back between now and Halloween for more Halloween Hotties!
